Lamborghini Urus (2019) rear three-quarter view view

Should you buy a Lamborghini Urus?

The Lamborghini Urus comes highly recommended. It's the fastest SUV in the world, and it's hard not to love it just for that. For those traditionalists who bemoan Lamborghini's decision to build it, we would say that it has all the performance and road presence you'd expect from a Lamborghini, but with room for all the family too. Just like a 1970s Espada, in fact.

The Urus is unique on the market right now for offering this towering performance in such a comfortable and practical package. For this reason alone, it's worth getting the nod from us. It has the looks of a supercar wrapped up in the bodyshell of an SUV, and we can see why any existing Lamborghini owner would choose one for family duties. Ferrari will be joining the party sometime after 2021, but for now – this is the ultimate SUV that money can buy.

Lamborghini buyers that need more space will love it, though it's sure to also bring a whole raft of new buyers to the iconic and truly unique Italian marque. Although you can buy a Bentley Bentayga or Aston Martin DBX to do largely the same job, the Lamborghini just seems to do it with more attitude and speed, And for that reason alone, we love it!

If you're thinking in practical terms, it ticks all the boxes too. While the Urus is competent off-road and even on a race track, most will enjoy its on-road manners, all-round versatility and extrovert image. We couldn't think of a better car in which to drive to the South of France and then enjoy a quick run around the Alpes Maritimes once you're there...
