Getting around in the Nebraska, Kansas or Colorado winter can be a daunting task. Many drivers spring for all-wheel-drive SUVs. That does make it easier to get around, but what if you don’t like SUVs or just want to stick to a smaller vehicle? Slide behind the wheel of a new 2017 AWD sedan.
2017 Ford Fusion
The 2017 Ford Fusion is a great option for getting around town in any weather. On this 2017 AWD sedan, intelligent AWD sensors help to balance torque between the front and rear wheels. This gives you enhanced handling and helps maximize traction. The Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) system will also help with pull-drift compensation to help continually correct irregularities in the road. This system improves overall steering feel, especially when you’re stuck in traffic with heavy side winds.
2017 Subaru Legacy
The 2017 Subaru Legacy features Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is designed to optimize both traction and balance. The entire system lies along the centerline of the vehicle, balancing weight distribution between the two sides to help provide the best performance and control. The system continually keeps the power routed to all four wheels to ensure grip in the snow, rain or on rough terrain. Combine that with the SUBARU BOXER® engine and the fuel-efficient 34 MPG highway.
Every Subaru also features a 4-wheel fully independent suspension system. That helps smooth out those bumpy roads and give you great responsiveness. That helps the winter driver feel that much more connected with the road.
2017 Audi A4 allroad Wagon
Audi’s legendary quattro® all-wheel drive system is tailored to each specific vehicle it’s found on. The 2017 Audi A4 has an available quattro® system that intuitively sends power to all four wheels. It helps deliver power to the wheels with the most grip to maximize traction in wet-weather conditions. This 2017 AWD sedan has its quattro® system always on and always ready to help the driver out in winter weather. Audi’s quattro® system became the first permanent all-wheel drive system for passenger cars thirty-five years ago. That’s peace of mind you can’t beat.
2017 Infiniti Q50
The 2017 Infiniti Q50 features an Intelligent AWD that instantly adapts to changing road and weather conditions. Wheelspin, throttle and speed are all monitored within the vehicle. This 2017 AWD sedan also has up to 50% of the available power that can be sent to the front wheels for better traction. When AWD isn’t needed 100% of the power is sent to the rear wheels for a more responsive ride.
The Direct Adaptive Steering® on the Q50 digitally transmits steering inputs directly to the wheels. That means no mechanical connection and quicker steering. It also gives you a smoother ride than you’ve ever imagined.
2017 Lexus IS
The Lexus combines safety with all-wheel drive. This 2017 AWD sedan features all-wheel drive standard on the IS 300 and available on the IS 350. On the Lexus IS AWD automatically allocates engine power between the front and rear axels. Normally the vehicle sits at 50/50 power between the axels, but in wet-road conditions, the power can switch to as much as 30/70. All-wheel drive helps provide enhanced traction and control on many road surfaces and conditions.
The 2017 Lexus IS also has the most comprehensive safety system ever offered in an IS. Security comes standard in this 2017 AWD Sedan from the Lexus Safety System+. The safety features included on most IS trim levels are: a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, LED taillamps, headlamps and LED daytime running lights. This 2017 AWD sedan also includes Lexus Enform Safety connect, Intuitive Parking Assist and a Blind Spot monitor with rear and cross-traffic alert.
2017 Dodge Charger
A 2017 AWD sedan made of pure muscle. All-wheel drive is available in a couple trim levels: SCT AWD and SE AWD are each 2017 Dodge Charger options with all-wheel drive. This is the powerful vehicle to slide behind the wheel of if you’re looking for more than 45 years of muscle-car heritage coursing through your veins. Enjoy the lean, low profile and amped-up attitude of the 2017 Dodge Charger begs you to put the pedal to the metal – no matter the weather.
2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Luxury, safety and all-wheel drive. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E300 4Matic delivers it all. With 4-wheel multilink suspension standard, each wheel has its own independent suspension. It also features a redesigned 4-link front axle. That’s a further evolution from the standard-setting 5-arm multilink rear design. Both settings employ numerous lightweight, highly rigid forged aluminum components.
This 2017 AWD sedan also comes with lowered suspension with selective dampening system standard. That’s a system that’s engineered to balance performance and refinement while automatically adjusting the individual shock absorbers based on road surface. Or you can opt for comfort suspension with selective damping system. That system is engineered to ideally balance comfort and control with selective damping automatically adjusting the individual shock absorbers based on the road surface.
