Had you seen some places I've been in front-wheel drive econoboxes such as an Opel Corsa/Holden Barina and a Dacia Logan, you wouldn't be so skeptical about the lack of 4WD. By the way I guess you know what a CitroŽn 2CV is capable regarding off-road ability even though the majority of them is also FWD. On a sidenote, if you could get a differential locker (or something like the Quaife ATB differential) it would be enough to handle most situations for which proper 4WD/AWD would be overkill.
