RWD? AWD? FWD? Motor Trend Makes the Call

'Round Jalopnik parts, the only proper driven wheels are the rear wheels. Unless you feel compelled to push power through the fronts as well. We owned a wonderful '90 Legend for years (our only front-driver), which featured one of the soy-milk silkiest V6s we've ever encountered. We still pine for that motor, but we said nothing but good riddance to bad juju regarding the torque steer and its tendency to plow in all but the sweepiest of corners. Now with the arrival of cars like the WRX STi, the Grand Prix GXP and the G35 6MT, right around 300hp all, but with different drivetrain configurations, the truth can be told.
