Lamborghini is a world-famous sports car manufacturer, but their top-selling car is a crossover SUV.
The Lamborghini Urus is designed for those who find two-seater sports cars a little too impractical. It’s taken the luxury car market by storm and boasts the luxury and performance Lamborghini cars are known for.
The Urus has a lot to offer, and many drivers find it worthy of wearing the Lamborghini badge, but is it the best SUV on the road? Read on to find out.
If you zip down the street in a Urus, you’re sure to garner a good bit of attention. The SUV is dripping with Lamborghini swagger with subtle touches that serve as a homage to their other supercars.
The front bumper is decidedly sporty, with plenty of intakes that route air to its engine. You’ll also notice an aggressive hood, which is similar to the one found on the Aventador.
In the car’s side profile, you’ll notice sleek lines that accentuate the Urus’s aggressive design. It also has a low, angular roofline that complements the slight bulge found over the rear wheels.
You’ll find another nod to a different supercar on the rear bumper. The taillights are styled similarly to those found on the Huracan. Quad-exhaust and the Lamborghini badge can also be found on the rear of the vehicle.
The Urus comes with several different paint jobs. In darker colors like Nero Helene black and Astraeus Blu, it can blend in with the other SUVs on the road. Those looking to stand out should opt for vibrant baby blue, green, or yellow.
Lamborghini’s in-your-face styling cues might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s entirely the point. There are no other SUVs that look like the Urus. It’s in a class of its own.
Taking a seat behind the wheel of the Lamborghini SUV is like stepping into the cockpit of a fighter jet. The aggressive styling makes its way to the interior without sacrificing luxury or comfort.
You have a touchscreen gauge cluster and switches that control the car’s various drive settings right at your fingertips. Lamborghini even installed the push-button ignition underneath a red cap for added flair.
You’ll sit on sporty front bucket seats trimmed with plush leather. The back seat comes with either a bench or additional bucket seats. Both options also boast the high-quality leather you’d expect to find on a luxury vehicle.
Those who are looking for the maximum amount of cargo room need to opt for the bench.
The luxurious touches extend far beyond the leather seats. There are plenty of suede and carbon-fiber embellishments throughout the interior.
The Urus is still an SUV at heart and offers a good deal of practicality. You and your passengers will enjoy plenty of storage room thanks to the sizable cubbies that line the doors and a large console that resides between the rows of seats.
The 2022 Lamborghini Urus has plenty of tech that should satisfy even the most discerning buyers. You’ll have two additional touchscreens to use.
The first is a 10-inch infotainment screen. It interfaces seamlessly with industry-standard Apple Car Play and Android Auto. It’s also connected to a 21-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system.
A smaller 8.6-inch screen allows you to manipulate the climate control system. It’s incredibly easy to use, even while driving the car. The days of knobs controlling your heater and air conditioner are long gone, especially when it comes to luxury vehicles.
Lamborghini made its name on the race track, and the Urus continues the tradition of ultra-high performance.
A 4-liter twin-turbo V8 powers the Urus. It makes 650 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, similar to the track-ready Huracan STO supercar and more than the comparable top-of-the-line Porsche Cayenne SUV.
This robust engine allows the Urus to accelerate at an incredible rate. It races to 60 MPH in just over 3 seconds and has a top speed of 190 MPH, faster than many of the sportiest cars in the world. No other SUV can keep pace with the Urus.
An eight-speed ZF automatic transmission mated with paddle shifters transfers that power to the road. It’s quick and responsive and never stutters even as you go through the gears.
You can also choose between six different driving modes. Each slightly alters Uru’s adaptive air suspension and handling capabilities.
Most drivers will want to use the less sporty options to ensure the maximum amount of on-road comfort, but the Corsa mode offers the tightest handling.
The Urus wears some of the largest carbon-ceramic brakes ever installed on a production vehicle. You’ll appreciate them when you need to bring the nearly 5,000-pound machine to a stop.
On the fuel economy front, the Urus will get 12 MPG in city driving, 17 MPG on the highway, and 14 MPG in combined driving.
Lamborghini offers plenty of features to help keep you safe on the road.
You’ll find the expected offerings, like anti-lock brakes and traction control. Its high-tech options include lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, and forward collision mitigation. Roll stability control helps keep the car upright even during the most aggressive cornering maneuvers.
The Urus also has parking sensors on the front and back. You’ll be able to parallel park the car easily without scratching its beautiful paint job.
Blind-spot monitoring and an SOS emergency system round out the extensive list of safety features.
