Well, as far as I know these were not offered in RHD markets. So, what do you think?

In 2004, Alfa Romeo introduced 4-wheel drive versions (Torsen C) of the 156 in some markets. Two models were available:

Sportwagon Q4 - normal Sportwagon, with just slightly higher ground clearance.
Crosswagon - more all-terain trim, ground clearance was 1.5 inches higher than in Sportwagon Q4 and it had aluminium door sill protection, along with aluminium insert in the bumpers.

Only offered with 1.9 JTDm 150 bhp and manual 6-speed gearbox.
Sportwagon Q4- top speed 200 km/h (124 mph) and 0-100 km/h in 10.2 seconds
Crosswagon - 192 km/h (119 mph) and 0-100 in 10.5 seconds

Crosswagon:

Yeah I really like the Q4 bit but not the volvo xc height! Do you recon you could retro fit the q4 into the standard. So keeping it lower. Would make the jtd a real weapon!

Well, Sportwagon Q4 is just normal Sportwagon slightly higher.... so I guess it would be easy to fit a Q4 to a normal RHD JTDm 156.

Maybe I could start a business here... To export Q4s to UK :)
