The Haldex AWD system was introduced on the V70 and XC70 in 2003.
Previously, both all-wheel-drive V70s used a viscous coupling to direct
driving torque where it could do the most good. But that setup has been
replaced by an all-electronic system from Haldex, the same system Volvo
uses on the S60 AWD and flagship XC90. According to Volvo, the Haldex
system reacts extremely quickly to wheel slip, routing power to the
wheels with greater traction almost instantaneously: just one-seventh of
a wheel rotation to be exact. The system is fully automatic; no input
from the driver is ever required.
