    Even with studded snow tires, I'd break down halfway up.

    They have the same effectiveness as Subaru or DSMs AWD, (DSM and Subaru have neater options with either their optional LSDs or the STi's biaser) making them a bit more superior. But I would lean to whichever setup didn't make the car dive to 19 mpg.

    If snow is the real issue, then I think that Part-time 4WD is best route to go. I do know, for a fact, that my Subaru could not do that incline (The Loyale, that is)

    vw/audi can put up to 100% of power to each individual wheel.

    its not some lame ass 70/30 bullshit.

    isnt the SH-AWD like that too?

    And also isnt ATTESA just a front-rear bias system?

    ATTESSA is just a biasing, but then again, that's what any AWD active system is. Also, about VW putting 100% of the power, does that mean it has LSD ?

    I could drive up any incline as long as I've got a big enough solid-fuel rocket.
