The front and rear suspension of the XF uses coil springs for better ride, handling and control than the V90, 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 XF Sportbrake has a standard automatic rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The V90 doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

The XF’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50.2% to 49.8%) than the V90’s (53.7% to 46.3%). This gives the XF more stable handling and braking.

For better maneuverability, the XF’s turning circle is .6 feet tighter than the V90’s (38.1 feet vs. 38.7 feet).

The XF’s standard easy entry system raises the steering wheel, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The V90 doesn’t offer an easy entry system.
