I am considering the purchase of another 70-series car (#4) and would like to get some opinions about the relative perfomance in day to day driving betewen the LPT and the T5 engine. I have had 3 cars with the T5 for several years and have become used to fairly good performance. I have read that the LPT may have different gearing and that the low end perfomance may be comparable if not a bit better.

I am quite impressed with the performance from my 2005 2.5 XC70 AWD. Quite honestly the car will do what i want it to do under just about any condition, PLENTY of power. I was driving a 928s 5-speed to work every day prior to getting the XC, and have been driving Volvo ever since. It is a rocket, sure not the fastest go-cart of all time but very nice overall package. I have NO complaints about the motor. It is the third 5-cylinder turbo we've had, great motor.

LPTs are nicer in general around town
The low end,off the line performance is much better than a T5
30 MPH and up, different ballgame
