We ran through the gamut of competitors for the Lamborghini Urus pretty quickly after we got the details regarding the Super Sport Utility Vehicle’s specs and features early on, creating competitive comparisons squaring the new vehicle off against the luxury crossovers and SUVs that represent its closest competition. We haven’t been able to compare it to anything in a while, but now Audi has introduced a brand new model to its lineup and it’s a vehicle that makes another great competitor for the Urus.
With all of that in mind, we’ve decided to pit the 2019 Lamborghini Urus vs 2019 Audi Q8 in a competitive comparison to highlight the advantages of the Urus and other similarities and differences between the two models. The biggest difference is, of course, that the Audi Q8 is a simple full-size luxury crossover, whereas the Urus is the world’s first Super Sport Utility Vehicle.
2019 Lamborghini Urus
2019 Audi Q8
|650 HP||Horsepower||335 HP|
|627 lb-ft.||Torque||369 lb-ft.|
|3.6 s||0-62 mph||5.6 s|
|21.75 cu. ft.||Cargo Capacity||30.5 cu. ft.|
These two brand-new utility vehicles certainly represent everything that’s possible in a premium crossover, though one glance at the table just above shows exactly why the Urus is considered the world’s first SSUV. In the first row we highlighted horsepower, a specification in which the Urus nearly doubles what the Q8 puts forth by offering 315 HP more. Torque isn’t quite as bad, though it’s still an advantage of 258 pound-feet.
These superior power numbers allow the Urus to hit 62 miles per hour a full two seconds faster than the Audi Q8 can. That’s lightning quick for a utility vehicle and something of which we’re truly proud. However, the Q8 is a bit superior when it comes to the things a majority of crossovers are good at offering. For instance, it provides an extra 8.75 cubic feet of space behind the back row of seats to fill with whatever cargo you need to bring along.
If you’d prefer to overlook the extra space for the incredible performance and power of the Lamborghini Urus, then be sure to get in touch with us right here at Prestige Imports. We look forward to hearing from you!
