My point of view

RWD Pros:
-More fun and better to drive, summer AND winter
-Cheaper to buy
-Cheaper to run, more fuel efficient
-Lower weight - equals better driving experience and performance (braking "nimbleness", etc.)
-Better handling (and maybe better steering feel?)

RWD Cons:
-Should have an LSD and its not available as an OEM option.
-Could have problems with steep hills in rough winter conditions

AWD Pros:
-Better off-the-line-tracion
-Better traction (up winter hills) and stability, especially on low grip surface

AWD cons:
-Less engaging to drive
-More expensive
-Higher fuel consumption
