Urus, which derives its name from the ancestor of modern domestic cattle, is a 5-door SUV that is based on Volkswagen's MLBevo platform that styles the Audi Q7, Audi Q8, Bentley Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne, and Volkswagen Touareg. This is the first SUV that the company has launched in the country.
Its long wheelbase of 3,003 mm and the low seating position of the occupants creates a comfortable and extremely spacious feel.
The Urus is undoubtedly a Lamborghini, taking cues from the LM002 as well as the super sports cars that are fundamental to Lamborghini heritage like the Miura, Murciélago and Countach. The exterior styling depicts traditional design language of the company. The main highlights of the SUV are a large inverted U shaped front grille featuring hexagonal black inserts, an air dam with 4 slats, arrow-shaped LED tail lights and more. The central console sports three TFT screens: one for the instruments, one for infotainment and one for comfort functions including virtual keyboard functions with handwriting recognition.
The Lamborghini Urus is powered by a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 petrol engine that produces 641 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 850 Nm of torque @ 2,250-4,500 rpm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox in an all-wheel-drive setup.
Despite its 2,200 kg kerb weight, Lamborghini claims that it will do 0-100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 305 km/h. The Urus also gets six drive modes - apart from the usual Strada, Sport and Corsa, there's Neve (snow), Terra (off-road) and Sabbia (sand), along with Ego, a fully customisable mode. The SUV rides on 21-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 285/45 ZR21 and 315/40 ZR21 tyres in the front and rear respectively. It comes with ceramic brakes measuring 440 mm in the front and 370 mm in the rear.
