You don't need AWD in winter, I spent last winter in Frisco, CO snowboarding, and my focus did just fine, we would drive it over Vail Pass on powder days, you can't get much more wild than that. For me, FWD = easier to drive on a not known twisty road. (Gas = understeer, brake = oversteer) better mileage, less maintenance, etc.
Frisco you say?

Gorgeous place...

As for these cars, I'd probably take the Veloster Turbo. It's quirky and cheap enough for me to afford. Also good enough on gas to be my DD!
