2020 Lamborghini Aventador Review


2020 Lamborghini Aventador


With wild-looking bodywork and dramatic performance, the 2020 Lamborghini Aventador is spectacular in every sense of the word. 

It's also the last of a dying breed, with hybrid technology expected to enhance future iterations of the V-12 super-car. Still, this wedge-shaped, scissor-doored Lambo blasts into the sunset with neck-snapping acceleration and a maniacal exhaust note.

Hardtop versions avoid the cumbersome removable roof but lack the flamboyance of the topless roadsters. Those seeking maximum performance and prestige will want the feistier SVJ model. 

Sure, the 2020 Aventador is old by super-car standards and it's the opposite of practical, but we challenge anyone to find a Lamborghini that's more visceral.

What's New for 2020?

As the Aventador approaches the end of its life-cycle, which launched way back in 2011, Lamborghini looks to say arrivederci with a convertible version of the SVJ variant for 2020. 

The roofless one was introduced at the 2019 Geneva auto show. Although the SVJ roadster has the same 759-hp V-12 and 217-mph top speed as the coupe, it costs about $50,000 more.

    Plus, why spend more than half a million dollars on a V-12–powered exotic if you can't fully immerse yourself in its intoxicating soundtrack? 

    The roadster enables that. From there, Lamborghini provides a plethora of paint and interior options that allow us to make sure our Aventador won't be confused for one that movie stars and pro athletes drive.

    Engine, Transmission, and Performance

    The 2020 Aventador power-train hierarchy begins with a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 that develops 730 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque that is transmitted to the wheels via a seven-speed automated-manual transmission.

    This basic setup is shared among the three distinct variants, but the track-focused SVJ (which stands for Superveloce Jota) has various enhancements that unlock extra horsepower and torque that meet the pavement through all four wheels.

    Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

    With fuel-economy ratings in the single digits, the Aventador ranks among the least efficient cars on the market. The EPA expects all models to earn 9 mpg in the city and 15 mpg on the highway.

    Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

    In typical Lamborghini fashion, every Aventador supports a set of scissor doors that swing open upward. The low-slung interior is showing its age versus contemporary super-car rivals, but it can be fitted with a variety of premium materials and personalized options. 

    Still, the cabin will not hold many small items, and luggage space is limited. The dashboard features a digital gauge cluster that changes its layout with the drive modes—Strada, Sport, and Corsa; Ego mode allows you to personalize the settings for power-train, steering, and suspension.

    Infotainment and Connectivity

    Unfortunately, the Aventador's standard infotainment system is behind the times, with dated graphics and awkward integration. 

    In addition to voice commands and Apple CarPlay capability, the company offers a performance data recorder that saves lap times and track data. 

    An upgraded audio system that adds door-mounted sub-woofers and tweeters on the dashboard is also on the roster.

    Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

    The 2020 Aventador hasn't been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). 

    Lamborghini also skips the driver-assistance technology that encumber less extraordinary cars.

    Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

    Compared with most mainstream automakers, Lamborghini's power-train warranty doesn't look all that impressive. 

    However, its protection plans are competitive with high-end rivals such as Ferrari and can be enhanced by optional maintenance packages.

    •  Limited warranty covers 3 years or unlimited miles
    •  Power-train warranty covers 3 years or unlimited miles
    •  No complimentary scheduled maintenance.
