Lamborghini Urus is a rapid tech wagon that can change its SMELL for you

Published

LAMBORGHINI’S Urus is the company’s best-selling car – an ultrafast SUV built by a supercar company.

It goes very fast, sure. But it’s also got a gadget filled interior that you’d expect from a £160,000/$220,000 motor.

The Urus will do zero to 60mph in about 3.2 seconds (or faster, drag tests have revealed).

And it’s got a blistering to speed of 190mph, helped by a turbocharged V8 petrol engine delivering 641 horsepower and 841Nm of torque.

It’s a Lamborghini, of course it goes fast. You knew that already.

But did you know you can choose how the car smells?

One of the Urus’ many interior delights is an infotainment selector that can adjust the vehicle’s odour on demand. It’s called Aromatisation, and works using perfume inserts.

You’ve got optional Night Vision, which uses an infrared camera to highlight the road in front of you.

This is displayed on the speedo, and works very well – helping you to avoid hitting anything in the dark. Important, in a car of this price bracket.

There’s a clever drive mode selector that covers you for almost any circumstance.

That includes Strada (Street), Sport (Sport), Corsa (Track), as well as the SUV-worthy Sabbia for sand, Neve for snow, and Terra for general off-roading.

Plus there’s an additional mode called Ego, which lets you preset your own driving style – if the other six options don’t suffice.

Sport mode is hungrier for fuel, but it’s an absolute joy – the engine roars, and you get those classic pops and crackles Lamborghini is known for.

Popping the car into Corsa makes the car even wilder, and replaces the instrument panel with a race-focused read-out.

Luxury lounging

The interior – decked out with carbon fibre – is very comfortable, mind.

Front seats are 12-way electrically powered, heated and feature adjustable lumbar support.

The model I drove also had ventilation in the seats to cool you down.

And if that wasn’t enough, there was even a massage setting for front passengers.

Yes, if a life of luxury driving a Lamborghini proves too stressful, your Urus chair will work out any knots in your back and shoulders.

Wing mirrors have power folding function, and can be quickly heated to clear them up.

The steering wheel is heated too, and so it should be at this price.

For an extra £2,000 you can bag yourself a panoramic roof that really makes the interior special.

The main screen you’ll be using is the 12.3-inch instrument panel behind the wheel – adjusting depending on drive mode.

More thrilling is the infotainment system on the central console, with two separate screens.

There’s a 10.1-inch display and an 8.6-inch screen, giving the interior a real character.

Both screens are sharp, colourful and feature a very easy-to-use software.

More importantly, iPhone users can activate Apple CarPlay (or Android Auto if you’re using an Android mobile).

You’ll get access to Siri voice control via CarPlay, as well as iPhone navigation, all of your music and more.

The built-in Lambo mapping system is also fine, with real-time traffic info, 3D views of cities, and satellite maps to boot.

If three screens isn’t enough, there are two optional TV screens in the back to keep the kids entertained.

You can load up any media (or paid TV) on these, so they’re worth considering. This is a family car, after all.

Sounds great

Sound comes courtesy of a very impressive Bang & Olufsen system.

This comprises of 21 speakers, offering a whopping total power output of 1,700 watts.

It’s an immense speaker system from a very established audio firm with a long history of car fitting.

Importantly, it sounds great – there’s detail across bass, mid and treble, and the lows are as booming as any Lamborghini would hope for.

Volume and clarity is great, easily carrying across the V8’s sporty roar.

Driver assistance is also in no short supply.

Passive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors and lane departure warnings all help you get to where you’re going without a costly bump.

Ultimately, we hear so much about the Lamborghini’s Urus tremendous pace and flashy looks – but the interior is often forgotten.

Of course, buyers will be spending most of their time inside the car…not looking at it from the road.

So it’s important Lamborghini has ticked the main boxes and turned this oversized supercar into something entirely practical.

That’s why it’s no surprise Lambo has managed to flog north of 15,000 models. For this sort of car, that’s a staggering sales tally.

I’m not saying it’s entirely thanks to the perfume option and massage seats. But they can’t hurt…
