I'm considering purchasing an XC70, and I'm looking at the DSTC option. (A $695 upgrade). Is this the same DSTC that's used on the XC90. I've heard Volvo is making DSTC standard on all of their vehicles next year - will the same DSTC available on the XC70 now be used on the vehicles next year, or will it be a modified DSTC.<p>Thanks

DSTC, pretty much, functions the same on all Volvo models. What may be confusing you is the <i>additional</i> feature found in the XC90s; RSC.<p>Yannis

Re: DSTC question (GrecianVolvo)

Thanks for the response. I think I am confusing it with RSC. Does anyone know the difference between the operation of RSC and DSTC?<p>Thanks

Re: DSTC question (j421)

Here's a Volvo page published just today which describes the two XC90 systems, and many more:<p><A HREF="http://volvocars-pr.com/index.asp?mediaid=3690&menupar=newsroom&lang=1&flash=0&menuhighlight=archive" TARGET="_blank">The New Volvo XC90: Holistic Approach to Retain Top Ratings for Safety</A><p>Tom.

Do you think the DSTC is worth it? None of the volvo dealers I've looked at have an xc70 with DSTC, and I think finding one will require some luck.<br>

Thanks for the replies. I'm thinking of leasing an xc70, and to lock in current rates, I cannot order one. There aren't any on the lot with DSTC, so I'm deciding if I should just wait until next year, or lease one without DSTC.<p>Does anyone happen to know of a volvo dealer in the northeast who has an xc70 with DSTC in stock?
