Lamborghini Urus is a four-wheel drive premium crossover of a full-size niche and the “firstborn of this type of car” in the history of the Italian company. Italians call the car SSUV.
This car combines good functionality, practicality of off-road model, which is suitable for daily use. There are also “combat features” inherent in powerful Lamborghini cars. The whole model range is Lamborghini.
The international premiere of the five-door event took place on 4 December 2017, during a special event prepared in Sant’Agata Bolognese. However, for the first time the world community was able to get acquainted with this machine in April 2014 as a conceptual model. Italians call this novelty the most powerful, the fastest and the fastest among “classmates”.
Reviews are only excellent, because under the hood there is a 650-horsepower power plant operating with high-performance equipment. Not so long ago, Lamborghini Company officially presented a new crossover for Russian buyers.
Lamborghini Urus was already able to make a complete sensation on the Russian market in 2018, so the vehicle was purchased on advance orders. Not all motorists will be able to buy an Italian-made sports SUV because of the numerous orders.
The appearance of the new serial version of the Lamborghini Urus 2019 SUV demonstrates the family characteristics of the company’s sports cars. For example, this includes beveled wheel arches and the front of the car. However, there are interesting nuances, because the new model of Lamborghini Urus 2019 is the first 4-door car in the last 24 years, which has a front-motor position.
The front area of the Italian SUV turned out to be expressive. On the sides you can see a stylish, narrow LED-type optics, which is usually installed in sports cars. Any headlamp is equipped with five LED blocks. Apply Y-shaped LED DXO, which at the same time are dynamic direction indicators.
Optical elements were decided to be based on the latest technologies. They received a traffic-controlled control, automatic high beam and dipped beam switching, and full control of the brightness level and beam range. In the middle, between the headlamps, you can see a whole part of the bumper and the company’s nameplate.
The hood, together with the concave lines exactly suggest that we are facing a sports car of the famous company. As for the front bumper and everything that is placed in the lower part of the optics, here appeared full new forms. The designers wanted to divide the Urus 2018 radiator grille into several parts.
All of them are implemented in a rhombus-shaped style. The central part is decorated with six massive cells, and in the center the specialists of the Italian company have placed the front view camera, radar and sensor. The side area of the bumper is crowned with Y-type inserts and similar inserts, which had a positive impact not only on the appearance of the Lamborghini Urus 2019, but also on its aerodynamic part.
The bottom part of a front bumper in parallel possesses a figure and contour of the sports car, and also corresponds to actual style of a crossover. In addition, we decided to decorate the bottom with a splitter, which received 3 holes. Slightly above it is possible to notice a black insert of V-shaped type from plastic for fastening of number plates and towing hooks.
The windshield of the dynamic machine in the body of the crossover is very similar to the glass of sports vehicles. At the top, the central part possesses a salon mirror which has the whole arsenal of systems of safety and tracking where also the base video-recording belongs. The side part of the new version of Lamborghini Urus 2019 was made quite unusual.
The SUV does not look like a popular sports car of the Italian company. As for the arches of the front and rear wheels, they were made in a strict, sharp shape. You can see a black plastic trim. From the front arches to the rear feet, the Lamborghini group of designers stretched a special curved line that divides the car into upper and lower parts, and also improves the dynamic component of the Lamborghini Urus 2019 SUV.
The front wings of the fast SUV are equipped with triangular holes for aerodynamics and powertrain blowing. There is a characteristic inscription on the model. The door handles are not standard. By their type and form factor they are of classical type, but they are located slightly lower than the middle line of the body.
The lower part of the crossover is crowned with a black plastic trim, as well as a chrome strip. The upper side of the vehicle was made in the style of the German SUV BMW X6. The basic front doors, as well as the tilted aft part received reduced rear windows.
The clearance height of the new Urus 2019 Lamborghini can vary between 158 and 248 millimetres.
The exterior mirrors installed on the sides received a completely new look. They were installed in the corner of the front door, not on the door body, as was the case with other Lamborghini sports cars. As standard, the exterior mirrors have strict shapes. The upper part was painted in the body color of the sport crossover, and the lower part was painted in black glossy color.
