ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Not everyone who needs all- or 4-wheel-drive traction wants an SUV. SUVs can be large, pricey and bad on gas - all traits many drivers actively look to avoid. Knowing that, we've made a list of some of the top sedans offered with all-wheel drive. They may not have the ground clearance or visibility of an SUV, but they'll give you all-weather traction when the weather gets tough.

Audi A4

The Audi A4 is a midsize luxury sedan that offers all-wheel-drive security for a surprisingly reasonable price of just over $35, 000. That price buys a 220-horsepower 4-cylinder engine, leather seats, automatic climate control and an infotainment system that boasts satellite radio and iPod integration. Drivers also can choose between a standard 6-speed manual and a fuel-saving 8-speed automatic. And while it's true that many well-equipped A4s cost more than $40, 000, that's still a good price for a luxury sedan with high-end features and an all-wheel-drive system.

BMW 3 Series

The BMW 3 Series is a popular sedan that combines "sport" with "luxury." Drivers who pay a little extra can also add "all-weather security" to the 3 Series' list of accolades, since BMW offers the feature for , 000 on all three 3 Series models - the 320i, the 328i and the 335i. The least expensive is the 320i, which starts around , 000 with BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system, while a 335i xDrive starts around , 000. Our suggestion: Try them all and see which one better suits your needs - and your budget.

Chrysler 300

The Chrysler 300 is a full-size sedan known for bold styling and a long list of equipment. Among drivers in cold climates, it's also known as one of the few full-size sedans that offer an all-wheel drive system - something that rivals from Chevrolet and Toyota can't claim. The all-wheel-drive system is optional on all versions except the high-performance SRT8, which uses the 300's standard rear-wheel-drive setup. Opt for the all-wheel-drive version, typically around $2, 500 depending on the 300 trim, and you can choose between the highly praised 300-hp Pentastar V6 (starting around , 000) or the muscular 363-hp HEMI V8 (from , 500).

Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion is among the best midsize sedans on sale today, offering a long list of options and engine choices for a wide variety of buyers. Those choices extend to an all-wheel-drive system; the Fusion is among the few midsize sedans on the market that offer it. The only catch: If you want it, you can't get a 47-mpg Fusion Hybrid. And you have to step up to the Fusion Titanium, which starts around $31, 000 - or $33, 000 with the all-wheel-drive option. Still, with few other choices among midsize sedans - and with the Fusion Titanium's long list of standard features - the Fusion is a good pick.

Ford Taurus

Like the Chrysler 300, the Ford Taurus is a rare breed: a full-size sedan with an all-wheel-drive option. While you can't get it on a base-level Taurus SE, Ford has made the system available throughout the Taurus's other trims: It's optional on the SEL ($30, 000 with shipping) and upscale Limited ($35, 000) models, and it's standard on the high-performance Taurus SHO ($41, 000). Unfortunately, you can't get Ford's EcoBoost 4-cylinder with it, but many cold-climate drivers will consider that an easy tradeoff.
