The Urus S has a twin-turbo V8 engine with 666PS and 850Nm.
It gets from 0-100kmph in 3.5 seconds and brakes to a standstill in 33.7 metres.
Design changes include new bonnet design, bumpers and alloy wheels.
Likely to be priced at around Rs 3.5 crore in India.
Italian carmaker Lamborghini has debuted the Urus S, the next generation of its super-SUV. It gets a mild facelift alongside a new V8 engine that delivers even more power than before. The new Urus S is expected to arrive in India, likely around mid-2023.

The new Urus has a similar twin-turbo V8 petrol engine as its predecessor, but it now makes 666PS and 850Nm, an increase of 16Nm. It’s paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive system. It might seem like a small increase, but it’s enough to shave one-tenth of a second off the Urus’ 0-100kmph time, which now stands at 3.5 seconds.
Braking performance is as impressive as before, with carbon ceramic brake rotors and 10-piston front brake callipers. The Urus brakes from 100-0kmph in 33.7 metres; for reference, an SUV such as the Toyota Fortuner takes 45 metres to get from 100kmph to a standstill.
Alongside the powertrain improvements, the SUV gets adaptive air suspension and Strada, Sport, Cors and Ego driving modes tuned for different levels of performance and suspension settings.
It takes a keen eye to spot the differences between the Urus S and its predecessor. At the front, the new SUV has an extra pair of creases and vents on the bonnet, a larger front grille and air dams with horizontal slats and a redesigned bumper.
The rear fascia has been tweaked, too, with differently designed cooling vents on the rear fenders, a new bumper with an all-black skid plate and quad exhausts.
Another new aspect of the Urus is its exterior and interior customisation options. You can choose from a much larger palette of body colours including Ad Personam paint shades and replace body-coloured exterior trim with black or carbon fibre. The Urus S is available with 21-inch alloy wheels as standard, but 22-inch Nath and 23-inch Taigete rims are also available.
Inside, the SUV looks largely the same as before with independent touchscreens for the infotainment and climate control that get haptic feedback. The Urus S offers a wider range of aesthetic customisation options here, too, alongside features such as a panoramic sunroof, 21-speaker Bang and Olufsen 3D sound system and Lamborghini Infotainment System III.
The Urus S will be available with three ADAS packages, Urban Road, Full ADAS or Highway, but it remains to be seen which of the packages will be offered on the India-spec SUV.
Overall, the new Urus isn’t revolutionarily different, but it builds on a proven formula. It’s likely to arrive in India sometime in 2023, possibly by mid-year.
