    The engine is in the wrong place in all Subsrus. The error hasn't been corrected and I find it unlikely it ever will be corrected.

    However it has been shown that AWD can compensate for this: see 037 (engine placement correct) vs Quattro A2 (engine placement wrong like Subaru's). The solution was to add power.

    Most days the AWD system wastes fuel and natural resources, increases weight, and reduces reliability (if it were absent it could never fail). In snow, winter tires are more important.

    The awd traction is nice. The amount of traction it gives you almost seems too easy. I've had fwd, rwd and this is my first awd car. I think rwd is more fun but the awd traction does give you a feeling of security especially in bad weather and those tight turns.

    I think from a performance stand point anything with 500 crank hp plus should have awd. I think at that power level its too much power for just 2 wheels.
