That's more a function of your tires than the drivetrain.
I really don't understand what the AWD obsession is for. Most cars in the north that are on the road are not AWD, and for decades people have been making it through winters with the proper set of tires on their vehicle.
I will be at least one person w/ a RWD BMW this winter here in NE... with winter tires... and I think I'll be just fine.
