What are the best AWD systems?

I want to get AWD on my next car. I know that several manufacturers have branded AWD systems, but I'm not sure which is the best. What are the top-rated AWD systems?

“If you want the best all-wheel drive (AWD) system, you have to do some searching.
Unlike other vehicle components, being the first to offer AWD doesn’t necessarily make you the king of the industry.
According to experts, these are the best AWD systems, which also vary by cost and capability:
  • Audi Quattro
  • Ford Intelligent All-Wheel Drive
  • Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
  • Acura Super Handling All-Wheel Drive
Any of these systems should provide the traction, stability, and precision you’re searching for.
Some types of vehicles are more expensive to insure than others. To help you find the best rates, try using the free Jerry app. Jerry compares rates from the top 50 companies and delivers the best deals to your phone in minutes.”
