Buying a small four-wheel drive

My wife has a Hyundai Coupe, having had many BMW 3-Series. She loves the Hyundai, but we want a used small four-wheel drive as my Jaguar XF is useless in the snow. It must be an automatic with air con and she only does 3,000 miles per year and ideally a coupe. Does Audi do anything?

What you really need are winter tyres, because they are far more effective in snow than a 4WD on summer tyres, though a 4WD on all weather or on winter tyres is obviously better still. The smallest Audi coupes with 4WD are A5s, but they are pretty big. For 3000 miles a year, avoid diesels.
