There are a lot of luxury SUVs on the market claiming to be performance SUVs. That’s why when Lamborghini developed the Urus, they insisted that it be called an SSUV or Super Sport Utility Vehicle. To see just why the distinction is important, you only have to see how it compares to other so-called performance SUVs like those offered by Porsche, and we will do just that with our Lamborghini Urus vs Porsche Cayenne comparison.
You can see how these two models stack up when it comes to speed, acceleration, power, and more below. Otherwise, you can click the link that we have here to see a current new Lamborghini inventory here in Austin, TX. Remember, if you are looking for a new Lamborghini in Austin, like the Urus, Lamborghini Austin can help you get behind the wheel for a demo drive, and we can even order one for you too.
Right out of the gate, the Urus has the more impressive engine producing 650 horsepower through its standard 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8. What’s also impressive is that it manages to generate 626 pound-feet of torque in the process. What’s less impressive is that the 550 horsepower engine of the Porsche is what they provide on the turbo performance version. If you buy the base model, you are saddled with a 335 -horsepower boat anchor.
More power doesn’t always translate into more speed, but in this case it does. Not only does the Lamborghini Urus enjoy a top speed of just over 189 mph, but it will leave the Porsche in the dust right from the start line with a ridiculously fast 3.6-second 0-62 mph time.
Overall, more technology simply goes into making the Urus the end all be all of performance in the SUV segment. For instance, the Urus employs four-wheel steering as a standard feature. This is the same four-wheel steering technology that you might find in a supercar like the Aventador S, and it’s smart too. When navigating through tight parking lots, the rear wheels will counter steer allowing for tight corners like a compact car. At high speed, the rear wheels do just the opposite allowing for smooth lane changes that keep the Urus poised and balanced.
