You just proved my point. It is cheaper. A compromise.
And BTW, FWD does better in the snow than RWD.
No it doesn't. Putting a car in a traction-limited environment then having one pair of wheels that provides steering AND drive/braking is stupid. A tire only has so much traction. When it has to do twice as much work AND you have less traction available to start with, how the hell is that better?
