Our "other" car is a Subaru Outback. My wife loves it and in Florida, where we have some really bad downpours it does come in handy. Don't think I'd be willing to spend the extra $1,000+ for it.

Getting great fuel economy doesn't do you a lot of good when you're stuck in the snow. I'm assuming that because Fiat went through all of the trouble of setting up Fiat dealerships in the midwest, that they want to sell cars in the midwest. Guess what? It snows A LOT in the midwest and AWD / 4WD can be a deal breaker for a lot of the midwestern market. They certainly wouldn't sell fewer cars if they had an AWD model, and it's my understanding that Fiat already has a compatible AWD setup for the 500.
I never have a problem with front wheel drive in snow, and if it's that deep I would wait for the plows to venture out.

AWD is like satellite TV -- you think it's a must-have, but it's really more of a want-to-have. ****, I lived through eight winters in MN and most of that was with a RWD Volvo and a F(ront)WD Saturn.

For the three years I had a 4WD truck, guess how many times I actually used the 4WD? Probably three times, and that was to get in/out of the driveway when I was too lazy to clear it first.
