Since AWD turns four wheels instead of just two, there's that much more grip, and when the available traction is very low—as on snow and ice—you can accelerate better, with less or even no tire slippage. The vehicle feels stable and doesn't slip or fishtail in a way that makes your heart beat faster.
Is 4WD good for drag racing?
A modern 4wd will give you better acceleration in a straight line than an FR 2wd, as they aren't that much heavier these days and inital acceleration (where drags are won and lost between similar powered cars) is traction limited. Having 4 wheels driving gives a bigger tyre footprint to put more power down.
