Isn't it the case that it depends on the size and function of the vehicle? Typically it seems that smaller cars are FWD, larger RWD. Handling, parking and snow etc aside, other things need to be considered like tyre wear, power efficiency (isn't it the case that the longer and more involved the drive line, the greater the power loss?), turning circle radius, and no doubt many others...

Furthermore some car companies have left the decision to their propsective market: I understand the Lexus GS 400/300 came out FWD but was later changed to RWD for a more conservative pitch which improved sales considerably. In the light of this tendency simply listing the car companies that don't use FWD might not answer our question...

Hmmm... doesn't answer the question... Is there a correct answer?
