Volvo S70 As A Winter Car?

Forum member volvooh wonders if a front-wheel drive S70 will be the same or better than a front-wheel drive V70, given the same years. “We are considering an S70 as a winter driver. We have V70 wagon (FWD)- its okay in the snow but far from being a billy goat. I was wondering how an S70 (FWD) would perform. I have always attributed the light body weight and elongated frame on the V70 to is lack of winter handling.”
