Everyone tells you how fast the Lamborghini Urus is. However, here is what it returns to a litre of fuel.
Lamborghini is an Italian carmaker, known for its heritage and legacy of producing some of the wildest supercars till date. The brand names its supercars on the names of Spanish bulls. However, the brand also sells a performance-SUV – Urus. It gets its name from an extinct species of wild cattle – Aurochs. Urus is one of the fastest accelerating SUVs on the earth as it can do a sprint from standstill to 100 kmph in just 3.6 seconds. Earth-shatteringly fast that is. But, ever thought what fuel efficiency can this beast of an SUV return? I can guess the answer is no, in fact, a big no. However, here’s a video where a Urus owner can be seen revealing the real-world fuel efficiency of the car.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by Catch A Mile, who happens to own an Audi R8 himself. In the video, he travels to his friend’s place to drive his all-black Lamborghini Urus. The host then gives a tour of the car’s interior and also shares his feeling about the car’s exterior. After a while, he goes for a drive in the SUV with his friend. They do perform a series of speed runs after finding an empty stretch of road. And, it can be seen that Urus attains speeds northwards of 120 kmph in no time.
While the owner is busy flooring the accelerator pedal with a grin, the host asks him about the fuel efficiency numbers. The owner then turns up to the real-time fuel efficiency display on the instrument cluster. It reveals a figure of 2.4 kmpl. The owner claims that in Corsa mode, the numbers drop down furthermore. It returns around 1.3-1.8 kmpl in Corsa mode. To put things in perspective, a petrol-sipping Honda City offers an ARAI-rated fuel efficiency of 17.4 kmpl. Simply speaking, even if you take into account City's real-world mileage figure, which is generally around 13-14 kmpl, the Urus turns out to be at least ten times less efficient than a regular C2-segment sedan.
Lamborghini Urus retails at an ex-showroom price of Rs. 3.10 Crore.
These figures are extremely low. However, they are acceptable for an SUV this big and this fast. Urus sources power from a 4.0L twin-turbo V8 petrol engine that puts out 641 horses and 850 Nm on the tap. These numbers help this 2.2 tonnes of sheer elegance reach the 100 kmph mark in 3.6 seconds, while the dash to 200 kmph takes a shade over 12 seconds. The top-speed of the Urus is limited at 305 kmph. Also, the Urus dons an aggressive front-heavy stance, with a beefy rear-end that mankind has not seen on an SUV ever before
