2018 Toyota Rush made its global debut in Indonesia

  • Nov 24, 2017

MANILA: Toyota never fails to keep the utility aspect at the top without compromising the performance of its vehicles and once again the automaker has reflected this unique characteristic in its second-generation Toyota Rush revealed in Indonesia. With its 7-seater configuration, the SUV has all the potential to stand against the likes of Hyundai Creta, Renault Captur, Nissan Kicks, and Mazda 2. Although all these SUVs have a powerful engine, advanced features, and premium cabin, none of them have a capacity to accommodate more than 5 people and that’s where the 2018 Rush has its upper hand.

2018 Rush Front

The 2018 Toyota Rush features a more aggressive stance with an Innova inspired front grille accompanied by sharp LED headlamps and daytime running lights.

The front bumper is restyled to make it more chunky with triangular housing for the circular fog lamps. With a 220mm ground clearance, taking on challenging terrain in this SUV will not be an issue. Other new features include electronic retractable mirrors with LED turn indicators, 16-inch alloy wheels, shark-fin antenna and a rear spoiler.

2018 Rush Cabin

The cabin has a simple layout with plastic used being of average quality, an area where Toyota really needs to improve. The dual-tone beige and black finish make the ambiance a bit pleasant while the other features include bottle holders on the door trims, a 7-inch infotainment system with reverse park assist camera, steering mounted controls and premium fabric on the seats (not leather).

2018 Toyota Rush Engine

Under the hood, a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine is offered with a maximum power output of 105 PS and peak torque of 140 Nm. The engine is further mated to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard and a 4-speed automatic is also available as an option. In terms of safety, the 2018 Rush is packed with 6 airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force Distribution System (EBD), hill start assist and stability control.

We have no information if Toyota Philippines is planning to bring the 2018 Rush to the Philippines anytime soon, this is something which we need to wait for. But, if Rush enters the local market, Hyundai  Creta will have one serious competitor in the segment.
