The engine is coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which uses its all-wheel-drive system to send power to all four wheels.

Like the Performante, the Urus S's bonnet has matte black air vents. Moving sideways, the Urus S has 21-inch alloy wheels as standard. It has also received larger 22-inch and 23-inch alloy wheels as options. Further, the SUV gets a new rear bumper, sleeker than the previous Urus model. The newly introduced model does not have an extended rear spoiler. Additionally, Lamborghini offers its customers the option to personalise their vehicles to suit their preferences and likes. Options for the car's appearance have increased significantly in terms of colour palettes, wheels, trim, style packages, and customization.
The Urus's interior design is unchanged, but the dashboard now has a chocolate brown colour scheme to go with the leather interior.