If to speak for the list of electronic stuffings in mirrors of Urus, it has function of heating, an electric drive for adjustment, and also automatics for a folding. The side of the new Lamborghini Urus 2019 is equipped with a number of noticeable lines, which are inherent to sports cars.
Decorate the appearance of the Italian SUV 22 – or 23-inch “rollers”, which received an original new design. The potential buyer can buy a car with any of 6 variants of brake calipers painting. Arsenal of paints possesses:
Speaking of the back of the Uruss, it’s not very similar to existing machines. As mentioned above, the engineering staff decided to place the power plant in the front of the machine. The rear part has clear LED stops with Y-shaped dimensions.
The standard design of the “Italian” has half of the optics located on the lid of the luggage compartment, and the remaining small part of the optics is placed on the body of the vehicle. Separately, it is necessary to say about the nameplate of the Italian company, knocked out with ordinary letters on the black chrome.
The upper compartment of the luggage cover of Lamborghini Urus 2019 was decorated with a massive LED foot repeater and anti-wing. An additional spoiler was placed on the end of the luggage cover. The rear window was borrowed from Lamborghini sports cars, with some modifications. In general, the width of the rear window is sufficient to provide a comfortable view at any speed.
The whole lower part of the stern optics eloquently testifies to the sports features of the SUV. The stern has curved shapes, a special place for number plates, as well as a rear camera. At the corners of the bumpers there were developed 2 auxiliary aerodynamic holes. The lower edge of the rear bumper is equipped with a list of sports equipment: a large, pronounced diffuser, two paired exhaust pipes and elongated LED fog lights.
In general, the stern area of the new crossover Lamborghini Urus looks serious, sporty, modern and at the same time stylish. As for the color of the exterior of the car, it fits perfectly into the sports tendencies, as it has a black, yellow, as well as white body color. Also the car can be bought with a shade of metallic. The car is available in:
- Dark blue;
- Dark grey;
- Light grey;
- Light blue;
- Light red.
As a separate option, a potential buyer can purchase a car by choosing the body colour of his choice. Interestingly, even the most unpredictable shades are also allowed, which has a negative impact on the price list of the new car. On the roof of an expensive SUV there is a panorama even in the basic version. In addition, it is possible to buy roof rails for luggage compartment made of black and to install the tinting of the side rear windows.
It is also clear from the lines and shape of the roof that the model is sporty. The potential buyer will be pleased with the strict and directed lines, which perfectly affect the dynamism of the vehicle. The aft part of the roof is crowned with an antenna, which has received the shape of a shark fin.
The inside of the new Lamborghini car is unlike any other vehicle. The design staff has designed the salon, which looks unusual and magnificent. There is only a front panel, where one part has a touch screen control, and the other is similar to the dashboard of the aircraft.
You can start with the Lamborghini Urus 2019 torpedo. Although it was made using a rough shape, where strict lines prevail, it looks just great. It seems that another appearance of the cabin would not be so good for such a crossover with such ambitions. Deflectors on the front panel have a hexagonal shape, mesh inserts inside.
Two of the 4 graceful ducts are located in the center, and the rest are installed on the sides. A similar hexagonal shape fits perfectly under the Full HD TFT screen “multimedia”, installed in the center. A group of engineers was able to put everything in it that can only be imagined. There is GPS, mobile phone, wireless Internet and Wi-Fi access points.
Under the screen there is a control panel for some Italian SUV security systems, as well as an emergency parking key. And there is one unique solution – all the keys were sunk, so accidental pressing them is excluded. Going from the control panel further pleasant emotions are only added. The tunnel is equipped with a touchscreen display of a 4-zone climate system with a full automatic mode.
Control keys turned out to be massive, so it is obviously impossible to miss, despite the high speed (as to go slowly on such a car is almost impossible). It is very nice that you can control the degree of heating and cooling of chairs. Nearby you can see the only mechanical lever for setting up external mirrors.
If necessary, the display of the climate system Lamborghini Urus 2019 turns into a touch-type keyboard, which allows you to type in text or search the Internet for necessary information. It is necessary to tell at once that the design department has thought up many interesting nuances and elements in salon of new jeep Lamborghini Urus.
