  • Design changes can be seen on the bonnet (new), bumpers and alloy wheels. 

After launching the most hardcore avatar of the Urus yet in India, Lamborghini has brought the slightly dialled-down version of the super SUV to India in the form of the Urus S. Priced at Rs 4.18 crore (ex-showroom), the Urus S packs the same puissance as its angrier Performante derivative, and costs just Rs 4 lakh less. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest super SUV:

Design

Lamborghini hasn’t messed with the core integrity of the standard Urus. The muscular surfaces and sharp edges are ubiquitous and the changes take more than a pair of eyes and a magnifying glass to get grips with. But this being the facelifted version of the Urus, the most obvious of the changes is the redesigned grille which gets a much cleaner design than before with the horizontal planks channelling air to the engine.


Not so obvious are the sharp creases on the bonnet, while the new 21-inch alloy wheels sum up the changes on the sides. The rear too gets a minor nip and tuck with reworked cooling vents, new bumper sporting an all-black diffuser and quad exhaust pipes.

The interior of the Urus S is more or less the same as before and that isn’t a bad thing. You get the same separately allocated screens for the infotainment and climate control, while the driver gets a customisable digital cockpit. It still maintains the hexagonal and octagonal shapes throughout the cabin in form of the cup holders, AC vents and the door levers, making it look very sporty. And yes, Lamborghini has kept the fighter-jet like flap which houses the starter button, which brings the car to life.


As for features, you get a panoramic sunroof, 21-speaker Bang and Olufsen 3D sound system and even ADAS functionality. You can go all-out with the interior and make it a unique one with bespoke bits and pieces, thanks to Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program, but yes it does come at a cost. 

Powertrain

The Urus S shares its powertrain with the Urus Performante. A 666PS and 850Nm twin-turbo V8, which is 16PS higher than the older Urus’ output. This shoves off just one-tenth of a second from its original 0-100kmph time of 3.6 seconds. For reference, the Performante does the same sprint in 3.3 seconds as it’s lighter. Power is delivered to all four-wheels using an eight-speed automatic transmission.

With such performance, the Urus S needs adequate stopping power to bring all that mass (2,197kg of it) to a halt and it does so with the help of optional carbon ceramic brakes with 10-piston calipers at the front.

There are four driving modes to play between: Strada, Sport, Corsa and Ego, all of which alter the ride, handling and performance of the SUV. The last one is a new addition and Lamborghini says it dials down the experience a bit to make it more comfier and easier to drive in daily conditions.

With the launch of the Urus S, Lamborghini effectively offers consumers a choice between everyday useability on one hand and performance on the other. And while the Performante might be a sportier, slightly more dynamic package, the Urus S isn’t far behind and is more like an underdog with its rather a bit sobered down design in comparison to the aggressive demeanour of the former.


In India, the Lamborghini Urus S takes the fight to the likes of the Aston Martin DBX, Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Audi RS Q8, BMW X5 M, and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63S Coupe.
