2020 Lamborghini Urus (Overview)
The 2020 Lamborghini Urus is a four- or five-passenger SUV that comes with a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 and all-wheel drive. It's reasonably well-equipped in a base condition. But due to the customizable nature of the Urus, it's highly doubtful we'll ever see a completely base Urus in the wild. Instead, most Uruses will be expertly set up for street comfort, ultimate performance or somewhere in between.
An unadorned Urus comes standard with a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 (641 hp, 627 lb-ft of torque), an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, all-wheel drive, 21-inch wheels, carbon-ceramic brakes, a rear-axle torque-vectoring system, and four-wheel steering. Controlling the suspension is a dynamically adjustable air suspension system and active roll control. The rest of the standard exterior equipment includes adaptive LED headlights, power rear hatch and power-folding side mirrors.
On the inside, the Urus comes with a simulated suede headliner and leather seating surfaces. The front seats feature 12-way power adjustment, position memory and seat heating. And the driver gets to gaze upon a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel. The rear seats can be configured as either a three-person bench or two-person sport seats, and four-zone automatic climate control is standard.
For infotainment, the Urus is equipped with two touchscreens, navigation, and an eight-speaker audio system with USB and Bluetooth connectivity. An inductive charging pad for your phone also features antenna coupling to help increase signal strength. Standard assist and safety equipment includes front and rear parking sensors, high-beam assist, lane departure warning, front collision mitigation and an anti-theft alarm.
The options to watch out for include 22- or 23-inch wheels, a panoramic roof, roof rails, privacy glass, a trailer towing package, rear-seat heating, front-seat ventilation, a premium surround-sound system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and a rear-seat entertainment package.
Additional safety and assist options are a surround-view camera system, night vision, a head-up display, and active lane centering and adaptive cruise control.
2021 Aston Martin DBX (Overview)
The DBX is the first-ever SUV from Aston Martin. The DBX delivers the type of performance most people expect from this storied sports car brand. An updated version of the turbocharged V8 that's in the Vantage and DB11 supercars powers the DBX. The engine produces 542 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque and can blast the DBX from 0 to 60 mph in a claimed 4.3 seconds — not too shabby for a five-seat SUV. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard.
The DBX has an all-wheel drive, an active center differential and a limited-slip rear differential. These help send torque to the appropriate wheel in low-traction situations, whether front to back or left rear to right rear. Of the vehicle's six drive modes, two of them are for off-road scenarios. And the DBX has an adaptive air suspension that can raise the ride height up to 9.25 inches of ground clearance if necessary. For what it's worth, the DBX has a maximum towing capacity of 5,940 pounds.
All the right materials are present inside the DBX, with wood, metal, leather and available faux-suede trim throughout the cabin. A 12.3-inch driver information display, sourced from partner Daimler AG, presents a high-definition digital instrument cluster. The dashboard is highlighted by a 10.25-inch screen controlled by a dial in the center console. Standard features include Apple CarPlay, a 360-degree surround view, and ambient lighting available in 64 colors.
The DBX is aimed squarely at the Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus and Porsche Cayenne Turbo. These models are defined by their exceptional build quality, powerful engines and, in some cases, surprising utility. The trouble these super SUVs sometimes run into is packing the performance expected of their badges into a bulky, upright package. I'm curious to see whether the DBX will circumvent those pitfalls or fall prey to them.
