"Shocking oversight: no 4WD on V70-- a glaring omission"2.5 starson by oregonviewer
Pros: Better stying than XC70, lower ride = better handling
Cons: No 4WD for US Buyers, but Available in Europe
Summary: European buyers can buy V70 with 40WD, but Volvo not offering it to US buyers. AWful error in judgment by Volvo. To get 4WD, you must buy XC70 and its tarted-up looks. Those ugly white light surrounds in XC70 bumpers make that wagon look like truely ugly Pontiac Aztec (Aztek?). Hope this omission of 4WD for V70 will be corrected by Volvo ASAP, or buyers will turn to Audi or top-of-line Suburu Outbacks to get 4WD.
