the "symmetrical AWD" tagline only refers to the fact that it's a full, purpose built AWD system, with no assymetrical driveshaft lengths and no transfer case off the side of the tranny. It has nothing to do with how power is distributed. My car would do roughly the same thing, with a little wheel hop because it doesn't have a fancy clutch-type center diff, but rather a lowly (and rather weak) viscous center.

I thought the wet weather driving comparison was misleading since it just take a little extra steering input to make the volvo look really bad. I liked the AWD comparisons though. You can see though that the subaru's were permitted a bit of a roll on the roller test which is also a bit unfair.

I think it's likely they simply trashed the AWD system on that Evo.
