Cord 810 was the first front wheel drive vehicle with independent front suspension, hidden headlights, hidden door hinges, rear-hinged hood, concealed fuel filler door, variable speed windshield wipers, and a standard equipment radio.

There were others that implemented FWD prior to those (can't remember who/don't know), mostly in racing applications though. I'm sure someone has, or will look it up, and provide more info.

Troy, Cord was one of the first with the L29 in 1929, Ruxton also had a FWD in 1928 but I think Alvis beat them both with a consumer version of their racing 12/50 model in 1928. These were all made in really small numbers, though.
