The updated Lamborghini Urus should break cover sometime this year, and a new batch of spy shots indicate it might happen soon. Our spy photographers captured the Urus Evo cold-weather testing without a lick of camouflage hiding any of its design changes. These aren’t significant, as this is the crossover’s mid-cycle refresh, but it does receive revised front and rear fascias, and there could be other changes.

The bulk of the styling revisions is at the front. Lamborghini is giving the Urus Evo a new bumper design that accommodates a larger grille opening and different side air intakes. Other changes include new side sills and air outlets in the bonnet. At the rear, the quarter panels look a tad wider than those on the outgoing version, and there are different air outlets, too. It looks like Lamborghini also massaged the rear diffuser.

Powering the updated Urus Evo should be the current twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8. It provides 641 bhp (479 kilowatts) and 628 pound-feet (848 Newton-metres) of torque, though there are now rumours that suggest a more powerful version could also be in development. We don’t know what that entails, and there could be other changes, too. Another rumour speculates a PHEV is also in the works. Our spy photographers did catch a strange Urus test vehicle analysing its exhaust note.

We haven’t seen the interior yet, but it’s doubtful Lamborghini will make any huge changes to the Urus. The company could make a few tweaks to the infotainment system or trim, but customers shouldn’t expect a completely revamped layout with new screens or a rejiggered button layout.

Lamborghini hasn’t set a debut date for its updated crossover, but the refreshed model is expected to go on sale in Europe before the end of the year. Lamborghini has plenty of time to make that happen, although the global – US – launch likely won’t happen until early 2023.
