Also take note that some of the world's fastest cars (Porsche 911 Turbo, Nissan GT-R, Bugatti Veyron, etc.) all employ full-time AWD. Now granted, those cars are in a much different league, but the point is the "performance" benefits of full-time AWD do trickle down to more mundane vehicles as well.
Those vehicles are primarily RWD, or the AWD unit favors RWD unless there is complete slippage, even then, I don't think they send more than 50% to the front.
Toyota, Audi, Honda, Hyundai.... are primarily FWD vehicles.
The addition of power to he front wheels in a RWD vehicle yields advantage, than addition of power to the rear wheels in a FWD vehicle.

The addition of power to he front wheels in a RWD vehicle yields (greater?) advantage, than addition of power to the rear wheels in a FWD vehicle.
For every rule there is an exception. May I nominate the WRX STi and/or Mitsubishi Evo?

They're all full-time AWD, with a RWD bias, usually around 30/70 - 40/60, front/rear. That F/R bias may shift, depending on driving conditions.
