Many of you certainly know that the Toyota Rush is a rebadged Daihatsu Terios which was a small compact sport utility vehicle even before this type of vehicle was defined. Now, this 5 (or 7)-seater comes into a wide range of design tweaks from the sibling Toyota Fortuner, portraying an SUV-MPV shape like its rival Mitsubishi Xpander.
The Toyota Rush is a rebadged Daihatsu Terios
In the local vehicle industry, the Toyota Rush has created a lot of hype before its official debut. In Toyota family, it’s pitched as a baby Fortuner and is served as an entry-level SUV. Here, the Rush is offered in two seating configurations and three variants: 5-seats (the 1.5E MT, 1.5E AT) and 7-seat (the 1.5G AT).

Well, as mentioned, the Toyota Rush exterior strongly resembles a little Fortuner. With overall dimensions of 4,435 mm x 1,695 mm x 1,705 mm (L x W x H), the Rush is obviously bigger than other SUVs in its class. Even, it’s much larger than the Terios. Plus, a 2,685-mm wheelbase helps create more room for the inside. Notably, it is a high ground clearance of 220 mm that makes the Japanese brand mark it as an SUV in lieu of an MPV like the Xpander from the countryman.

Broadly, the outer design is given lots of sporty elements. In detail, a dark grille surrounds the front fascia and is bordered by sweeping LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights. These features sit high above a bulging and hefty bumper incorporating small fog lamps in the intakes.

Side profile is decked with 16-inch swanky alloy wheels (a bigger set of 17-inch wheels are exclusively given to the top-end G trim).
Taking everything into consideration, the 2018 Toyota Rush exterior is better-looking than its brother Fortuner.

Toyota possesses too many 7-seaters and needless to say, it’s unnecessary for the company to look far for inner inspiration. Correspondingly, the Toyota Rush interior is inspired by the Toyota Innova and of course, the Fortuner.
On the dashboard, materials give us a soft feel
On the dashboard, materials give us a soft feel. More strikingly, a 7-inch touchscreen is placed there which is linked with 6 or 8 speakers (depending on particular trims). Also worth of note is Weblink for Android and iOS, apart from the usual connectivity options. Three accessory outlets are on tap for charging your devices.
The 3-spoke steering wheel is adjustable for tilt, albeit not telescopic, and comes with audio controls. Parking yourself in the driver’s seat and you will be provided with a commanding view of the road.
While the 2018 Toyota Rush interior of the E variant offers 5 seats, the higher-end model G is coddled with an additional seat row
As to space, while the E variants have 5 seats, the higher-end model G is coddled with an additional seat row. Though the 7-seater’s boot is just limited to 213 L when compared to a more cavernous 514-L trunk in the 5-seater, it is refunded with roof rails and dual A/C.
The Rush 2018 shares the hardware with the Sienta, yet it gets some updates. The 1.5L inline-4 2NR-VE engine with Dual VVT-i can generate 136 Nm at 4,200 rpm and 104 PS at 6,000 rpm. With this heart, the gas mileage has been improved by up to 10%. Transmission choices are a 4-speed automatic and a 5-speed manual. In any case, power flows to the back. This automotive layout separates the Rush from other automobiles in the market that allows the wheels to eke out more power in a more efficient way, especially when taking to hills.

Power steering paves the way for maneuverability while the suspension system is equipped for the uttermost comfort. Other than that, the SUV also has got a tight 5.2-m turning radius for a smooth handling.

The motor vehicle manufacturer of Japan has so far taken a new approach to give out safety features across the lineup. This is understandable as Toyota always wishes to build the safest vehicles on the roads and the Rush needs no introduction.

All the trims are armed with ABS, EBD, 6 airbags, vehicle stability control, reverse camera, parking sensors, hill start assist, emergency stop signal, immobilizer with alarm and traction control. Thanks to such high levels of safety stuff, the Rush has got a 5-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating, pushing back the Mitsubishi Expander when it comes to safety.
The Toyota Rush cost ranges from P948,000 to P1,070,000. In general, this price is comparable to its close rival. But obviously, considering all it has to offer, the Rush is definitely worth your hard-earned money.
