2020 Lamborghini Urus Overview

Over the past few years, we’ve seen one premium carmaker after another introduce SUVs and crossovers to their lineup. Perhaps the most surprising addition to this increasingly crowded field of expensive, sporty SUVs is the Lamborghini Urus. While it seems straightforward for a luxury carmaker like Rolls-Royce or Jaguar to come out with a similarly appointed SUV, the Urus is a big departure for a company known almost entirely for low-slung supercars. Underneath the flashy Italian exterior, it shares a platform and many parts with the Q7/Q8 from parent company Audi. The Urus only just came out for 2019, so the model goes into 2020 largely unchanged.

The engine is the Audi-sourced twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 making 650 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque and driving all 4 wheels via an 8-speed automatic. The all-wheel-drive (AWD) system sends up to 70 percent of the engine’s power to the front and up to 87 percent to the rear. The Urus weighs nearly 4,900 pounds, but it will nevertheless get to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds. Drivers can switch through up to six driving modes, while wheels range from 21 to 23 inches. The suspension is supported by air springs, and carbon-ceramic disc brakes come standard. Nobody buys an SUV for the fuel economy and nobody buys a Lamborghini for the fuel economy, so it’s unsurprising that the Urus manages just 12 mpg city, 17 highway, and 14 combined.

Standard convenience features on the Urus include keyless ignition, navigation, hands-free tailgate, and an infotainment system and gauge cluster borrowed from Audi. Much of the rest of the interior, thankfully, is standard Lamborghini fare with fighter-jet-inspired design cues and an ignition start button hidden under a bright red flip cover.

Options include ventilated and massaging front seats and a rear-seat entertainment system. Buyers also have the choice of either 2 seats in the back or 3. Cargo space is a decent 22 cubic feet in the Urus, but opting for the rear bucket seats drops this figure by 2 cubes. On the safety front, all Uruses come with adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, and parking sensors.

The Lamborghini Urus shares its basic platform with the Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga, and Audi Q8, but it retains its own personality. For those who want the performance of the Urus in a more understated and cheaper package, the newly introduced Audi RS Q8 is one worth considering.
