Toyota Rush - Maintenance guide

Gone are the days when seven-seaters defined multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs). The three-row SUVs have replaced MPVs as the modern-day family vehicles.  Positioned above the compact models, the seven-seaters are spacious, comfortable and rugged. While several names pop out when speaking of seven-seater SUVs, Toyota Rush is a popular choice in the segment, with high credibility. The current version was introduced in October 2018, featuring multiple visual and mechanical updates. It is available in just two variants including 1.5G and 1.5S.
