As it is winter and many around the country are dealing with ice, we have put together a tech feature on DSTC and how it works. It will go live Jan 23 on the front page.
Good iddea, George...

Sure Yannis. One thing to note. We did a piece on ESP several months ago on our VW sister site.
I was recently in Calgary with VCNA driving DSTC cars in snow and ice conditions and got a great feel for it. While there I asked the difference between DSTC and ESP used by VW and Audi, and I was told that the only real differences are algorithms used.
For this reason, I have reprinted, with some changes, an article from our VW sister site, changed to suit Volvo.
I will be doing a secondary article on the S60 AWD in winter situations with an emphasis Haldex and DSTC combined. That'll be in a couple of weeks though.
However, having seen how handy it can be first hand, I decided to fast track this particular article.
