In the lower segment, FWD means: cheaper, more spacious and more "idiot" proof for the none die hard car enthousiast spending his weekends on burning rubber in powerslides like we do.
Golf GTi and more recently Focus ST to name only two prove there is nice balance potential uptil the hot hach level. So why not? AWD is always more expensive, heavier and reducing driveline efficiency. FWD will be good uptil 118i and 120d level.
