That said, also from the list, I was pretty impressed with the Forester's sand handling abilities.
A 4x4's wheels are all powered equally where as AWD has each wheel receiving different power depending on traction/preset
Sometimes I talk to myself if I feel like having an intelligent conversation.
Can you really not use those vehicles there?
People also say you need a 4x4 for Sani Pass but that's BS. Passed a Merc W123 going in the opposite direction once and we pissed ourselves laughing. The border dudes reckon they see the guy a lot as he goes into Underberg to go buy stuff and then comes back over the border.

Forrester Action, IMO no other Station Wagon can match it ... not to mention quite a few 4X4's

Never never under estimate the capabilities of a Forester unless you want to load 1ton of sand!!
