After you register, you can read the whole article.<P>They seemed to like it on their first impression:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>We spent a long day driving XC90s on twisting two-lanes and found it to be surprisingly tight for such a large SUV. Body roll was nicely controlled, and very little road noise crept into the cabin. It was actually fun, in an SUV sort of way.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>-Drew

I had to beg and scream to get in the one in NY to take the pictures that I did. I had to go over 4 peoples heads to do it. 99% of Volvo retailer personal have yet to see it and you get to drive one, we have to represent the product and we get the scraps. Sorry, this isn't directed at you personally. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">[/rant off] <BR><P>

Hey Phil, actually it's not uncommon or unique to Volvo. They typically release cars to the press first, so that they have plenty of time to get in the print (slower to market) publications. Most of the articles that originate from this press intro will hit the major mags by Sept/Oct which is right before the car hits market. <P>Believe it or not, Swedespeed is a recognized member of the press in Volvo's eyes. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> Thus, we get to go to the press intro.<P>
