OK, but how well would an AWD Corolla perform compared to a FWD one? That's the real question.
Articles like that get headlines, though.
Plus AWD is to supposed to help you get through. If you had to get your wife-in-labor to the hospital to deliver your first born in the middle of a snow storm, would you take the Corolla or the Rover?
Answer: your Subaru. It's lighter and brakes better, but still offers AWD.

K, there's a project for you. Put the fuse in on your Forester and see if you get stuck this winter.

That just feels wrong. An idiot light pops up that says "FWD", as if FWD is a defect, so you know how Subaru feels about that.

"..how well would an AWD Corolla perform.."
Considering it would of necessaty be a F/awd in which the clear majority of the time it would be FWD only......

Yup, front axle would already be slipping by the time any power was sent aft.
