Oh, yeah, I just noticed you're also in Minnesota. All Subaru's are AWD. You have snow, so it would be practical.
I also know that their AWD system is very reliable, as opposed to MB's 4-matics.
If you travel a lot like I do, and go to places where there is snow, like the Northwest, Denver, New England, Subaru's are ubiquitous.
