Max Traction All-wheel drive has long been recognized for its advantages in adverse weather conditions such as ice, snow and rain when available traction is at a minimum. Today’s AWD systems have become so advanced that many high-performance vehicles incorporate high-tech AWD systems to maximize traction even in dry conditions. Most systems include some combination of electronic controls, sophisticated differentials and torque-splitting devices to transfer torque between the axles and from side to side in fractions of a second. What follows are the latest high-performance vehicles employing AWD to enhance performance. But remember, if a vehicle rides on summer tires for maximum performance, to take advantage of all-wheel drive in winter weather conditions the tires will need to be changed to at least high-performance all-season tires, if not dedicated winter tires — no AWD system will keep a vehicle out of a snowbank if it’s shod with summer rubber.

Audi R8 Audi was one of the first manufacturers to develop high-performance cars with permanent all-wheel drive, beginning with the debut of the original quattro at the Geneva Motor Show in 1980. After a string of successful rally cars and a quattro coupe for the street, Audi began offering quattro AWD across a wide range of models. When the mid-engine Audi R8 sports car debuted as a 2008 model, quattro permanent AWD was part of the performance package. Originally powered by a 420-horsepower 4.2-liter V8, followed later by a 5.2-liter V10 with up to 550 horsepower, the first generation R8 had an eight-year run. The second-generation 2017 Audi R8 — which debuted last spring in Geneva — will go on sale in 2016 and launch with two engine options: a 540-horsepower 5.2-liter V10 or a 610-horsepower V10 for the R8 V10 Plus.

‹ Photo: Porsche Cars North America, Inc. › ‹ 2 of 11 › Porsche 911 The highest rated all-wheel drive car in the U.S. News sports cars rankings is the Porsche 911. Years ago, Porsche managed to tame the 911’s tail-happy handling, which means both the rear-wheel-drive 911 Carrera and the all-wheel drive 911s are world-class sports cars. The base engine in the 911 Carrera is a new turbocharged, 3.0-liter six-cylinder. While all-wheel drive is optional here, it is standard on the more powerful Turbo and Turbo S models. The handling is incredibly sharp and secure and the interior is luxurious – for two. The rear seats are best reserved for very small children, pets, or parcels. Adding to comfort in 2017 models is the adaptive suspension, now standard. It allows this uncompromising sports car to serve comfortably as a daily driver.

Which All-Wheel Drive Sports Car Is Right for You? While most people want all-wheel drive for driving on slippery roads, this feature may also have a beneficial effect on dry-road handling.

The answer probably comes down to issues surrounding cost and weight. Nonetheless, in recent years we have seen an increasing number of sports cars and sports sedans offer all-wheel drive.

The new Ford Focus RS has surpassed the status of “hot hatch” and stands to be one the highest performing vehicles in its class. The RS far exceeds any and all expectations for not only its class, but also several classes above it. The “RS” meaning “rally sport,” comes from a long line of rally and performance vehicles, but has recently adopted a more practical day-to-day design. For instance, this hyper hatch comes off the lot with 345 horsepower and up to 347 lb-ft of torque and is matched up with Ford’s inspiring new AWD system, which quite simply changes the way people look at AWD vehicles. The idea behind the system is to essentially leave the car as a front wheel drive vehicle until there is traction loss.

As one of the most iconic and inspiring AWD vehicles in its class, the Subaru WRX STI has no trouble securing its spot on this list. The newest model of the STI still comes with its standard 2.5 liter turbocharged Boxer engine that produces a healthy 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. The STI may not have the most impressive specs, but this car has never been known for its impressive on paper numbers. With a few tools and minimal mechanical experience, anybody can turn this iconic rally racer into a force to be reckoned with. Subaru has recently separated this entry from its Impreza pedigree, making it an entirely different car and ultimately letting Subaru execute some serious interior upgrades. Subaru also manufactures one of the leading AWD systems in all classes, meaning the STI will let you take it through turns at such high speeds you would hardly be able to resist smiling from ear to ear. For just over $35,000 the STI is definitely something for those who want a car that is capable of so much more than driving on the streets.

BMW X5 M As the high-performance version of BMW’s popular X5 crossover, the new BMW X5 M features the most powerful engine developed by BMW for an all-wheel-drive model; the M TwinPower 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 produces 567 horsepower and 553 lb-ft or torque. The driving dynamics of the new X5 M are heavily influenced by the xDrive AWD system and Dynamic Performance Control, which continually vary the torque distribution between the front and rear axles, and side-to-side between the rear wheels. Under normal conditions most of the torque gets directed toward the rear axle, but up to 100 percent of the torque can be delivered to either axle. Dynamic Performance Control continually monitors torque distribution between the rear wheels to reduce the tendency to understeer inherent with AWD vehicles. BMW also offers the X6 M with the same drivetrain as the X5 M.
