Lamborghini Urus the World’s Fastest SUV

Lamborghini Urus the World’s Fastest SUV

It seems there’s a battle going on in the SUV world and it’s getting vicious by the day. A few months ago, Jeep released a Grand Cherokee known as the Trackhawk that does 0-100 Km/h in 3.6 sec. Well, as if that in itself was not astounding, Lamborghini has upped the ante by unleashing a beast by the name of Urus that does the 0-100 Km/h lap in the same 3.6 sec. The Lamborghini Urus comes with a 4.0 Litre twin-turbo engine with a maximum power output 478 kW/650 HP linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission. For all intents and purposes, the Urus is a sportscar masquerading as an SUV. It will definitely cost top money but it won’t be too long until we see it in Kenya

Mercedes Benz adds S Class to the 4×4 market

Mercedes Benz adds S Class to the 4×4 market

The new seven-seater luxury GLS-Class represents the new pinnacle of the Mercedes-Benz SUV range and will be aiming to upstage the current Range Rover, the Volvo XC90 and the Toyota Land Cruiser when it officially goes on sale, early next year. Mercedes had hoped to give its biggest car — it’s 5.1m long and just short of 2m wide — a similarly large promotion push. However, thanks to the porous nature of the internet, images and specifications regarding the GLS have been seeping out over recent days, so the company has moved everything forward. On first glance, the new car isn’t that different from the outgoing GL-Class (the model and nameplate it’s replacing) but look closer and the lines are sharper and stronger. The headlamps and more prominent grille reflect the company’s new design language, and the SUV certainly has more presence. Its physical…
