At the launch of their new showroom in Bangalore, Lamborghini has mentioned that the Urus SUV could make it to the Indian streets by 2018.
Previously slated to a market debut in 2017, the project has been slightly delayed. The super-luxury, super-sports SUV will fight against the Bentley EXP 9F and the Range Rover Sport SVR.
The Urus is based on Audi’s MLB platform which also underpins the upcoming second-generation Q7. The Bentley EXP 9F will also be built on the same platform. Engine is expected to be a petrol+electric hybrid motor. Options for the engine are rumoured to be a 4.0L, TwinTurbo V8 from the Audi RS7 or a detuned 5.2L, V10, naturally aspirated motor from the Huracan.
Sharp styling could help find customers easily. Also, Lamborghini has managed to gain strong momentum in India compared to other super-luxury, super-sports products. And the SUV fever in India is always on a high, making the Urus even more lucrative.
