The 2017 Lamborghini Urus is the SUV model with which Lamborghini will enter this market segment, and it was a big surprise when it was announced few years ago. In 2003, the largest news in the car industry was brand-new SUV manufactured by Porsche. It was the very first SUV produced by this automaker, and it came unexpectedly.
Model delivered by German sports car maker hasn’t become a high-flyer as it was predicted but it was surely profitable for the company, later on, it managed to attract a significantly larger number of buyers. This year we are going to have a similar situation but with another carmaker. Lamborghini decided to present new SUV under the name of 2017 Lamborghini Urus. If you haven’t heard of this car, don’t bother, you can read everything you need to know in this review.
Urus is quite an unusual name for a car, and it comes from one extinct species similar to a cow, which the last member died in the 17th century. As a matter of fact, these animals were the largest and heaviest in the family. Even though the 2017 Lamborghini Urus won’t be the biggest SUV on the market, it will surely be one of the most powerful. Its performances are quite astonishing. Lamborghini put a lot of effort throughout the years in order to create a decent SUV. If you are interested how this car is going to look like, then check this review and pictures below.
As you can see in the pictures, new 2017 Lamborghini Urus looks quite amazing. It is coming with an exceptional design and astonishing interior. However, the best thing is hidden under the bonnet. We’re sure that Urus will have at least one engine option, the 4.0-liter twin-boosted eight-cylinder. This unit is coming with the insane figures since it is estimated this powerplant can deliver 600 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque. These are just approximate numbers, but we believe they won’t be significantly lower. There is no SUV with similar characteristics on the market that can generate so much power.
With such engine fuel economy could be a problem, just one note about this, we know that buyers of this monster will not care a lot about this, but speed and velocity are definitely not. The 2017 Lamborghini Urus can reach 328 km/h (205mph), and it goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in four seconds. However, please don’t take this information to the bank since it hasn’t been confirmed yet. Just like it was expected Lamborghini decided to use a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. All-wheel drive is the only option and will use special traction control program. With this system ride is going to be quite smooth. There is still a lot of time before the launching thus we may see one more engine unit.
The design is just amazing and can’t be compared to any modern car. First of all, you can notice very unusual grill at the front. Grille is divided into three different parts and is something new in the automotive world. The entire body is sleek and even it offers decent height for an SUV, it is clear that its main purpose is speed. Headlights are using LED technology, but that has become standard when it comes to Lamborghini vehicles. At the rear part, you can see four exhaust pipes divided into two groups pronouncing power and sportiness of this luxury model. Generally, the 2017 Lamborghini Urus is one of a kind and comes with plenty of unique features.
Interior is as exceptional as the exterior, and it is quite luxurious. According to some rumors, Urus is going to have more than four seats, but that is yet to be confirmed. Many think this car’s cabin is going to share a lot with Audi Q7, but Urus will have more room for cargo. Similarities with Aventador and other supercars in Lamborghini lineup will be evident. We hope Lamborghini will release more details about the interior soon.
2017 Lamborghini Urus Price
It seems that the 2017 Lamborghini Urus will come to the market before 2017, in the last quarter of 2016. This is one of the most amazing cars we had a chance to write about, but everything has its price. New Urus won’t cost under $210,000. Too much or not it is up to you to decide. Exclusivity and performances need to be paid; it will be interesting to compare it with models like Bentley Bentayga and similar luxury SUV’s.
