What the critics say
The 2019 Lamborghini Urus
Even by supercar standards, Lamborghini’s first SUV in 25 years is an “extraordinary” vehicle. Capable of reaching 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds, this two-and-a-half-ton brute “feels as fast as anything with two seats” and handles like a sports car, too. Its advanced all-wheel-drive system features active torque vectoring and three off-road driving modes. Unfortunately, though, the Urus “just wasn’t fun in the dirt.”
We thought it excelled at off-road driving. More importantly, the Urus is “the first Lamborghini in history that’s a genuine daily driver—a raging bull you can take anywhere, anytime.” It handles errand runs “with insouciant ease,” and don’t worry about unleashing too much power from the 641-hp twin-turbo V-8: The carbon-ceramic brakes are “unquenchable”—as the largest in the world should be.
The plush, practical cabin caters to a new breed of Lambo customer. (“There are even four cup holders—a miracle!”) If you’re intrigued, get in line, because two-thirds of the pre-orders come from Lamborghini newbies, and those early birds have the Urus sold out for the next two years. For those of you high on the list, congratulations: “The guttural roar of the Urus will more than adequately announce your status as the enfant terrible of school pickups.”
