Never would have someone imagined the day would come when a Ferrari SUV would actually be made. Despite Porsche starting the performance SUV trend back in 2002, the market demand for such a class only skyrocketed in recent years. This pressure resulted in the Italian manufacturer from Maranello producing the Purosangue, which literally translates to “Thoroughbred”. Despite the brand finding it uneasy to call it an “SUV”, the Purosangue clearly shares the market with other high-performance vehicles like the Lamborghini Urus, the Aston Martin DBX, and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT Coupe. However, an SUV with the prancing horse on the grille won't harm the company's reputation.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

In addition, this is Ferrari's first four-door production model. Despite all the firsts, the Purosangue's naturally-aspirated V12 engine is reassuring and happens to be the aspect that keeps many purists happy. Ferrari, however, has not only put their thoughts into the performance of this midsize SUV but also the comfort that it provides. It’s very evident that equal importance was given when ideating the interior and the Purosangue houses 4 independent seats, providing each occupant a lounge-like experience. To help it drive as a Ferrari should, the engineers added a trick active suspension system to support the ride and handling. After all, Ferrari visualizes this SUV attacking the apex at the Fiorano circuit than trailing through courses at Big Bend National Park.


Features

The Purosangue comes with a plethora of luxurious and powerful features as standard equipment, but Ferrari also offers several extras that buyers might want to think about. Since the SUV is offered as a single-trim model, these options and customization make every Purosangue rolling out of the assembly line unique from one another. After a long day of driving along the coastline, massaging front seats could be a great add-on. Sunseekers might also be interested in the available electrochromic glass roof but there is also an available exposed carbon roof for those who prefer the stealthy fiber weave pattern on the SUV. While the pricing in the US hasn’t been officially confirmed, it is speculated that the Purosangue could cost over twice as much as its rivals at $400,000, making it a deal that segregates the casual buyers from the true Ferrari aficionados. We will however update the pricing once the official figures are announced. Ferrari also offers a personalized speccing session upon request if you are not satisfied with the limited colors and trims available on the standard configurator.

We Recommend

There isn’t any particular recommendation when it comes to picking the Purosangue as it comes in a single variant. However, we highly recommend getting a spec session booked with an official Ferrari team in order to customize the Purosangue according to your taste, and this experience will also make the SUV very personal.

Release Date

The Ferrari Purosangue was officially unveiled to the world in early September 2022. The SUV will however commence deliveries only in the second quarter of 2023.

Engine and Performance
8.0/10

The word “Turbocharger” would piss the purists and die-hard Ferrari enthusiasts off and for that reason, the Italian manufacturer chose not to use it on the Purosangue, leaving a 6.5L naturally-aspirated V-12 engine under the long hood. This high-revving engine pushes out 715 horsepower along with 528 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful SUV in its segment. Being a naturally-aspirated engine, drivers will get to feast their ears on the symphony flowing through the quad-exhaust tips. The power is delivered to all four wheels by an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The transmission sits at the rear end of the car, giving the Purosangue an almost perfect 49:51 weight distribution front to rear which helps it to handle more like a sports car than an SUV. The Purosangue also features 5 driving modes, namely Wet, Comfort, Sport, Race, and ESC-off. The power is delivered in varying intensity depending on the mode chosen while the adaptive suspensions adjust themselves to adapt to the selected mode.

There is no surprise as to which SUV is the most powerful here and the Ferrari is the only offering that comes with a V-12. This does not however covey the Purosangue to be the quickest vehicle in the lot as the turbocharged rivals find their peak power and torque well ahead in the rev range. Both the Lamborghini Urus and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT Coupe hit 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.1 seconds, making them the quickest. The Ferrari is almost as quick with a time of just 3.3 seconds, while the Aston Martin falls behind managing to do it in just under 4.0 seconds. However, the Ferrari costs as much as two Porsches and this makes the Purosangue an SUV that many would skip right away.

2023 Ferrari Purosangue Ride and Handling

Ferrari has shown no segregation between the Purosangue and its track-focused vehicles and has equipped the SUV with the latest iteration of vehicle dynamic control. This includes the independent 4-wheel steering of the Ferrari 812 Competizione and ABS ‘evo’ with a 6-way Chassis Dynamic Sensor from the Ferrari 296 GTB. The all-new Ferrari Active Suspension Technology controls the body roll while cornering and also makes sure there is enough tire contact patch over high-frequency bumps. Ferrari also introduced Hill Descent Control for the first time which allows the SUV to stay under control even while on steep inclines. The torque vectoring system on the front axle and electronically limited-slip differential balance the power delivered to each wheel and this helps the Purosangue corner at higher speeds without oversteering.

