These two cars both have the sleek look of powerful luxury sedans. But when you go beyond looks alone, you'll see that the Volvo S90 gives you better features, even on the exterior.

2020 Volvo S90 vs 2020 Jaguar XF Sedan: Safety

Volvo has a long and storied history of safety. From creating the first three-point seatbelt to many modern safety features of today, you can always trust Volvo to be on the leading edge. This means that you'll get standard features like adaptive cruise control in the Volvo S90; this feature is an available upgrade only in the Jaguar XF. But the S90 also has some pretty unique safety features that aren't available at all in the Jaguar XF Sedan. One such feature is Volvo Cars' Run-off road Mitigation. If you're traveling between 40 and 86 miles per hour and your Volvo detects that you're in danger of running off the road, it can use steering and braking to direct your vehicle and keep you safely on the road.
