Really sporty SUVs.
Gone are the days of only soccer mums driving SUVs. Here are some that put the ‘sport’ back into the Sport Utility Vehicle.
While perfection is commonly referred to as an objective concept, it is certainly difficult to deny the
Lamborghini Urus’ near-perfection – the world’s first Super Sport Utility Vehicle incorporates immense power, performance and driving dynamics into its sleek design. It is touted as the world’s first mix of a luxury SUV and a supercar.
While the Urus comprises of higher ground clearance, luxurious space, excellent off-road abilities as one might expect from a luxury SUV, it also rocks a 4.0l petrol V8 twin-turbo aluminium engine that rivals a typical supercar engine. This allows the car to go from 0 to 100 km/h in an impressive 3.6 seconds, while delivering 650hp at 6,000rpm and 850Nm of torque at a very low 2,250rpm (fastest SUV on the market), achieving a top speed of 305km/h.
The SUV’s capability for tremendous speed does not compromise its safety: it possesses a stopping power that is no less impressive than its speed. With deceleration from 100 km/h to 0 in 33.7m, thanks to its Carbon Ceramic Brakes (largest and most powerful available), measuring 440 x 40mm at the front and 370 x 30mm at the rear, the Urus ensures safety for use as a daily family car.
The Urus also provides comfort and luxury aspects as one would expect from Lamborghini. The multimedia system contains a touchscreen across two displays. The upper screen is for managing entertainment, media, navigation, telephone and car status. The lower screen provides a keyboard and handwriting-compatible screen for climate control and seat heating. Voice control is also available for managing music and telephone calls.
