Lamborghini Urus Is Quite Impressive – But Is It A Real Lambo?

Is there anything that hasn’t been said about the Lamborghini Urus? Apparently, yes – and as you’ll see, not everything is nice and dandy.

CarBuyer was very impressed by the way Lamborghini’s ultra SUV goes. The 641 horsepower SUV is very quick and the transmission provides good upshifts, yet it can also be tamed in congested traffic.

Space at the back is quite generous, and while the Urus comes standard with a rear bench, for an extra £2,600 ($3,383) in the UK, it can be equipped with two individual seats, with a small console between them and a ski hatch. Spend another £3,600 ($4,685) and you’ll keep those sitting at the back occupied with the rear seat entertainment system. The boot capacity doesn’t disappoint either.

Now, there are some things that might irritate the average Urus buyer, and they’re also found in the cabin. The two screens in the center console come from the Audi A8, the key fob is also from an Audi, and there are some cheap plastics that don’t befit a car that starts from $200,000 (£153,670) in the U.S. Also, the black trim might make some feel claustrophobic, but this can be solved by choosing from a plethora of other colors and materials that are available.

In the end, the reviewer is left wondering whether the Urus is a proper Lamborghini or just a moneymaker. Which is a very good question indeed. As for the final verdict as to whether it is worth a small fortune, that’s for you to find out by scrolling down and hitting the play button.

    No, it’s an Audi in a Lambo suit. However, it is pretty fast and certainly looks unique. It’s not horrible-looking like the Bentayga or RR Cullinan.

    • Michelin

      Totally agree!!!!

  • KIND OF INTERESTING HOW IN THE ARTICLE JUST BELOW THE AZTEK BEING CALLED OUT FOR IT UGLINESS, BUT IS THIS MUCH PRETTIER?

    • Matt

      Yes it is. The Urus looks very good in person, the Aztek does not.

    • Mr. EP9

      Pretty isn’t the right word but this is better looking in person. The Aztek is just hideous all around.

  • GobbleUp

    Exterior way overdone and not in a good way like aventador. Interior is fantastic.

  • Paulbe

    No more a Lambo than a Cayenne is a Porsche.

  • benT

    Urus is urea compared to the 2-door sports speedsters

  • SteersUright

    I think it’s almost a Lambo, but not quite. They simply did not go far enough in making it extreme to call it a proper Lambo. It disguises it well but does not truly hide its Audi origins enough. Much in the same way as the Huracan, despite being beautiful, is still too similar to the R8 (& its performance too civilized). The Aventador is truest to form. That said, there isnt enough of the V12 Miura & Contach in any modern Lambo.

  • Bash

    Its a fantastic Audi.

  • Aeromann

    It’s a very expensive Q8.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    An Audi. Not even a Lamborghini tractor. Because those are beautiful https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d1d22368812e47012b45d2e241e2a73f4477eda824d2f6767ddbac832e8747f6.jpg