The handle of automatic box switching, movement mode selector and choice of all-wheel drive system is unusual. Together they are similar to the levers of control in an airplane. The automatic gearbox handle is placed in the center and the motor Start/Stop button is installed on it (highlighted with red plastic).
On the right side there is the all-wheel-drive adjustment knob, ECO mode selection and other adjustments that increase the comfort level inside the vehicle. On the left side you can see the travel mode switch, which has 6 presets to choose from. Near the front armrests there is an electromechanical type parking brake, a mountain start aid system and external mirror settings.
There’s a couple of cupholders on the right. The armrest of Lamborghini Urus 2019 installed in front was divided into 2 areas. Any part of them serves its own purpose. Inside the armrest you will be pleased to find a rechargeable USB, 12-volt socket and wireless charging for your phone. To increase the comfort level, the lower part is equipped with a compartment that supports the function of heating and cooling, to store drinks.
Almost everything is amazing. You want to touch the driver’s seat. Almost immediately you can see the modern dashboard based on the color display. The dashboard is followed by a solid colour projection screen. According to the time of day, this display is able to change the brightness and type of backlighting, so as not to distract the driver.
If necessary, it can be easily set up or switched off. The dashboard of the new crossover has turned out to be peculiar and a bit similar to the “dashboard” of earlier Lamborghini vehicles. The screen is set up in terms of lighting and placement of devices. On each side of the screen there are 2 small colored “screens”, which display the fuel level and the temperature of the power unit.
A familiar panel for monitoring individual Lamborghini Urus 2019 systems, direction indicators and seatbelt monitoring is installed at the top of the display. The steering wheel is actually sporty, practical and stylish. It has a beveled rim at the bottom and has a good grip on the side in the form of protrusions. The central part is dedicated to the nameplate of the company, and the two side needles are equipped with several control buttons.
At the wheel the engineering staff of the company has placed 2 petals for switching speeds, as well as levers for controlling the direction indicators, adaptive “cruise” and several other functions of the new SUV. In a base complete set “wheel” has a pleasant covering which includes a qualitative skin.
However, if necessary, the potential buyer can buy a separate option to purchase the rudder cover with alcantara or perforated leather. The steering wheel itself can be adjusted in height as well as depth thanks to the electric drive. There are no mechanical adjustments in this vehicle.
As for the interior cladding, it is rich and has the highest quality materials. The front seats are sporty in style and have excellent side support. The “lucky ones” sitting in front are allowed to adjust the seats to their own needs. The headrest height and backrest depth can be adjusted to suit your needs. The second row of Lamborghini Urus 2019 seats depends on the purchased version.
As standard, the rear row of seats can comfortably accommodate three people, but a version for 2 passengers with a central console can be installed. The standard 2nd row of the Italian crossover is a bit similar to the interior of the German SUV X6. There is already a familiar in-depth landing of the 2 main passengers and a more elevated landing for the 3rd person sitting in the center.
Double rear seat has a central panel, designed for climate control, music system. There is also a small compartment for trifling, recharging phones and two cup holders. The end of the backrest has a lid that allows access to the trunk. However, based on the feedback from the owners of Lamborghini Urus 2019, this lid was roughly made, and it is strong enough to be seen. It is fixed to a simple latch, which looks cheap, as for a car of this level.
As an optional extra, you can buy a couple of tablets that are mounted on the front seat backrests. Speaking for the cladding, it is worth mentioning the usual solid pattern or embroidered square inserts. The interior is covered with leather, perforated leather or alcantara.
Similar inserts and claddings were used for door panels. The potential buyer will be pleased with a decent arsenal of shades for the interior. Black leather is combined with black or brown alcantara. There is also a presence:
In addition to the colors of the interior, the customer can choose from carbon, wood or polished aluminum inserts. Regardless of the direction of the vehicle towards the crossovers, the interior of the Lamborghini Urus has a sporty style. In addition, the SUV is equipped with a high level of practicality.
It has the correct shape of a luggage compartment. The normal condition has received volume of 616 litres (the four-seat layout has loading volume of 574 l). If necessary, the rear seats can be folded in three parts, which will provide 1,596 liters of useful space, as well as a flat floor.
