Go with the All Wheel Drive (AWD) model if you're in an area that gets snow.
FWD with traction control will only get you so far.
I have driven both FWD and AWD and the AWD is much better in the snow.

I live north of Boston, Ma and have 1998 Olds Intrigue with FWD and traction control. Never had an issue getting stuck on ice or snow. I leave the traction control on all the time.
Considering a 2007 Honda CRV or Rav4 and not sure if I should go with the AWD or FWD with traction control. The AWD has a little extra weight and slightly lower gas mileage. I don't do off roading.
Anyone have any input to help me with my decision.

We have a Odyssey with traction control. I just got my CRV EX-L AWD yesterday and we are having real foul winter weather in the upper mid-west and I was amazed how much more stable the AWD. I strongly recommend you doing a test drive on a snowy day to see the advantage of AWD. I had a breeze driving through snow today.
