The I-Pace’s electric motors produce 144 more horsepower (394 vs. 250) and 254 lbs.-ft. more torque (512 vs. 258) than the XC90 T5’s standard 2.0 turbo 4-cylinder. The I-Pace’s electric motors produce 78 more horsepower (394 vs. 316) and 217 lbs.-ft. more torque (512 vs. 295) than the XC90 T6’s standard 2.0 turbo/supercharged 4-cylinder. The I-Pace’s electric motors produce 40 lbs.-ft. more torque (512 vs. 472) than the XC90 T8’s standard 2.0 turbo/supercharged 4-cylinder hybrid.

The front and rear suspension of the I-Pace uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the XC90, which uses coil springs in front and transverse leafs springs in the rear. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The I-Pace HSE handles at .90 G’s, while the XC90 T6 AWD pulls only .77 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The I-Pace HSE executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 2 seconds quicker than the XC90 T6 AWD (24.8 seconds @ .77 average G’s vs. 26.8 seconds @ .65 average G’s).

The I-Pace is 10.7 inches shorter than the XC90, making the I-Pace easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The I-Pace is 8.6 inches shorter in height than the XC90, making the I-Pace much easier to wash and garage and drive (lower center of gravity).

The design of the Jaguar I-Pace amounts to more than styling. The I-Pace has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .29 Cd. That is significantly lower than the XC90 (.33) and many sports cars. A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the I-Pace get better fuel mileage.

The front grille of the I-Pace uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The XC90 doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

Unlike the driver-only memory seat and mirrors in the XC90, the I-Pace offers an optional driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The I-Pace’s front and rear power windows all open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The XC90’s rear power window switches have to be held the entire time to open or close them fully.
