VW Golf Sportwagen 4Motion or Alltrack? +1 point for wagon body, -1 for questionable performance. The 1.8T EA888 engine is pretty tuneable and there's a lot of aftermarket parts for the chassis.
-9 for being a modern VAG product.

Exactly. After doing time with a Jetta for 3 years, I'll never buy a VAG product ever again.

My girlfriend's AWD Toyota Matrix doesn't send enough power to the rear wheels to be playful, even in the snow. However, it is really impressive for how much snow it can provide basic transportation through. It's a 2003 without TC or SC. I'd prefer it to be FWD and get another MPG or two though.

Gonna throw stock springs and dampers in it and do some slightly taller than stock aggressive snows and some rally lighting. I'm goin for a lancia stratos rallycar vibe

I fully support this plan.

Our Juke is AWD, but only when we put it in all AWD. When not in AWD, it is FWD mode. This is a nice feature.
