From the 'lilting' speach patternes of the narrator, I would guess that he was actually speaking Swedish

Yeah the Volvo clearly was using an "open" differential / transfer case setup, whereas the Legacy (was this a VDC ?) was managing the torque split between the front and rear axles much more effectively. I would be curious to know was sort of Legacy was this... (Did it use a viscous coupling transfercase, or an electrnicly controlled clutch set up ?).
