Top 10 Cheapest AWD Cars and Crossovers

4. Mitsubishi Lancer SE $21,090


2013 Mitsubishi Lancer GT

Thanks in large part to to the Fast and Furious movie franchise, people look at Lancers and see its red-hot Evo cousin.  While the low level version is little more than a shadow of its athletic sibling, it can still be fun to drive.

Here we have the basic Lancer in SE guise, which includes the brands all-wheel-control system which delivers power to all four-wheels. This trim package includes a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which puts out 168 hp and achieves 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined thanks to its CVT transmission.

It might be looking a bit old these days though, and the Japanese automaker’s sails are looking limp in North America, but this SE model certainly packs the impressive all-wheel drive feature at an attractive price-point.

  • “It’s” is not a possessive. Please drop the apostrophe; it appears in three of the selections.

    It’s is not a possessive it’s a contraction for “it is”.

    Why would anyone buy a Lancer when they can get a Legacy?

  • mlr262

    At least this isn’t a paper magazine. Getting people to buy it would be a tough sail.

    Why would an article leave out the Suzuki sx4? It is the cheapest AWD car available.

    It is no longer sold in the US

  • Hello

    Suzuki stop selling cars in the US in 2012. Some of the Suzuki dealerships stayed open to continue servicing cars for those who do own a Suzuki.

    My wife and I bought 2008 SX4 and loved them so much, we bought 2 more in 2012. Then they pulled out of the US and the local dealership closed . . . and now we’re bummed. Anyone want to buy a 2012 SX4? 🙁

    I love my Suzuki – no idea why they would pull out – best car out there – I owned two subarus, and they were nice rides, but so so expensive to maintain!! My Suzuki is the best AWD car I’ve had – if they were still around, I’d be shopping right now for a new one – now I am planning to keep my 2011 til it won’t go anymore!!!