2023 Ferrari Purosangue Braking Performance

Another aspect that comes straight from the 296 GTB is the brakes but despite sharing the brake-by-wire ventilated braking system, both these cars would respond differently due to the different platforms and overall weight. Ferrari of course went with carbon ceramic discs to reduce brake fade and allow faster cooling. Though the performance and braking distance is unknown, it is most likely to give tough competition to the impressive line-up of rivals.

While the front brakes on the Purosangue might look the smallest, the rear discs are slightly larger than what the Lamborghini offers. The best performer here is the Porsche, which carries the largest set of brakes. The Porsche is also slightly lighter than the Urus and the DBX, giving it a clear win in terms of braking. This does not however mean that the Purosangue is going to fade away among the tough competition as Ferrari has been able to keep this SUV just under 4,500 lbs, making it the lightest offering. Though the braking distance is unknown, Ferrari would definitely achieve an impressive result and place itself in the second or third position with a figure falling close to that of the Urus.

Fuel Economy
4.0/10

The official EPA ratings are under homologation and haven’t been made official yet, but when has a naturally-aspirated V12 engine ever been fuel efficient? It is almost certain that the Purosangue will consume gas at a faster rate. Ferraris arch rival Lamborghini offers just 12 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway. The Purosangue is expected to push out similar figures and will also carry a large gas tank to make up for the low figures.

None of these vehicles are designed to take you to far-off places even though they are capable of doing so. The only catch is that you would have to spend a lot more on fuel when compared to a regular SUV. The most fuel-efficient vehicle in the group happens to be the Porsche but the Ferrari could possibly hold better range as it comes with the largest gas tank in the lot. Lamborghini takes the last spot with its smaller tank and low gas mileage, closely followed by the Aston Martin.

Interior
8.0/10

The Purosangue is the only legitimate 4-passenger vehicle in the Ferrari stable and comes fitted with 4 individual bucket seats as standard, leaving no room for a 5th person to squeeze in. Ferrari went above and beyond to give the Purosangue a distinctive interior. The cabin of the Ferrari SUV offers a whole new experience because the Italian automaker worked hard to make it more engaging for both the driver and the passengers. A symmetrical layout and a complete overhaul of the dashboard make the Purosangue different from all the other Ferraris. The steering wheel and the instrument panel, which resemble those in the Ferrari SF90 Stradale, are the only interior components that are similar. It receives the same capacitive touch controls for various tasks on the steering wheel. However, Ferrari has made minor indentations to segregate each touch control on the steering to avoid confusion. A central console with storage space and a pop-out dial for the air conditioning and ventilated seats is provided for the second row as well. A full-length electrochromic glass sunroof that illuminates at the touch of a button will astound your passengers. Although the Ferrari Purosangue's luxurious leather isn't exactly kid-friendly, the optional "bulletproof" floor covering struck a wonderful mix between elegance and practicality. It looks amazing and is highly durable because it is made from the same ballistic fabric that is used for military uniforms.

While most brands have been shy to unveil the interior room, Aston Martin keeps information transparent with rather impressive figures. The DBX holds ample room in the front and rear rows while. However, despite not having all the figures, it shouldn’t be hard to guess the least spacious SUV and that happens to be the Purosangue. This does not necessarily mean the Ferrari is cramped but it is the only SUV that cannot seat a 5th passenger. Moving to storage, the DBX takes the lead with an impressive 22.3 cu-ft trunk but the Ferrari takes another dip here with a tiny 16.7 cu-ft trunk, which according to the Italian manufacturer is the biggest they’ve made. Porsche also joins the league of sub 20 cu-ft trunk space, which is low considering they are SUVs.

Some standout interior features on the 2023 Ferrari Purosangue include

  • Heated and ventilated seats
  • Electrochromic sunroof
  • Front seat massager
  • Leather upholstery
  • Military-grade carpet material
  • Recycled polyester cabin liners.

How intuitive is the 2023 Ferrari Purosangue infotainment system?

There is a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster that displays all the drive information and performance stats. A secondary 10.2-inch screen is present in front of the front passenger which displays media information that can also view performance stats. This gives the interior a distinctive dual-cockpit design. Although an in-dash navigation system is not available, Ferrari argues that most people would just use their smartphones for such a service. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standard, which is a first-ever for a Ferrari and comes with a wireless charging pad for a mobile phone. Another first for a Ferrari is the standard fit 21-speaker Burmester 3D high-end surround sound system that produces crisp notes with a very low distortion rate.

