Volvo and Jaguar are two of the top car brands in the market, known for their extensive list of models on offer. Speaking of which, the 2019 Jaguar XJ and the 2019 Volvo S90 are two top ranked models in the market that we are going to compare in this post.

Design & Style

The 2019 Jaguar XJ can seat up to 5 people, with comfortable leather seats that come standard with ventilating and heating functionality. Limited headroom and narrow front seats make it less accommodating for large travelers. The interior is moderately charming with elegant design and quality leathers on offer.

The 2019 Volvo S90 is a 5-seater sedan with extremely comfortable seats on offer. You can feel the comfort and stability, while on an extended trip. Unlike other rivals, there's generous amount of legroom and headroom in both the rows. The cabin has a minimalist design, and most surfaces are trimmed with quality materials such as soft-touch plastics, leather, brushed metal and wood.

Technology & Safety

Even with all the enhancements, the 2019 Jaguar XJ is not as upgraded as you would expect. The InControl Touch Pro infotainment system has an outdated appearance and has a complicated interface. It does not come standard with Apple CarPlay smartphone integration. Other key features include Wi-Fi hot spot, 20-speaker surround sound system and 10-inch screen. Standard safety features include active blind spot assist, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control.

On the other hand, the S90 comes standard with Sensus infotainment system, featuring a 10-speaker stereo, USB port, Bluetooth, HD radio and navigation. There are physical buttons and knobs to make it user friendly. With slick graphics and responsive touch screen, there are plenty of standard features include Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, dual-zone automatic climate control and push-button start. Standard safety features include rearview camera, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring.


The 2019 Jaguar XJ comes standard with a 6-cylinder engine that moves the car quickly but does not allow smooth acceleration. For smoother transition, you may have to opt for higher trims. The Volvo S90 is blessed with a superior engine that offers a power output of 316-HP. All-wheel drive and automatic transmission come standard.

The Bottom Line

The Volvo S90 is a luxury car that exudes elegance and feels lighter than most rivals. With cutting-edge technology and extravagant interiors, S90 has very few competitors in the market. XJ can't measure up to the features offered by Volvo S90, although it carries the brand value of a luxury car brand.
