    Interesting, have to watch how this sells against the Chevy Trax. I agree pretty cheap AWD upgrade but the upgraded engine is a joke. Better to stay with the smaller engine which has better Torque.

     

    Wonder how good of an AWD system it is and can it go 100% front to 100% RWD to 50/50? Seems the cheaper AWD's usually have limitations on just how good of an AWD they are.
