Volvo competing with Audi
My 97 2.8L A4Q sedan has a stickshift, and about 60% of the A4s I've seen
up-close have sticks instead of autos. Car & Driver tested the A4Q Avant
against the Volvo automatic 4WD station-box, and while the Volvo had a
slusher, the A4Q Avant had a stick, I believe. (This is the newest issue.)
Maybe it's not as dark as it seems. Besides, will the S4 next year really
come only with a slush? I hope not.
