 WS 3Ds, because of both the size used here and the fact that they are "performance snows", equals will NOT go anywhere. I will not run a 40 series or lower :eek for winter use.

 

 

Performance Winter / Snow

"For drivers wanting enhanced dry road handling from their winter / snow tires and are willing to trade some snow and ice traction to get it."

 

 

As for spending $10k to be able to drive it in cold weather, I'd sooner buy an old Subie.

I run 35 series performance snows on all of my RS cars without difficulty in the snow.  Until Subie drivers learn to stay out of the left lane, I will not buy one.

I don't know much about Peugeot or Citroen but hope the rumors of them returning to the US come true.  Fantastic, unique cars.

So many cars unavailable in the US.  Land of the free my foot.

Volvo seems to say the Diesel will be an option for the XC90 EV/Hybrid but sheesh...the mileage is a huge drop from the currently successful V60 at 155 mp;g.  And these are for the Diesel options. If they are really only bringing over gas versions, like a 35-40 mpg which is kind of doggie for the high mileage demographics.  Why pay $60K for AWD Volvo vs $64K net for AWD Tesla?

The Volvo XC90 range also includes the D5 twin turbo diesel engine with 225 hp, 470 Nm and best in class fuel consumption of around 47mpg (combined), plus the D4 turbo diesel engine with 190 hp, 400 Nm and a fuel consumption of around 56mpg (combined cycle).

If it came as a TDI it would be my dream ski car. Almost as good as Philpug's.:D

Easy to say, because I can't, but I'd own one of those!
