Well I'll Be Dipped!!!
1. How much winter do you actually get in Kentucky?I've been wanting a Corolla for quite a while now, but where I live in Eastern Kentucky I think the all wheel drive of the Subaru's would be handy in winter.
2. Tires are waaaaaaaaaay more important that AWD for driving in/on snow/ice.
Two very different cars with two very different price tags. It's odd you're pitting them against one another.
