Due to the fact that the global auto industry is developing dynamically, auto lovers have the opportunity today to choose vehicle models with all-wheel drive from different price categories. It is also caused by the intentions of car manufacturers to meet constantly growing demand and attract more clients.
As all-wheel drive (or AWD) vehicle models, particularly crossovers, are standing out for their performance features, it becomes clear why people prefer such automobile configurations. We at Salvagebid decided to dig deeper and conduct research on this topic. This article is devoted to an overview of well-performing AWD crossovers you can find on our car auction platform. We will look at some of the most interesting offers for drivers who are looking for high-ground crossover clearance and a high level of comfort.
This crossover with pronounced sporty features has all-wheel drive as standard. The 2017 Cayenne, which we will review here, also offers an effective traction control system that makes driving more comfortable. Salvagebid also has the Porsche Cayenne configuration available on the platform.
The 2017 Porsche Cayenne boasts a clearance that is large enough for an urban crossover, which is 8.4 inches. With such a setup, this German model can easily overcome moderate potholes on the road. For those who find this not enough, it is possible to order an optional air suspension, which will increase the ground clearance to 10.5 inches.
Speaking of various configurations, we recommend motorists choose between a 340-hp gasoline engine (3.0 liters) and a 2.9-liter unit with a power potential of 440 hp.
The exterior of the new Cayenne is solid. The body kit has been updated and added in size compared to older configurations. The volume of the front wings has increased, and the body as a whole is made of high-quality materials. The sporty character of the 2017 Cayenne has not suffered from the increase in size, and the crossover is able to please the owner with dynamic acceleration and precise cornering. In general, the car’s appearance is quite aggressive and stylish.
The interior design is made in the best traditions of the legendary German auto brand. At the same time, we can also note great trim materials and a new sports steering wheel with an abundance of functions. The multimedia system also has improved software, and the rear seats stand out with an optional version with ventilation.
Range Rover Evoque
In this article, we will review the first generation of the Range Rover Evoque. These models were manufactured from 2011 to 2018 and are still very popular today. It is because the first-generation configurations are very close to the ideal embodiment of the city car concept and have impressive ground clearance, which reaches 8.4 inches. You can also get acquainted with the Salvagebid offers when it comes to Range Rover Evoque.
The British crossover cannot be described as large. It rather belongs to the segment of compact vehicles in this category. A stylish design, with a touch of daring sporty aggression, allows this crossover to stand out brightly in the traffic on the city streets. The engineers were counting on the fact that the Range Rover Evoque model conquered the expanses of urbanized territories. If desired, the crossover appearance can be made even more stylish: there is an opportunity to order optional design packages.
When choosing the Evoque configuration, motorists who love dynamic driving should initially pay attention to the 4-cylinder gasoline engine, which has a volume of 2.0 liters and can produce 240 hp. For diesel-oriented drivers, Range Rover offers the Evoque models with a choice of two 2.2-liter 4-cylinder engines: the first one has 150 hp, and the second is more powerful with 190 hp.
BMW X6 M
We recommend you take a look at the second generation of the BMW X6 M model (2014-2019 years of manufacture). This crossover, with 8.4 inches of clearance from the Bavarian automaker, attracts attention because, with significantly increased power performance, it is quite economical. We invite you to choose your best BMW X6 M on Salvagebid.
Let’s start with the exterior. A new aerodynamic body kit, revised optics, eye-catching 20-inch wheels with a unique design, and an impressive stylish radiator grille make the X6 M configuration look sporty and aggressive.

The sporty X6 M hides an upgraded 8-cylinder petrol unit under the hood that has a displacement of 4.4 liters and can reach an impressive 575 hp, due to additional installed equipment.
It is an affordable mid-size crossover with 7.8 inches of clearance that will always have its fans. From our point of view, the best option for a used vehicle of this model is one with a year of manufacture starting from 2014, when it was modernized. We at Salvagebid also have something to present to you if we speak about the Chevrolet Captiva.
The basic Chevrolet Captiva configuration is equipped with a 2.2-liter diesel engine that can produce 184 hp. In addition to the diesel power unit, you can find the Chevrolet Captiva is offered with two petrol motors of 2.4 and 3.0 liters and a capacity of 171 and 258 hp, respectively.
The manufacturer offers an expressive interior with a comfortable front panel. For interior design, only high-quality fabrics and materials of factory quality are used.
Those who are focused on cars with high cross-country ability cannot ignore the legend of Japanese all-wheel drive—the Subaru Forester. The most popular is the 2013 AWD configuration with 8.6 inches of clearance, which we will review here. You can also buy modern models of the Subaru Forester on Salvagebid.
The fourth generation Subaru Forester is distinguished by expressive headlights, a radiator grille, and modern bumpers. As for the interior of the Subaru Forester, it is made in the classic style of the Japanese brand but with the use of more soft plastic, good-quality fabric, or leather.
Among the power plants of this Japanese SUV, the most affordable is the 171-hp AWD version with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine, so we recommend you take a look at this Subaru Forester configuration.
