Just going through some pretty bad weather here in the UK with snow and freezing temperatures causing absolute chaos. Even the Chunnal Eurostar has been affected! Problem is we don’t get this sort of weather every year so when it hits it catches everybody out. Lots of rear wheel drive BMWs & Mercs getting stuck and having to be abandoned. ….but my new XC60 D5 ADW has been great with no problems at all. Even when putting two nearside wheels into the deep snow there’s plenty of traction from the other two and keeps me going when most over cars had slid to a halt. The way the drive is transmitted to each wheel must be quite sophisticated as I’ve had no problems at all despite only having the standard road tyres. Heater warms up very quickly which is a bit unusual for a diesel, perhaps there also a built in electric heater? Heated seats are great too but lowest setting is warm enough. The novelty has worn off and I’ve had enough of the snow now and just looking forward to everything thawing out so I can get the hose out and give my Volvo a good wash!