The Italian crossover Lamborghini Urus is an eight-cylinder, gasoline, 4.0-liter power pack with a V-shaped architecture and two Twin-Scroll turbochargers in the collapse of the block. There is a direct fuel injection, 32-valve gas distribution mechanism and variable gas distribution phases.
All this allows the engine to deliver 650 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque. In order to save “fuel appetite”, the specialists of the company have provided the possibility of switching off half of the cylinders, if there is a small load. The Lamborghini Urus 2019 hard surface shows stunning performance. To reach a speed mark of 100 kilometers per hour, the SUV needs only 3.6 seconds.
After another 9.2 seconds the car accelerates to 200 kilometers per hour. The maximum speed is limited to 305 kilometres per hour. Despite such a capacity, the power unit “Italian” is quite economical, at least, “on paper”.
The manufacturer claims that the engine “eats” about 12.3 liters of high-octane gasoline every hundred kilometers. It is also worth understanding that the fastest crossover Urus is in the list of machines with internal combustion engine, as in general the fastest serial crossover in the world – Tesla Model X.
The managers of the company Lamborghini said that in 2019, perhaps a hybrid power plant will appear.
The powerful four-litre power unit works with the ZF 8-band automatic transmission, which has a torque converter in its arsenal. The “Italian” is equipped with all-wheel drive. There is also a differential Torsen and active rear differential. In a normal situation, the torque is divided between the wheels in the proportion of 40/60, but, when necessary, the front wheels can move away up to 70 percent of the traction, and on the rear up to 87.
A special feature of the transmission is Anima’s electronic setting change system, which includes 6 presets. Each of them is designed to maximise engine and suspension performance in a variety of road conditions. Strada mode is basic and provides the best balance of controllability, comfort and driving comfort.
Sport – designed for fast driving on public roads. The Corsa pre-installation is racing and provides the best controllability and full performance from the powertrain. The Terra mode is the basic off-road mode, in which the suspension slightly lifts the car to overcome off-road conditions. Transmission and engine operation in this mode is adjusted to increase torque.
The penultimate mode is called Sabbia. It represents a unique off-road preset that allows you to move boldly across the sand. Most likely, it was made for the most important buyers from the Middle East, because dune riding is a traditional entertainment there.
The last mode was called Neve. It is “snowy”, because with its help, the vehicle feels great not only on snowy ground, coping with snowdrifts, the height of which can reach half a meter, but also on slippery ice.
Interestingly, the name of the ANIMA system is translated from Italian as a soul. It only adds romanticism to the perception of the image of a perfect crossover that does not require additional jewelry.
As a basis the Italians decided to use a modular platform MKB evo, which implies a longitudinal-oriented power plant. The power structure of the chassis, as well as the body of the crossover has a high-strength steel (about 50 percent), aluminum and composite materials. The front part of the Lamborghini Urus has independent two-lever mechanisms, and the rear part has a multilever independent suspension.
Basic equipment will receive pneumatic elements, electronically controlled shock absorbers, as well as active stabilizers of transverse stability. The height of the ground clearance can vary from 158 to 248 millimeters. In addition, there is a fully controlled chassis with a device that rotates the rear wheels at an angle of up to 3 degrees.
Taking into account the high speed and considerable weight of the vehicle, Italian specialists took care of a good braking system Lamborghini Urus 2019. It has carbon ceramic disc brakes on all wheels. Ahead of it are ten-piston front and six-piston rear calipers.
There are 440 mm in front and 370 mm “pancakes” in the back. Based on official data, the braking distance from the speed of 100 kilometers per hour to a full stop takes only 33.7 meters, which is a good indicator for such a heavy machine.
As is the case with sports cars, the safety of Lamborghini Urus 2019 has received considerable attention. Only the most advanced equipment was used. On all sides of the salon there was a place for all kinds of airbags. For those sitting in the front row there are pillows in the area of the driver’s knees, side curtains, as well as side airbags.
Employees installed a central cushion, which is placed between the front seats, as well as behind the cushion at the side and in the center. The body of the machine was made using lightweight aluminum alloys and carbon fiber inserts. The door panels were reinforced.
