The Lamborghini Urus was the first real SUV made by Lamborghini. It came out early in 2019, and since then, it has proven to be one of Lamborghinis favorite sellers. Since Lamborghini made a supercar SUV, they also encouraged a new wave of ultra luxury or sport supercars including the Bently Bentayaga, the Rolls Royce Cullinan, the Aston Martin DBX, and the new Ferrari FUV that is yet to be unveiled. Lamborghini has shown that making an SUV is essential, selling over 10,000 cars in under two years, but is the Lamborghini Urus really worth it?
The Lamborghini Urus has a starting price of just over $207,000. It comes stock with four to five seats, 641hp, and a top speed of 190mph. As you may have heard, the Lamborghini Urus sits on the same platform as the Audi Q7. Audi and Lamborghini worked together to make this platform, but used it for completely different purposes. Audi uses it for more of a luxury style day to day driving, while Lamorghini has turned it into a sports car. Essentially, the Lamborghini Urus and the Audi Q7 have the same shape and form, it’s just that one looks more sporty than the other.
The Audi Q7 is the real reason why I have questioned the Lamborghini Urus. The Audi Q7 can be optioned to cost around $70,000, has 250hp, and is relatively more usable. Sure it does not contain the same features in offroading as the Lamborghini, but it is much more affordable. The Lamborghini Urus is essentially just an Audi badged as a Lamborghini, kind of like the 2020 Toyota Supra is BMW M5 badged Toyota with slightly different body shape.
However, my opinion on this car is that it is just amazing. Sure cost wise it does not make much sense, but the numbers it is boasting is very impressive for a car meant to be used in day to day driving. Plus, it is one of the very few sports cars that offer enough space for you and your family. On top of this, the customizations are literally unimaginable. You can pick the type of letters, embroidered or stitched logos, and many other things.
In conclusion, the Lamborghini Urus is quite an impressive car. Sure its distant relative, The Audi Q7 is cheaper, but you will not be able to get the same level of thrill in it.
