"For 2014 there are plenty of all-wheel-drive cars and trucks available under $25,000, so we culled many from the list to arrive at the 10 we felt best represented the category," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director of Kelley Blue Book.  "Subaru clearly is the leader in the category, snagging the top five spots.  The Subaru name is practically synonymous with all-wheel-drive, and the automaker builds and markets their vehicles with outdoor challenges in mind.  The remaining five spots on the list feature AWD versions of compact-to-midsize SUVs from import manufacturers Honda, Nissan, Mazda and Kia."
