The race to get SUV’S on the market is getting more and more interesting everyday. SUV’S are becoming more and more popular and more brands are competing to get theirs in front of customers as quick as they can. Now comes the sports car companies and they are creating their own SUV’S that may or may not be welcomed.
5] Lamborghini have created their new Lamborghini Urus, a name which does not come across well when first heard. Looking at it initially it does not look that appealing and looks more on the chunky side. It has a sharp sweeping bonnet with these narrow headlights and sporty grille that make the car look like a transformer. The sweeping roof that leads down to the rear leaves little room for the rear view window and makes it look like you will have a tough time looking out the back. The crisp, narrow, connected headlights look decent and the twin exhausts look very sporty. Overall the design is not that great in my opinion.
4] The Lamborghini Urus interior has state-of-the-art technology with luxurious materials decorating the seats and trims. There are three TFT screens (one for the instruments, one for infotainment and one for comfort functions, including virtual keyboard feature with hand-writing recognition) that gives you everything you need at your fingertips, making your ride enjoyable and superior. The dashboard architecture follows the “Y” theme inspired by iconic Lamborghini models. The interior can be customised to suit you and your needs – they can be more elegant or sporty, through the selection of different kinds of colours and materials. Urus features a large range of options that can really enhance your driving experience, with multiple souls converging to create a unique vehicle. Lamborghini Urus is a five-seater super sports car.
3] Lamborghini Urus integrates a V8 bi-turbo engine with a maximum power output of 478 kW / 650 HP, the best weight-to-power ratio on the SUV market. The 8-gear automatic transmission, together with the 4-wheel drive system with active torque vectoring, enable you to really pick up speed around corners and the car handles exceptionally well even at high speeds. What really makes Urus great is the electronic platform that controls the systems and transforms its dynamic behaviour. The ANIMA Selector is the secret of Lamborghini driving dynamics, the key command to choose the desired setup. The vehicle adapts according to the driving mode selected. There are three on-road modes: STRADA for easiness of driving, comfort and safety; SPORT for agility, responsiveness and fun to drive; CORSA for precision and maximum performance. The three off-road modes are: NEVE ensures ease and safety even on slippery surfaces; TERRA ensures comfort and ease in off-road conditions; SABBIA is perfect for sandy surfaces. The EGO mode enables the driver to redefine the vehicle’s dynamics according to preferences and needs in terms of steering, suspension and traction.
2] On 4 December 2017, the car was unveiled at Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese headquarters. Production began in February 2018 with plans to build 1000 units in the first year of production, and 3500 in 2019.
