I think JLR also uses double wishbone tech.
Below is the info for the reference from net:
ouble wishbone suspension provides the engineer more free parameters than some other types do. It is fairly easy to work out the effect of moving each joint, so the kinematics of the suspension can be tuned easily and wheel motion can be optimized. It is also easy to work out the loads that different parts will be subjected to which allows more optimised lightweight parts to be designed. They also provide increasing negative camber gain all the way to full jounce travel, unlike the MacPherson strut, which provides negative camber gain only at the beginning of jounce travel and then reverses into positive camber gain at high jounce amounts.
Conversely, it may take more space and is slightly more complex than other systems like a MacPherson strut. Due to the increased number of components within the suspension set up it takes much longer to service and is heavier than an equivalent MacPherson design. At the other end of the scale, it offers less design choice than the more costly and complex multi-link suspension system.
