The recent Toyota model in the Philippines to get the GR-S treatment is the Rush. While TMP has yet to officially announce the model’s arrival, the Rush GR-S is now available in the Philippines with a price tag of Php 1,176,000.

The Rush GR-S is not yet shown on TMP’s website as of this writing but our insider source among Toyota dealers said that it is now available, and it is already on display in select showrooms. Our source added that the Rush GR-S now sits as the new top-of-the-line trim as the Rush G got dropped from the model’s variant lineup.

This means that the Rush variant lineup in the Philippines is now composed of the GR-S, E AT (Php 1,052,000), and E MT (Php 1,012,000). Previously, the axed G variant retails at Php 1,100,000. As such, the new top-spec Toyota Rush GR-S gets a Php 76,000 price bump.

The Toyota Rush GR-S features a more assertive-looking demeanor due to the addition of GR-S-specific trims such as side body molding. It also gets a revamped front and rear bumper that gives the Rush a bolder presence. To add, the Rush GR-S sits on a set of 17-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the seven-seater Rush GR-S is integrated with an updated seven-inch infotainment touchscreen that has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It then has an eight-speaker sound system, which is a similar setup to the axed G variant. Aside from those, the Rush GR-S has two 12V sockets, and a smart keyless entry system.

Toyota Rush

The Rush 2022 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.
