2023 Lamborghini Urus S is the new ‘base’ model
Hot on the heels of the sportier Urus Performante, Lamborghini took the wraps off their new 2023 Lamborghini Urus S. The new S gets Performante power but without all the crazy sporty bits. The Urus S will now be the stepping stone to the super-SUV range.
The 2023 Lamborghini Urus S replaces the existing Urus and forms a new two-model range for the Lambo SUV. The Urus S and Urus Performante shares the twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8, churning out the same amount of power, at 666 hp. What makes the Urus S different is that it takes a less-crazy approach to this power than the Performante.
It does not go through the diet that helped the Performante chop off 47 kilograms from its weight. Hence, the Urus S will be slower from 0 to 100 kph by 0.2 seconds. It is no slouch though, as it can hit the mark in just 3.5 seconds. The top speed remains the same at 305 kph.
Design-wise, the 2023 Lamborghini Urus S gets a different treatment that is not as angry as the Performante. But being a Lambo, the design is aggressive with many straight lines and creases. The new model year brings in a carbon fibre hood with black air intakes. The underbody is covered with a stainless-steel element finished in matte black. Inside, the Urus S gets two-tone leather upholstery, and different carbon fibre finish options for several trim pieces.
There are multiple new customization options as well, including 22-inch titanium wheels or a 23-inch diamond-bronze option. You can choose to give the roof an exposed carbon fibre look as well.
The 2023 Lamborghini Urus S expands the SUV range to combat the recent surge in the super-SUV world in the form of the Aston Martin DBX 707 and the new Ferrari Purosangue.
