The Lamborghini Urus is everything we hoped it to be

06 December 2017

Lamborghini's built something that's basically a posh take on the Nissan Qashqai or any or the other billion chunky "off road" SUVs out there waiting where cars aren't supposed to wait, in the form of the Lamborghini Urus.

But this is no standard SUV; it's an SSUV, or Super Sport Utility Vehicle according to Lamborghini, as the company's not really known for making non-super cars and this can do almost 190 miles per hour. The manufacturer is aiming to double its production with 7000 cars per year and this will be achieved with the new SUV in the company's lineup. The sharp creases, deep cuts, and swooping roofline altogether reflects that the SUV is a mean machine.

No surprise is that the Lamborghini Urus touches the crown of the now most powerful production SUV.

The Lamborghini Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine capable of up to 650 horsepower, supported by an eight-speed automatic transmission. It can hit 60 miles per hour in less than 3.6 seconds, and its top speed is 189 miles per hour. the standard model includes adaptive air suspension and active roll stabilization as well as carbon ceramic brakes. Comparing the Urus with the Huracan Performante, the SUV comes very close to matching the sports auto. There is also a high end infotainment system and a Bang & Olfusen sound system.

Comfort features include 12-way adjustable heated driver and front passenger seats as standard, with an option of an 18-way adjustable seat. As for cargo, the rear bench seat can be lowered to substantially extend the trunk space from 616 to 1,596 litres.

Following Lamborghini's tradition of bovine-related names, the Urus is named after a wild ancestor of domestic cattle.

The Lamborghini Urus will be available in spring 2018, with a starting price tag of about £150,890.

The SUV "allows you to travel on any terrain: on road, off road, on ice but also on sand dunes", said Lamborghini research and development director Maurizio Reggiani, suggesting it will be the fastest SUV on the market.