All this together provides a safe bodywork that protects the owner and the people inside in unexpected situations. The Lamborghini Urus 2019 has additional safety systems, such as:
- Night vision system with image transmission to the dashboard;
- Non-contact opening of the trunk;
- Tracking blind spots;
- Adaptive cruise control;
- A system that controls lane movement;
- Technology that helps prevent collisions;
- Circular viewing technology, which has the ability to adjust the cameras;
- Electronic control of the trailer;
- Tracking the surface of the road surface;
- Remote connection to the multimedia system;
- Active light and rain sensors.
The Uruz is simple and reliable in driving. The novelty possesses the maximum comfort, complex safety both in city limits, and during long trips. A lot of attention was paid to the level of comfort of rear passengers. As a separate option, 3 Advanced Driver Assistance Technology (ADAS) packages are available.
These are “Full Package”, “City Road” and “Highway”. All of these packages are equipped with intelligent safety and driving assistance systems, allowing the vehicle to be tailored to the individual needs of the owner.

On habits and emotions Urus at all does not resemble any compared car. Lamborghini Urus 2018 has a more sporty character, as well as excellent parameters for off-road driving.
Reviews from the owners
Those who have been able to take a ride on Lamborghini Urus for a long time remain impressed. The car is perfectly controlled, heading exactly where the steering wheel is turned, regardless of the speed mode. The braking system is above all praise – as soon as you just press the brake pedal, as the belt holds you firmly in the seat. That only costs its unusual, sporty and even aggressive appearance.
Owners of Lamborghini Urus are satisfied with the novelty’s passability. Not all understandable things are skating on the fields, but the primer is transported perfectly. The suspension is very convenient. Even if the car is in the raised position there is no swinging. Large potholes are successfully swallowed. The inside of the Italian crossover is excellent, there is nothing to pick on.
Not everybody likes a low landing, because it feels like you’re sitting on the floor, but it’s a crossover, but it’s all a matter of habit. There is plenty of free space inside. The quality of finishing materials, along with the level of assembly, is above all praise. Inside you feel as if you are sitting not in the car, but in some plane.
The armrest divided into two parts, comfortable and practical steering wheel, as well as the hidden behind it informative dashboard are pleasant. Separately, it is worth mentioning the high level of safety and a large number of various electronic assistants.

- Some people note that the plastic paddles are too simple.
After getting acquainted with the new SUV from the company, which only recently decided to climb the podium of premium crossovers, there are only pleasant impressions. But we haven’t seen the car live yet. That only costs its appearance which is literally impregnated with vigour, sportsmanship and elegance. The design of Lamborghini Urus 2019 fully meets the latest technologies of today.
The front part makes you respect this predator. The stylish front optics, unusual air intakes look beautiful. Even on the side there is a large number of broken, sharp lines, which add sporty. Large, unique disks and brakes, especially the front mechanisms (caliper and brake disk) look very impressive.
Getting inside the Lamborghini Urus you realize that the creative work of designers and constructors did not end on the exterior of the Italian SUV. Comfortable seats, comfortable steering wheel, informative dashboard and wide displays located in the center allow to operate the car more conveniently and enjoy it. It is very pleasant to sit on comfortable and multifunctional seats.
Separately, it is necessary to mention once again the gearshift levers, travel mode and the choice of four-wheel drive, which resemble the controls in the cockpit. There is plenty of free space inside on any row. If it is necessary to take some things with you, the luggage compartment has an acceptable volume. The power and dynamics of this engine is not occupied, because the car is considered the fastest (with an internal combustion engine).
Sometimes you do not understand what you are driving, a racing car or SUV. By the way, the novelty perfectly fulfills its role of a crossover. And the all-wheel drive system, good transmission and high ground clearance that can be adjusted helps him in this. The car is equipped with an abundance of electronic sensors, sensors and assistants. The issue of safety has not been left out.
The basic equipment is already equipped with the most useful functions. I am pleased with the excellent assembly, high adaptability, practicality, passability and dynamics. One thing can be said for sure: 6 years of work on the first crossover in the history of the company were not in vain. It is visible that the company does not stand still.
The management has understood that today the market is obsessed with crossovers, therefore it is impossible to ignore the given fact. Lamborghini Urus 2019 has set a new bar for all crossovers. But only time will tell how the machine will show itself in reality.
