The all-new Toyota Rush was introduced in the Philippines on May 4, 2019. The small MPV was expected to compete with the Honda BR-V and Mitsubishi Xpander, which dominates the high-riding and bold-looking MPV segment. Toyota Rush is available in two major variants – the 5-seater 1.5 E and the 7-seater 1.5 G.
The exterior design of the Toyota Rush is inspired by the Toyota Fortuner. However, in terms of size, the Toyota Rush stands in between the Avanza and Innova.
Aside from the imposing exterior design, all Toyota Rush variants are equipped with LED headlights and taillights that come with LED guide lines, front fog lamps, rear spoiler, and striking shark-fin antenna. The 1.5 G top variant features roof rails, smoked-chrome grille, and a set of 17-inch wheels. On the other hand, the E variants got shiny chromes and a neat set of 16-inch alloys.
The Toyota Rush is available in six color options: White, Bronze Mica Metallic, Dark Red Mica Metallic, Bordeaux Mica, Silver Mica Metallic, and Black Metallic.
Since the Toyota Rush is an entry-level SUV, the interior is mostly dominated by hard but durable plastics. The top ranging variants got leather gear shift knob and steering wheel. Lower trim levels got polyurethane instead.
Another notable feature inside the Toyota Rush is the white accents on the doors and dashboard decorated with faux stitches.
The Toyota Rush offers an ample amount of cabin space both in the front and second row. However, the third row is best fit for kids and not-so-tall occupants. There are lots of storage spaces and cubby holes inside the Rush.
In terms of tech features, a 7-inch touchscreen display infotainment system is available in all variants of the Toyota Rush. It comes with Bluetooth, USB, and Weblink connectivity for both Android and IOS. Each variant is also equipped with a reverse camera, reverse sensors, Eco indicator, push-start ignition, audio controls on the steering wheel, and an LED multi-information display.
The sound produced by the entertainment system is delivered via six speakers on E variants. The high G variant is equipped with eight speakers and additional features such as reverse camera display with guidelines, power-retractable side mirrors, and automatic air conditioning.
For additional security, the Toyota Rush comes with power door locks and central locking.
The Toyota Rush rides a ladder-frame chassis similar to the Avanza. It is built on the Daihatsu F800, which is the third generation Daihatsu Terios platform.
The front suspension is handled by a McPherson Strut and four-link suspension for the rear setup. The stopping power is produced via disc brakes on the front wheels and drum brakes for the rear wheels.
Powering the Toyota Rush is a 1.5-liter 2NR-VE Dual VVT-I gasoline engine the delivers 102 hp and 134 Nm of torque. The gasoline engine can be paired with either 4-speed A/T or 5-speed M/T.
