Hello all. First, I tried the search! Yes, it's true. But I couldn't really find what I was looking for. <p>I'm considering getting a 2000-up V70, specifically a turbo 5-speed. Can someone kindly explain to me the differences in the various permutations of this car? I'm drawn to the 'MKII' V70, but I understand some wagons can't be had with a manual trans. Also, which cars/years came with which engines? Finally, which cars are available with AWD, and is there such a thing as a turbo, manual-shift, AWD wagon? <p>Thanks for humoring me, I've never owned a Volvo. I come here from the VW camp.

Re: (16vt)

Model Year. <p>So if I'm reading this right, there is no turbo, manual shift, AWD wagon?

Re: (JRL)

The P2 cars ('01 and younger) were available in a manual trans with the high pressure turbo (T5). No AWD drive though. I know because I just bought one.

Re: (MineMapper)

Not quite sure about the US market concerning AWD model year runs. But as of 2003, the AWD system is a Haldex system vs. viscous coupling and the base turbo engine is the 2.5 as of that year. <p>Cheers,

Re: (NikosXC70)

I think it is becoming clear. So a 2001-up 'P2' V70 can be had with a turbo and manual tranny, but if I also want AWD I'd be looking at a 2004-up V70R (too expensive for me right now). <p>Another question, is the T5 just an appearance package now? I remember the T5's from the 850 days, which were supposed to be pretty hot cars. <p>Edit => Wait, VTT5 may have already answered my question....maybe the manual tranny is only found on the T5 cars? Thanks for being patient with all these questions.

Re: (Varmint)

The T5 has more HP due to the high pressure turbo 243 I think but you can't get this engine combo with AWD. If you want AWD, you are looking at the V70 2.5T AWD, XC70 2.5T AWD (both have a low pressure turbo, 208hp) or the R AWD which comes with a 300hp engine (note sure about the HP numbers, too lazy to look)!<p>Later,<br>

Other changes are included (aluminum mesh-look inlays in lieu of the fake wood, sport seats, slightly bigger front rotors, slightly different suspension setup, standard fog lights, can't remember anything else offhand).<p>Put simply, a manual transmission is available on the NA 2.4, T5, and R variants. Of these, only the R is AWD.
