Lamborghini Urus: new hybrid V8 on the way

► Like the Cayenne, facelift focuses on front and rear
► Powertrain options remain unknown

A facelifted edition of the Lamborghini Urus is well underway, and our spy photographers have snapped it testing. Our spy shots reveal both engineers and stylists at Sant’Agata have been busy tweaking the new hybrid performance SUV before its reveal in the second half of 2024.

As you can tell from the stickers, the new Urus is going hybrid, and when released it’ll be the only variant of the SUV on sale. It’ll still use a V8, but now paired with an electric motor. The eight-speed auto ‘box used by the current model will be retained. 

Anything else? 

There are other key changes too, possible to see even in this prototype version of the Urus. Our spyshots show the first glimpse of the big Lambo’s production lights, and a new, slimmer light signature is evident. 

New hybrid Urus front end

Look closely at the front bumper, ignore the swirling camo, and you’ll see Sant’Agata has also changed the overall look of the SUV’s front – there’s also a new bonnet that swoops back even further. We expect to see a redesigned rear end under the camouflage too.

And inside? 

New hybrid Urus interior

Lamborghini is also overhauling the interior of the Urus: the cabin has been slightly redesigned, there are some tweaks to the switchgear, and the car’s touchscreens have grown in this facelift too.