Some of the standout infotainment features on the 2023 Ferrari Purosangue are

  • 10.2-inch Digital gauge cluster
  • 10.2-inch front passenger touchscreen
  • Wireless smartphone charging pad
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • 21-speaker Burmester sound system
  • Satellite radio
Exterior
9.0/10

The major new element for a Ferrari is the 2 additional doors and they managed to do it in style. The rear hatches are suicide doors and when closed, the Purosangue appears to be a 2-door vehicle, giving it a clean appearance. The enclosed wheel arches with air vents for decreased drag are home to 22-inch front, 23-inch rear rims, and clearly, low-profile tires that enclose ceramic brakes. Without a question, the Purosangue's overall body design is stunning, especially in this exterior color option of a production-ready silver shade. All the way from its long hood to the slender roofline and down to its close-fitting tail, there is an uninterrupted flow being followed. Additionally, the sleek body shape deftly hides a number of aero aids. For instance, Ferrari's take on the current split headlamp design places the LED DRLs in front, flanked by air vents, with the primary headlights lower, above enormous air ducts. There isn't the typical upright SUV-like stance. The tail lights will correctly bring to mind the Ferrari Roma, and the standard carbon roof can be opted for in an exposed finish or with the glass roof based on your preference. The Purosangue also does not have a rear windscreen wiper but the suspended spoiler creates a massive air vent that directs air onto the rear windshield at the right speed and force, scrubbing away all the moisture. Similarly, all the vents and ducts on the Purosangue serve a purpose and are functional, unlike the ones found on some rivals. Another element that catches the eye on the rear are the quad-exhaust tips which can be opted in 3 different finishes based on your choice.

Though the Ferrari looks like a car that sits lower compared to its rivals, it offers a better ground clearance than the Lamborghini and Porsche. The lower height of the SUV helps keep the center of gravity within optimal levels to allow agile maneuvering. The largest vehicle here is the Aston Martin, which is very evident from its taller stance, but the Urus beats it in terms of the overall length. Despite these vehicles not being categorized along with serious off-road SUVs, the DBX comes with a commendable 7.4-inches of ground clearance. Ferrari also allows for a provisional lift to increase the height by an inch whenever needed, making it a lot more practical on rough paths.

Some of the standout exterior features include

  • 22-inch front and 23-inch rear alloy wheels
  • Virtual rear screen wiper
  • LED DRLs and headlamps
  • Aero elements all throughout
  • Rear suicide doors
  • Quad exhaust tips
Safety
8.0/10

Though the Purosangue is new for 2023 and there aren’t any crash test results available, it is unlikely for a premium brand to send their cars to NHTSA or IIHS to get wrecked. However, several driver-assistance functions, such as automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, and adaptive cruise control, are standard on the Purosangue. Though suicide doors are generally considered structurally less safe than a traditional setup, Ferrari put in a lot of time to meet the safety requirement to get them approved. This truly showcases the level of commitment to making the Purosangue a safe vehicle without compromising on the style.

Some of the standout safety features available with the 2023 Ferrari Purosangue are

  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Auto high beam
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Lane departure warning
  • Blind-spot monitor
Competition
7.0/10

2023 Ferrari Purosangue vs 2023 Lamborghini Urus

The rivalry between these Italian manufacturers have existed forever and it never gets old. While the Ferrari is a much more powerful vehicle on paper, both these SUVs push out a very similar 0-60 timing. The real difference comes in terms of the way the power is delivered as the Lamborghini has all the power served right on a tap, while the Purosangue holds the everlasting charm of a high revving naturally-aspirated V12. Design is an aspect that differentiates both these vehicles as the Urus follows the traditional angular design while Ferrari sticks to a more fluidic approach for the Purosangue.

2023 Ferrari Purosangue vs 2023 Aston Martin DBX

Both these SUVs differ a lot in terms of their characteristics. The Aston Martin DBX is a well-equipped SUV that houses a lot of premium materials and features, denoting the brand leaning more towards comfort than performance. Though Ferrari paid extra attention to comfort for the Purosangue, performance has always stayed on top of the priority list. The Ferrari definitely is the more fun and driver-focused car and though the DBX carries a plush cabin, the dual-cockpit layout of the Purosangue is drool-worthy.

2023 Ferrari Purosangue vs 2023 Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT Coupe

It has been almost 20 years for Porsche in the performance SUV segment. Though the Purosangue is a late entrant, Ferrari has managed to stand up to the hype and wait. The Cayenne Turbo GT Coupe is a very potent rival with ample power and performance. Ferrari falls slightly behind in terms of acceleration but take these SUVs on a track and the new adaptive suspension on the Ferrari paired with its lighter body will make your cheeks hurt. However, the massive difference is the pricing and one would be able to get two Porsches for the price of a single Purosangue.

Final Verdict
7.0/10

Ferrari has been able to deliver a banger for being a first-timer in the SUV space. The Purosangue is also the only naturally-aspirated V12 Ferrari that is available for purchase in the line-up. While the so-called “four-door sports car” might not suitable for off-road use, the Purosangue offers every bit of tech and feature necessary to go around a track without feeling like you’re driving a massive vehicle. Despite the Purosangue being an expensive purchase, it stands out from its rivals in almost every possible manner. The purposeful design on the interior and exterior is unlike any other offering in the segment and it is only recommended to look at the rivals if all you want to do is save some money.
