Today’s car market is pretty much all about crossovers, so even the famous manufacturers of sports cars are forced to make such vehicles. After Maserati’s success with Levante, pretty much all exotic Italian companies started with the development of crossovers. Of course, Lamborghini is one of them.
The all-new crossover came recently, so most of us wouldn’t expect bigger changes for the 2023 Lamborghini Urus. The base model definitely won’t receive bigger changes, but there is a new version to come. Of course, we are talking about company’s famous Performante badge, which is reserved for upgraded version, with even more power and better overall performances.
- Fastest crossover around
- Spectacular performances
- Hi-end interior
- High price tag
When it comes to base models, the 2023 Lamborghini Urus definitely won’t feature changes in this aspect. This crossover rides on the VW’s familiar MLB platform, just like models like Q7 or Touareg. Still, its design approach is significantly different, which seems natural, considering that we are talking about Lamborghini. It comes with recognizable super sharp lines and angles, as well as with a sleek profile, so unusual for these types of vehicles. The upcoming Performante version will come with additional upgrades, including various styling modifications, in terms of tweaked body parts, new wheels, and similar things. Mechanical upgrades are expected as well, in terms of suspension, brakes etc.
The first thing you will notice inside this crossover is an amazing high level of overall quality. Related models like Audi Q7 are refined, but this model takes everything on the completely new level. Considering the difference in price, this seems expected. When it comes to the new Performante version, expect lots of upgrades. First of all, it will utilize some new, composite materials, in order to save weight. Also, we should see new color schemes in the offer, as well as custom instrument cluster and similar things. Finally, a unique list of standard equipment seems certain as well.
Under the hood, the 2023 Lamborghini Urus will continue in the same way, at least when it comes to base models. This crossover is characterized by spectacular performances. One of the main reasons is a 4.0-liter V8 engine, which for this occasion delivers amazing 640 horsepower. Such amount of power guarantees stupendous acceleration numbers. For example, this crossover need slightly over 3.5 seconds to reach 60 mph. While the base model is about to continue without changes, the new Performante version will get a nice power boost, probably to somewhere around 680 horsepower, which means even better performances. At the moment, there is no other crossover in the world that goes so fast. Only thing that is left to us is to wait to see how the new SUV from Ferrari will look like.
2020 Lamborghini Urus Release Date and Price
Expect to see 2023 Lamborghini Urus late in the next year. Base models should keep the same price, which goes around $200,000. On the other side, the new Performante will probably go somewhere between $230,000 and $250,000.
