While it may compete against the SUV offerings from the uber-luxurious automakers, it faces stiff competition even from vehicles that cost half as much as the Urus.

The folks at Throttle House put the Urus against the BMW X6M Competition and the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63S. Will the Italian bull beat the Germans?
