The new S60 AWD will use Haldex AWD for sure. The real big question however, will be how Volvo will program the torque split between the front and rear axle. I think that the S60R PCC has 50/50 front to rear bias. It would be nice if Volvo did it that way for the regular S60 models as well. <P>Also, you should be able to get the S60 AWD TDS with no problem. It might be a month or so later when they make their TDS prices official. I hope they bring AWD for all models including the T5. A T5 AWD would be a fantastic car, giving the niche A4 3.0 Quattro a run for its money.<P>-Drew
i have heard 2.4T only. my guess, and I will say that i have thought this through, is for 3 reasons: volvo may be hoping that the 2.4T will be the "volume" variant of the S60s, so offer AWD in that variant and hope for the best. second reason is price - a T-5 with AWD would be way too close for comfort price-wise with the S80 2.9. another reason would be the 2.4T comes in automatic only, an easier way to slip AWD into the S60 mix than the T-5.
