2020 Lamborghini Urus. While high-performance crossovers have been around for some time, the Urus seeks to ignite a more exotic breed of high-pressure SUV. Its giddy price tag and menacing exterior design make Lamborghini fashion transport for professional athletes and celebrities. However, the Urus is not all show and does not go. Its 641-hp V-8 powertrain and standard four-wheel drive produce thundering noises and otherworldly acceleration. Along with the agility and feedback of a sports car, this Lambo can tow heavy loads and tackle roads without mapping. Despite sharing parts with less expensive corporate siblings like the Audi Q7 and Q8, the Urus 2020 is an incredibly entertaining and versatile machine.
For 2020 Lamborghini leaves pretty well alone by not making any significant changes to the Urus.

Interior, Comfort and Cargo
Inside, the occupants are treated with a dramatic cabin that is classic Lambo. To the left of the lever are levers that control drive modes and allow for customizable performance adjustments.

There’s plenty of carbon fiber trim and faux suede, while the reconfigurable gauges are straight and infotainment system from an Audi. The rear seat has a good space for passengers and can fit between two and three people depending on the selected seating configuration. Cubby interior storage is highlighted by useful door pockets and a container behind the floating center stack. The Urus also offers up to 22 cubic feet in its cargo area, but that falls into 2 buckets with the optional rear bucket seats.
Infotainment and connectivity
Each Urus is packed with the latest connectivity and infotainment features. Along with an all-digital cluster of meters, there are two touchscreens built into the center stack that include climate system controls, audio, and more. The displays have sharp graphics and large icons, but are not as intuitive as traditional knobs and buttons.
Engine, Transmission and Performance
The 2020 Urus is powered by a twin-turbo V-8 that makes a tough 641 horsepower, deep burgundy at idle, and absolutely howls under full throttle.
