The Rush 2023 is Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP)’s entry to the local competitive multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) segment. Considering its relatively large size and affordable pricing, the MPV is regarded by some as an entry-level SUV to the Japanese car brand. Toyota Rush Price in the Philippines ranges from PHP 983,000 to PHP 1,176,000 with 3 different variants. Under the hood, it is powered by a 1.5-liter 2NR-VE inline-4 DOHC gasoline engine that makes 102 hp and 134 Nm of torque. This engine can be connected to either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Dimensions-wise, the Rush spans 4,435 mm in length, 1,695 mm in width, and 1,705 mm in height. In the local market, this vehicle from Toyota Philippines competes against the likes of the Mitsubishi Xpander and Honda BR-V.

There are many SUV-like features that the Toyota Rush offers such as a relatively high ground clearance rated at 220 mm and its new seating configuration that makes seven as standard across all variants. It is considered as one of the best value for money especially for those who wish for a relatively affordable family car. In other markets, the Toyota Rush is called the Daihatsu Terios due to the Japanese automaker's partnership with Daihatsu Motor.
