For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the V90 Cross Country (255/60R18 vs. 235/50R19). The F-Pace SVR’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the V90 Cross Country (F:265/45R21 & R:295/40R21 vs. 245/45R20).

The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S/Portfolio’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the V90 Cross Country’s optional 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace SVR has standard 21-inch wheels. The V90 Cross Country’s largest wheels are only 20-inches.

The F-Pace offers an optional full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the V90 Cross Country; it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

The front and rear suspension of the F-Pace uses coil springs for better ride, handling and control than the V90 Cross Country, which uses transverse leafs springs in the rear. Coil springs compress more progressively and offer more suspension travel for a smoother ride with less bottoming out.

The F-Pace S handles at .88 G’s, while the V90 Cross Country T6 pulls only .87 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The F-Pace SVR executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.4 seconds quicker than the V90 Cross Country T6 (25 seconds @ .77 average G’s vs. 26.4 seconds @ .68 average G’s).

The Jaguar F-Pace may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs up to about 500 pounds less than the Volvo V90 Cross Country.

The F-Pace is 8.1 inches shorter than the V90 Cross Country, making the F-Pace easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The engine in the F-Pace is mounted longitudinally (North-South), instead of sideways, as in the V90 Cross Country. This makes it easier to service and maintain, because the accessory belts are in front.

The F-Pace (except Base)’s standard easy entry system raises the steering wheel when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The V90 Cross Country doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

The F-Pace will cost the buyer less in the long run because of its superior resale value. The IntelliChoice estimates that the F-Pace will retain 42.87% to 50.89% of its original price after five years, while the V90 Cross Country only retains 39.42% to 39.94%.
