I was just looking through the Volvo International Website and found this! It is the Volvo V70 2.4T AWD. Since when did Volvo start producing a 2nd generation V70 2.4T AWD non XC? I have never seen this before! It comes with 3 different transmission choices as well, a five-speed manual, five-speed adaptive automatic, or five-speed adaptive Geartronic. I wonder if and when they are going to bring this to the United States? I think that it would sell pretty good actually, for those who just need AWD and not the extra's of the V70 XC.<P> <IMG SRC="http://sc2.m.volvocars.se/bilder/pp/newv70/main/awd/bigawd.jpg"> <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>In the all-wheel drive Volvo V70 AWD, the power is distributed between the wheels as circumstances require. If you accelerate or corner so that the rear wheels have a better grip than the front ones, more power goes to the rear wheels. The result is outstanding stability and road-holding on all surfaces. Getting started and getting around in slippery conditions present no difficulty. Volvo’s TRACS anti-spin system makes sure that the wheel with the best grip gets the most power. The engine is a 200-bhp turbo with high torque and good low-rev response.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>-Drew

the 2.4T AWD will not be brought to the US. Volvo already tried that back in '97 or '98 and nobody bought that car. The problem was pricing. people shopped that car and the XC and went with the XC because it really wasn't much more.
