I am on the verge of buying a Sportage, which I will use for standard highway/city driving. We do get a pretty decent amount of snow in the winter time and all my friends with SUVs recommend 4WD. However, the dealers at Kia, as well as at Ford (Escape), Hyundai (Tuscon), and Chevrolet (Equinox) all essentially tried to talk me down to the FWD, stating that the Traction Control was sufficient. Do the dealers have an ulterior motive here? If I'm not doing off-roading, do I need AWD?
