It will be built on the upcoming Cayenne platform.

Yep Cayenne also shares that platform. Extract from motor authority website:

The new Cayenne is due out in 2017, as a 2018 model, and when it arrives it should offer improved dynamics, fuel efficiency and performance thanks to the SUV version of the Volkswagen Group’s MLB platform. The platform made its debut in the 2017 Audi Q7 and has since appeared in the 2017 Bentley Bentayga and 2018 Audi Q5. It will also appear in the next VW Touareg as well as Lamborghini’s Urus SUV.

The platform must be adjustable because the Bentayga felt bigger than the Q7 and the Urus is smaller than the Q7.

Yep and the Q5 is smaller than all of them. It's a fully modular platform. Massive cost savings for a company recovering from a rather large series of financial issues following a few little fibs about diesel emissions….

That's true, the Q5 is so much smaller, the platform was designed before the diesel scandal.

And….of course…I should have never posted that image.
I'll show myself out…

Update: Top Gear's editor-at-large was apparently somewhat mistaken. The vehicle that he photographed was not a real Urus test mule. A Lamborghini dealer in Nürnberg, Germany – about 103 miles (166 kilometers) north of Munich – created the model from a Q7 as a way to build buzz for the Urus.

Interestingly though, lambo posted a video this week about its v12 range.
