Best Used Cars with AWD

There are several reasons why you might shop for a vehicle with all-wheel drive (AWD). The most common are to have more confidence driving in inclement weather, have better grip and control for a sportier drive, or maximize traction for light to moderate off-roading.

If you’re in the market for a used car with AWD in Greenville, Washington, or New Bern, which model should you pick? That depends: Are you looking for an AWD sports car you don’t have to keep in the garage when it rains or an SUV for secure family travel?

To help you find the best used cars with AWD, we selected one best model for the sedan, SUV, and wagon categories. Learn more about these traction-confident vehicles below.

Sedan: Audi A4 Premium AWD

The Audi A4 Premium with quattro® AWD is a small sedan that’s big on sport and sophistication. This 5-seat luxury car features a leather-lined interior and a turbocharged engine that provides potent power without accelerating your gas bill.

The quattro® AWD system favors sending power to the rear wheels, contributing to the car’s athleticism. But, with the help of active drive systems that are constantly monitoring performance and reading road surface conditions, it can switch over to distributing power to all four wheels in an instant.


The 7-seat midsize GMC Acadia SUV has a commanding presence, impressive indoor versatility, and the capability to tow and haul. Its advanced AWD system falls right in line. The system’s multi-terrain management function allows you to fine-tune performance based on the road or trail ahead. Choose AWD, Off-Road, Snow, Sport, or Trailer/Tow.

There’s also nearly 80 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear rows folded away and savvy seating features like the smart slide middle seat that provides easy access to the third row.

Wagon: Volvo XC70 AWD

In the case of the Volvo XC70, optional all-wheel drive rounds out a solidly talented crossover/wagon. Volvo’s hallmark, ultra-comfy ergonomic seats make the XC70 an incredible model for long road trips or commutes. 8.3 inches of ground clearance give the XC70 great visibility from the driver’s seat and makes it fit for moderate off-roading.

The Volvo XC70 AWD system’s Instant Traction™ function constantly creates a custom mix of power distribution based on the conditions under each tire, sending power to the wheel(s) with the best grip.
