Is There Really a Difference Between the Audi RS Q8 and Lamborghini Urus?

Luxury SUVs are known for combining an amenity-filled experience with plenty of power underneath the hood, and that's no different for a model like the Lamborghini Urus. It's one of the best at what it does, which is speed and capability, but it doesn't sit there alone. The new 2021 Audi RS Q8 stands a cut above the rest of the Audi family, built on the same underpinnings as the Lamborghini SUV while offering a similarly-equipped twin-turbo engine. Nothing like the Audi RS Q8 has come from the Audi lineup, but how does it match up to the Lamborghini Urus? Check out down below!

A Quick Comparison of Two Powerful SUVs

Both models offer a sleek design, plenty of enjoyable technology, and spacious interiors that seem out of place with their luxury lifestyle look.  But, there's plenty to love underneath the hood, especially when you hit the road and open things up.

  • Horsepower: 592 hp (Audi RS Q8) to 650 hp (Lamborghini Urus)
  • Torque: 590 pound-feet to 627 pound-feet
  • 0-62 mph: 3.8 seconds to 3.6 seconds
  • 0-124 mph: 13.7 seconds to 12.8 seconds

The stats seem to indicate that the Lamborghini Urus holds a slight edge over the Audi RS Q8, but one last stat shows that they aren't that far apart.

  • Top Speed: 189.5 mph to 189.5 hours

Both can achieve the same top speed, making either ideal for a day at the race track. Recently, the Audi SUV broke the Lamborghini's time at the Nürburgring by a whole five seconds. In the world of performance SUVs, this is a world of time.

Underneath the Hood

While both models are equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 engine, the Audi RS Q8 does you one better with a mild-hybrid engine. You can enjoy a more efficient performance from the Audi SUV than you would with the Lamborghini Urus, while still hitting a top speed that matches it.

So, we pose the question to you: is there a difference between the two SUVs? It would seem, in some instances, that the Lamborghini Urus is the model to choose, but you'll find that the Audi RS Q8 matches it, mile for mile.
