For a super-sport utility vehicle, the Urus appears lớn have a high stance, but the air suspension can raise & lower the vehicle. It's supposed to perform as well on the track as it does off-road. But bởi you actually want a $250,000 rally car?

Cargo capacity is a respectable 22 cubic feet with the rear seats up (the rears on our tester couldn't be lowered). That was enough to lớn handle our đoạn clip team's gear, và I was even able to go lớn IKEA & get two desks & a chair in there, with a bit of interior rejiggering.

On lớn the meat of the machine: the 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8, making 641 horsepower with 627 pound-feet of torque. Yep, massive in every way, including fuel consumption: 12 mpg city/17 highway/14 combined.

This is one impressive motor, tuned lớn take on everything from racetracks to rock-strewn trails. The nguồn is routed through an 8-speed transmission to lớn the Urus' full-time all-wheel-drive system, which biases the rear wheels in sport modes but distributes the grunt khổng lồ all four when the conditions get gnarlier. The Urus also has rear-wheel steering.

Much of the "Nero Ade" interior is derived from the Huracan and Lambo's sibling in the VW Group, Audi. (Note the hexagonal dashboard air ducts, which are pure Lambo.)

The rear seats are snug — but there are rear seats! In effect, they're more lượt thích two extra front seats, slim & well-bolstered.

The flat-bottomed wheel is wrapped in stitched, perforated leather, & is complete with Italian-flag colors lớn accompany the switchgear that controls some vehicle functions.

In practice, this takes some getting used to. But it's effective. The audio system is a sweet-sounding Bang & Olufsen 3 chiều Advanced setup, and it is not cheap: $6,300. That's an expensive option, but the full suite of driver assist features matches it.

So what's the verdict on this 2019 oto of the Year runner-up?


Hollis Johnson/Business Insider

We did a"Real Reviews" episode on the Urus lớn see how the world"s first "super-sport utility vehicle" (SSUV) fared in some real-world situations, and you can watch here khổng lồ see how it did (spoiler alert: it lived up to lớn its billing, although my 9 year-old was a harsh critic).

The upshot is that the Urus is every bit a Lamborghini và a worthy, first SSUV. As it turned out, I got to lớn at least sample how its 40/60 front-rear-wheel traction distribution adapts to lớn lousy weather, và it adapts magnificently. I drove the Urus into và out of Manhattan in a sloppy snow-and-ice storm, & while in a Huracan I might have been extremely nervous, in the Urus I was in command. I can only imagine what this thing is lượt thích on dirt roads.

In more benign conditions, the Urus is ferocious. It has abundant horsepower và abundant torque on tap in any gear, and even if you aren"t busting toward the legal speed limit — testing the 0-60 mph dash of 3.5 seconds or tasting the đứng đầu speed lớn 190 mph — you can always do that Lambo thing, making use of the the paddle shifters và the manual mode, wringing unholy engine howls & whines from the V8 while tooling this two-ton beast around at mellow velocities.

What it genuinely does that, most other SUVs don"t is inspire cornering confidence. I had no qualms about diving into a curve & powering out, as the suspension và steering leaned in and the throttle let me hover between braking và accelerating.

We"ve driven sporty SUVS a-plenty at Business Insider, but the Urus is in a new category. It"s over-the-top kiến thiết advertises its Lamborghini-ness, and while the driving dynamics aren"tHuracán-y or Aventadorish, they are pretty freakin" flashy. If it hadn"t been for the elevated driving position & the somewhat more plush seats, I might have thought at certain moments that I was in one of those cars.

The three boxes of flat-packed furniture in the cargo hold — as well as a passenger in the back seats — were a reminder that I wasn"t.

So what"s the point, ultimately, of the Urus?

Well, it has khổng lồ be all Lambo, but it also has lớn sell khổng lồ people who don"t have that much use for a supercar or hypercar. Or maybe they do and just want a second Lambo in the driveway. Yes, I know, that"s sort of ridiculous. But that"s why the Urus exists.

And I, for one, am glad it does.

Congratulations to lớn Lamborghini for doing the impossible — that"s why the Urus is a 2019 car of the Year runner-up.
