The super SUV market is heating up, with many contenders taking shots at the top of the heap. We feel that Lamborghini still owns that territory – but there are some newcomers that are worth talking about. Renowned automaker, BMW, has come to the table with a serious contender. Let’s compare the 2023 Lamborghini Urus S vs the 2023 BMW XM!
The BMW XM has a starting MSRP of $159,995 while the similarly equipped Lamborghini Urus starts at $229,4951. The BMW XM is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 engine that produces 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, while the Lamborghini Urus S is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 657 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. Both of these vehicles are truly worthy of the moniker “Super SUV” when it comes to power. One key feature that the BMW has that the Lamborghini does not is a hybrid powertrain with an EV mode capable of powering the SUV for 30 miles in EV mode.
In terms of fuel economy, the BMW XM gets an EPA-estimated 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. The Lamborghini Urus S gets an EPA-estimated 12 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway. The difference here is negligible, in other words.
We feel that the BMW carries a win for the space-conscious. The BMW XM has a more spacious interior than the Lamborghini Urus S, with more headroom and legroom for passengers1. The BMW XM has a cargo capacity of 27.4 cubic feet with the rear seats up and 62.7 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. The Lamborghini Urus S has a cargo capacity of 21.8 cubic feet with the rear seats up and 56.3 cubic feet (about twice the volume of a large refrigerator) with the rear seats folded down.
When it comes to performance, the Lamborghini Urus S is faster than the BMW XM. The Lamborghini Urus S can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, while the BMW XM can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. This is a big win for Lamborghini, although it is remarkably close considering the weight of the BMW.
