The Range Rover Supercharged/Autobiography has active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The XC90 doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Range Rover 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 Range Rover’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The XC90 doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the XC90, the Range Rover HSE/Supercharged/Autobiography offers an optional passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The Range Rover’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.

On a hot day the Range Rover’s driver can lower all the windows from a distance using the keyless remote. The driver of the XC90 can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Range Rover has a standard locking fuel door with a remote release located convenient to the driver. A locking fuel door helps prevent vandalism, such as sugar in the tank and fuel theft. The XC90 doesn’t offer a locking fuel door.

To better shield the driver and front passenger’s vision, the Range Rover HSE/Supercharged/Autobiography has standard dual-element sun visors that can block glare from two directions simultaneously. The XC90 doesn’t offer secondary sun visors.

The Range Rover HSE/Supercharged/Autobiography has standard front air conditioned seats and offers them optionally in the rear. This keeps the passengers comfortable and takes the sting out of hot seats in Summer. The XC90 doesn’t offer air conditioned seats for the second row.

The Range Rover has a standard heated steering wheel to take the chill out of steering on extremely cold Winter days before the vehicle heater warms up. A heated steering wheel costs extra on the XC90.
