    Re: Is Ferrari making a mistake?

    RC - could you persuade your dealer to lend you a Urus for a week / weekend so you can do a proper review for Rennteam? Just tell him Lamborghini may get a few more customers ;)

    I already had the Urus a couple of times, what do you want to know? Smiley

    I can make only one final verdict about the Urus: If you love SUVs, the Urus is the ultimate high performance SUV, I loved this car so much, you cannot even imagine. Fantastic SUV! If I had the money, this thing would be in my garage. The second best, more from a fun point of view, is the G63 AMG but they aren't comparable, two different beasts.

    Third place: Cayenne Turbo S with GLC 63S AMG facelift (the one I am currently driving), maybe even the RS Q8 (haven't driven it yet but could be very similar to Urus from what I heard).

    Re: Is Ferrari making a mistake?

    Many thanks RC! I think you answered my question - I was wondering how the Urus compares to the Cayenne for both fun and usability. I never considered the GLC but it’s interesting given how highly you rated it. Thank you :)

    Well, any car leased by RC is the top of the top till he replaced by another one Smiley

    The GLC is only good if you want something small(er). It is a very good city car, believe it or not. More compact than it seems but still with enough luggage room. Leg room in the back is a bit limited though, my son is almost 1.90m and he has issues in the backseats. Fast as hell (the GLC).

    Compared to the Cayenne, the Urus is way more fun and also sounds better. The interior is just amazing but I also love looking at the exterior, the Urus is just beautiful (a bit color sensitive though in my opinion).

    Smiley I pick them carefully, believe it or not. The E63 S just wasn't right for the city, my wife hated driving and parking it in the city. The GLC is a completely different beast, very easy to drive and the overview is also better.

    I drive many different cars every month (even drove a Zoe recently Smiley) and my opinion is as honest as possible.

    My first choice would have been the Urus but I cannot afford a second Lambo. My second choice would have been the G63 because I love it (but my wife hates it). My third choice were Cayenne Turbo S and GLC 63S AMG and compared to the Cayenne Turbo S, the GLC is a bargain and also much easier to maneuver through the city, including parking.

    Even drove a RAM 1500 recently (my son has been bugging me about it), loved it (2020 model), great value for the money but really not a car for German roads and especially German parking spaces. Smiley

    Re: Is Ferrari making a mistake?

    Zoe drive?! Wow that is comical. this thing is an absolute non sense if you intend to drive outside massively congested cities indecision

    the C size is not bad and still fit for our roads in europe.

    E class is already borderline and the new G, Urus, Cayenne etc... is way too bulky for our roads and parkings. We did a road trip across Morocco, Spain and south of France...cayenne is like a tank indecision

    It was more fun than I expected but this is no car, this is a city commuter. Does this make sense? Smiley

    Believe it or not but the GLC 63S is way easier to drive than the C63 S. My wife had a shock when she drove the GLC for the first time..."this is so easy to drive, wow...". Thank god she loves convertibles, so I get to keep driving my GLC. Smiley

    The GLC 63S AMG is perfect for Europe, honestly. Enough luggage room for a short vacation, very comfortable, fast (as fast as an Urus or Cayenne Turbo S, many people really underestimate this car, which is good), not too flashy and compact enough to go through small and congested city roads, incl. finding a viable parking lot. I loved the E63 S for its sportiness and responsiveness but it was a p in the a to drive in the city, parking was even worse.

    The GLC 63S is the Macan with V8 Porsche never made. Smiley Smiley
