MHH International: First Look At The Lamborghini Urus

The jury remains constantly out on the name of this car which fails to capture any Italian magic or flair but, after all, it is just a name. The Lamborghini Urus, considered to be the first Super Sport Utility Vehicle (SSUV), although don’t let Bentley hear you say it, creates yet another new niche in the luxury segment. To be fair, it is astonishingly good for such a large vehicle, offering power, performance and excellent driving dynamics on and off road.

The Sports Utility Vehicle has conquered all across the planet but the Urus does elevate the SUV to a premium level not foreseen just a few years ago. It is a true Lamborghini in terms of design, performance and driving dynamics as well as being eminently drivable on a day to day basis in a range of environments.

The Car

 

The Lamborghini Urus is as much a luxury SUV as it is the most powerful, with a super sports car dynamism to be enjoyed by both driver and passengers. It offers a low-line coupé styling with a commanding road position. The performance belies the surprisingly comfortable ride and higher ground clearance and the luxurious interior is packed as we would expect with with all the latest technologies, too numerous to list here, all lined with lovely leather.

 

The Urus provides easy, relaxed driving in the city, maximum comfort during long journeys yet still manages to deliver thrilling super sports car dynamics on the road and even on a track! Despite this the Italian brand have managed to successfully pull off the job of delivering versatile off-road abilities in a range of rough terrain environments. This car has a dual personality. It can be driver-specified to be as sporty or as elegant as the owner wishes, and can equally be used for a run to the shopping mall or provide an exhilarating super sports experience on the open road.

Driving

 

Despite early misgivings the Urus fits perfectly within the Lamborghini family as a high performance car. This Italian stallion features a 4.0L V8 twin-turbo engine delivering 648bhp at 6,000rpm and a mighty 850Nm of maximum torque at 2,250rpm. The car accelerates from 0-62mph (100 km/h) in 3.6 seconds making it the fastest SUV available.

 

There are six drive modes: Street, Sport, Track (in which the car lowers by 15mm) and three off-road modes in which the body rises by 40mm. The driver can effectively choose how he or she wants the car configured at the push of a button by selecting performance, handling, comfort, steering weight and off-road settings to suit. In regular street mode the Urus is great on good surfaces, albeit a bit fidgety on bad ones, this being one of the downsides of the huge wheels. There’s aural treats too for the keen driver as well although given this is a luxury car much of that noise is perhaps artificially induced.

 

This is the ideal car for drivers who like their sports cars very big and chunky. It shouldn’t work but it very much does. Deep pockets needed though because here in the UK the Lamborghini Urus costs the thick end of £159,000. It’s quite something though.
