New AWD Vehicles for Less Than $25,000

© Subaru of AmericaLowest Price All-Wheel Drive
Most new vehicles on the road in the U.S. have front-wheel drive, which can be easier to control as well as more fuel efficient. Even the ever-popular crossover typically has two front wheels doing the motive work. However, at particular times all-wheel drive can be extremely useful — the extra traction provided by power going to all four wheels offers better control when roads become wet, icy or snow covered. All-wheel drive can also provide more confidence when heading off pavement for a little adventuring. These are the least expensive new vehicles with all-wheel drive in America — all with starting prices less than $25,000 — ranked in ascending order by price.
