2020 Lamborghini Aventador Review

  • Howling V12 engine is worth the price of admission
  • Extroverted supercar styling
  • The last truly exotic supercar
  • Uncomfortable for long trips
  • Some flexibility required to get in and out
  • Nonexistent rear visibility
  • Convertible now available in the same 759-hp SVJ trim as the coupe
  • Part of the first Aventador generation introduced for 2012

Looking to make a statement and have a small fortune that you don't mind parting with? Perhaps the 2020 Lamborghini Aventador could be your next acquisition. This mid-engine V12 supercar is a monument to conspicuous consumption and otherworldly performance. After undergoing a substantial refresh last year, the Aventador returns mostly unchanged, though you can now get the higher-performing SVJ model as a convertible.

We're also very likely looking at the end of the line for the Aventador. It's been in production for nearly a decade and we expect to see a replacement model soon (possibly with a hybrid powertrain). That means if you're drawn to the Aventador's aesthetics and raucous 700-plus-horsepower engines, you might want to order yours now. It's unlikely that its successor will be any less flamboyant, especially since it will have to upstage other outrageous exotics from Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren and Aston Martin.

Which Aventador does Edmunds recommend?

There's no significant difference between the Aventador models except for price and bragging rights in your local Lambo club. We're certain most drivers will find the anything-but-standard Aventador S more than capable of turning heads and quickening your pulse. For most Lamborghini clients, the real decision comes down to the aesthetic choices. If there's one thing we'd add, it'd be the nose-lifting system (standard on the SVJ) that helps you avoid embarrassing driveway scrapes.

Lamborghini Aventador models

The 2020 Lamborghini Aventador is a two-passenger supercar that is available as either a coupe or convertible. The removable hardtop panels fit in the front cargo area (frunk) when not in use. It is offered in two trim levels: Aventador S and Aventador SVJ (Super Veloce Jota). The Aventador S models are powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine (730 horsepower, 509 lb-ft of torque), while SVJ models receive an output boost (759 hp, 531 lb-ft). These engines are paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.

Aventador S
Standard features for the entry-level Aventador are sparse and include:

  • Manually adjustable rear wing
  • Carbon-ceramic brake rotors
  • Rear-wheel steering
  • Power-folding, heated mirrors
  • Front and rear parking sensors (alert you to obstacles that may not be visible in front of or behind the vehicle when parking)
  • Adaptive suspension system
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Navigation system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Aventador SVJ
Stepping up to the SVJ adds a handful of items that include:

  • Active aerodynamics
  • Nose-lifting system (raises the front suspension to avoid scraping the chin spoiler on driveways)
  • Carbon-fiber interior elements
  • Faux suede-wrapped steering wheel
  • Carbon-fiber exterior elements (for the SJV 63 special edition)

The Aventador's standard feature list may seem unusually light for a vehicle costing upward of half a million dollars, but the options list is significantly longer. There is a dizzying array of exterior color choices, graphics, stripes, wheels, carbon-fiber embellishments, upholstery options and even seat-belt color selections. Some of the SVJ features are available on the Aventador S as options. Otherwise, heated seats are among the few typical add-ons.

Lamborghini Aventador vs. McLaren 720S

Both of these supercars attract attention and deliver thrilling performance, but there are some notable differences. The Aventador costs $100,000 more, enjoys a slight power advantage and has more traction thanks to all-wheel drive. The 720S doesn't sound that impressive until you wind it out toward redline, but it is easier to drive hard.

Lamborghini Aventador vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

At less than half the price of the Aventador, the AMG GT R is a relative bargain, but there are some trade-offs, at least for bragging rights. The GT R has a 150-plus-horsepower disadvantage and lacks the Aventador's flamboyant style. However, the Mercedes has a more convenient trunk and is well suited to both novice and experienced drivers.

Lamborghini Aventador vs. Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

James Bond doesn't drive a Lambo. That should be enough for some to pick the Aston Martin over the Aventador, but the details complicate the decision. The DBS costs $100,000 less yet makes a comparable amount of power. But it's more of a super-tourer than a supercar.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Lamborghini Aventador?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
