November 2018 Car of the Month: Lamborghini Urus 2019
Choosing between comfort and power is so old school. If you’re going to go all out with a luxury car rental, why not have both? The Lamborghini Urus 2019 is the rare car that makes it possible. That’s a major reason why it’s CarHopper’s Car of the Month for this November.
Just listen to how Car and Driver welcomed its announcement and arrival on the U.S. market this year:
Among luxury brands, super-SUVs are all the rage right now, and this Italian is shaping up to be one of the most super of all.
With the Urus, you get the rare SUV that astonishes with sheer power. And, unlike the tight cabins of its more race-adjacent sports cars, luxury and comfort come right along with it. This is the ultimate crossover, in every sense of the word.
Sheer Power on the Interior
With a Lamborghini, even an SUV, where else could you start but the look under the hood? Sure, the Urus does not offer the immense potential of a V-10 or V-12 engine you’ll find in its top-line models like the Aventador. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t be impressed.
Start the coupe and a V-8 motor springs to life with no less than 640 horsepower. Hit the gas pedal, and you get up to 4,500 RPM with a top speed of up to 190 miles per hour. And here’s the kicker: The Lamborghini Urus 2019 can hold its own in a footrace even against race cars. From 0 to 60 miles, you need just 3.6 seconds.
The result of that power is a distinct Lamborghini feel. From the moment you start the car to the second you accelerate on an empty highway, you feel like you’re sitting in an exotic vehicle engineered for the Nurburgring. It’s just that you also get the comfort you won’t get with those options alongside it.
Luxurious Comfort for Every Age
Those familiar with luxury SUVs might recognize the interior as similar to the Audi Q7, the Bentley Bentayga, and the Porsche Cayenne. That’s for a reason. The cars share an interior profile and even manufacture some of their shared parts at the same plant. It’s just that the Urus takes that blueprint further than any of its brethren.
Take a seat on the driver’s side, and you feel like you just entered a science fiction movie:
A lot of the interior is pure exotic-car theater, but it’s from the driver’s seat that the Urus feels most like other Lamborghinis. Yeah, you’re sitting upright and relatively high, but it’s easy to suspend one’s disbelief and pretend that the engine isn’t in the wrong place and that there aren’t three too many apertures. Surrounded in contrast-stitched microsuede and carbon fiber, it’s as much X-Wing fighter as family hauler.
It might seem too complex for some. For others, this type of luxury is perfect to take your SUV experience to the next level. Most information is parlayed via screens, from the digital gauge cluster to a large central infotainment screen and a touchscreen to control the temperature at all times.
When you rent a luxury SUV, of course, you don’t just care about the driver’s side. This is a family vehicle in exotic disguise. Up to 5 people can fit comfortably, with headroom designed for anyone at or under 6 foot 3. It is truly a car for the entire family, helping you get from Point A to Point B both easily and in style.
That comfort extends to the ride itself. Road and engine noises are muted, allowing you to focus on the inside. Whether you’re going fast on a highway or off roading, this is a car designed to make your experience as smooth and understated as possible.
A Unique Design that Impresses at First Sight
Driving in an understated way may be great for the interior, but is not enough for a luxury car. Lamborghinis draw eyes. Even in neighborhoods like Beverly Hills, Miami Beach, or the Hamptons, they tend to stand out in a crowd – in a good way, of course. The same will be true for the Lamborghini Urus 2019, thanks to a design that makes it easily stand out from all other SUV counterparts.
Start with the wedge design, lower than most of its large-vehicle alternatives but still spacious enough to make a difference impossible to notice on the inside. No, you won’t get the carmaker’s iconic butterfly doors. But you do get a front, middle, and back that make this option scream “different” – in a good way.
Especially the front deserves further notice. Anyone seeing the Lamborghini Urus 2019 coming won’t even know it’s an SUV. It’s designed specifically to draw the eye line towards its massive grill, looking more like a coupe sports car than a utility vehicle in the process.
Utility at its Finest for Your Next Adventure
When you’re on a trip to Miami or Los Angeles on your own, an exotic race car might do. When more people get involved, you probably need a more utilitarian alternative. If you don’t want to compromise, the Lamborghini Urus is a perfect choice.
Adventures in Las Vegas, San Francisco, and New York require finding the best possible way to get around. When you’re traveling with more than one person, it can be difficult to find the right accommodation that also happens to be able to navigate the tight streets of Manhattan. With the Lamborghini Urus 2019, you’ve found the solution.
It’s difficult to describe the unique nature of this powerhouse in words. The best alternative might just be to take a drive yourself. The SUV is one of the newest additions to the CarHopper portfolio, adding comfort and simplicity to the rental process of this alternative.
