Rush Pros & Cons

Things We Like in Rush

Compared to the small and old school looking previous generation Toyota Rush, the new version looks absolutely modern and eye-catching. The new Rush looks quite striking with angular front headlamps, wide front grille, rugged side profile with black cladding, roof rails and machined alloy wheels and the sporty rear profile with wide and horizontal tail lamps. All these design elements make the Rush feel like it is a vehicle from one category above.

The new generation Toyota Rush now features the additional flexibility of two extra seats in the third row, making it a seven-seater compact MUV. These extra two seats have a flexible folding arrangement, thus opening up a cavernous boot space at the rear. At the same time, there are multiple cup holders and small storage spaces in the entire cabin, making it a practical place to be in.

The previous generation Toyota Rush was known for its almost indestructible feel, and this new version of the Rush feels the same way as well. The ever trustable reliability factor of brand Toyota comes into play, giving the owners of the Rush an extra peace of mind when it comes to the after-sales period of owning it.

Things We Dont Like in Rush

While the Toyota Rush looks very striking and contemporary on the outside, the fact that it has been moderately styled on the inside makes for confused opinions. The too subtle styling on the inside with boring looking instrument console and center console dilutes the overall experience.

The new Rush is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine, which is not as exciting in its power delivery as one would expect from it. The linear power delivery is good for comfortable and effortless driving but is not as engaging to drive, which might be a small turn off for enthusiasts.

 

Recent Updates of Rush

The latest version of the Rush available in the market looks more elegant and eye-catching than its predecessor. With angular headlamps, wide front grille and roof rails, the Toyota Rush stands out from the crowd with pride. This 7-seater SUV is powered by a 2NR-VE 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine that delivers 105 PS of power and 136 Nm of torque. Inside the Rush, the passengers are welcomed by a well laid out cabin space that gets a contemporary design. There is enough space for all the rows and the presence of rear AC vents adds an extra element of comfort for the passengers. For a vehicle of this size, the safety needs to be equally advanced and reliable. Thankfully, Toyota has equipped the Rush with modern safety features like 6 airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, Emergency Stop Signal, Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Hill-Start Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear-Cross Traffic Alert and Pre-Collision system which are backed by a 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating.

Overview

Introduced first as the Daihatsu Terios, the Toyota Rush has been the go-to compact SUV in the Southeast-Asian auto industry from quite some time. The evolution of the Rush from being a 5-seater to a compact SUV that can fit in 7 people has been remarkable. There is a new 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine with auto start/stop in the new Rush. With Toyota’s latest 360-T (Trust & Technology), the 2018 Toyota Rush is full of features and is available in 5 different paint schemes. Starting at RM 93,000, the Rush will take on the Honda BR-V in the Malaysian market.

Interior & Features

With everyone complaining about the dated interior of the last-gen Rush, Toyota has listened to the prayers and given the interior of the 2018 Rush a reconstruction. Instead of looking dated, the new updated interior now looks more symmetrical and is of contemporary design. The interior that is majorly black in color is very well complemented by silver and chrome accents. The leather upholstery adds to the premium touch.  Toyota has followed the similar approach as before and the seating arrangement in the new Rush is the same 2:3:2. The middle row seats are of 60:40 split type with the third-row displaying 50:50 configuration. There ample of space at the back, i.e., 217-litre when the third row backrest is folded down and 514-litre when tumbled up. Taking care of the cooling department is a single-zone air-conditioner with rear-vents for the passengers sitting at the back. There are a total of 13 cup-holders for the convenience along with 4 electric outlets. The infotainment system is a 6.8-inch DVD-AVX head unit with screen mirroring function and 6 speakers. You also get features like Toyota AutoTag built-in SmartTAG, keyless entry and start, and digital video recorder (DVR). The steering wheel is a 3-spoke one with audio controls mounted on it. The instrument console comes with analogue speedo and tacho along with digital indicators for fuel, and others.

Exterior

The 2018 Toyota Rush is a completely different looking vehicle than the last-gen model. The exterior has been redesigned, and it now gives the Rush a muscular and appealing look. The front end of the new Rush is inspired from the bigger sibling, the Toyota Fortuner. Sitting between the slim LED headlamps and notched indicators along with LED DRLs is a tapered, four-slat grille. Looking below the headlamps and the grille, you see circular fog lamps, faux inlets, and intake in the centre. A fresh “X-Design” is formed with the combination of the blacked-out and body-colored areas. When viewed from the side, the body cladding on the 2018 Rush adds to its MPV-SUV look. There is also a crease that starts from the front and goes all way to the back before converging near the tail lamps. The 17-inch alloy wheels fitted with 215/60 tyres further enhance the rugged appearance. At the rear, the number-plate is placed on the tailgate. The taillights are of wrap-around type and are met by black window trims. Along with more cladding at the back, there’s also a skid-plate present like at the front. And for precise dimensions, the 2018’s offering by Toyota measures 4,435 mm long, 1,695 mm wide, 1,705 mm tall with a wheelbase measuring 2,685 mm.

Ride & Handling

With its capabilities of conquering all kinds of battlegrounds, the Rush comes with MacPherson strut with coil spring and stabiliser bar up front and 5-link with coil spring and lateral od at the rear. Presence of an all-electric power steering makes sure there are no hiccups while maneuvering the SUV-MPV crossover. The Rush gets regular ventilated disc brakes at the front with drum brakes handling the responsibilities at the rear.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The 2018 Toyota Rush gets a 2NR-VE 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine with automatic start/stop function. It is the same mill that you can find under the hoods of the Avanza and the Perodua Myvi. For better fuel efficiency, Toyota has added dual VVT-i. The new mill produces 105 PS at 6,000 rpm and 136 Nm of peak torque at 4,200 rpm while giving 15.6 kmpl of fuel efficiency. A four-speed torque converter automatic is assigned to deliver the power to the rear wheels.

Braking & Safety

After all the major overhauls in every single department of the vehicle, Toyota has left no stone unturned in making sure the 2018 Rush is as safe as ever. The long list of safety features includes ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, Emergency Stop Signal, Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Hill-Start Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear-Cross Traffic Alert, and Pre-Collision system. Adding to all these features are Parking Sensors (front and rear), Auto Door Locks, 6 SRS Airbags, and ISOFIX Child Safety Mounts. Not to forget, the Rush also packs in an Immobiliser, Cabin Sensor, and a Siren with backup battery. Plus, a 5-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating puts that extra cherry on the cake.

Verdict

A new and great design, that not only is rugged but looks attractive as well has put in a new life altogether in the 2018 Toyota Rush. Complementing the new looks is a fuel-efficient engine suited for all kind of roads. And with the dated interior finally updated with a contemporary one, the Rush is back, and that too big time. Go with the family for a shopping stint in the city or take them for an adventure in the countryside, the Rush is the mate you’d love to have along.

    A well rounded machine

    The Rush is one of those cars where when you get used to it, it is hard to go back to anything else. The sheer practicality that it offers can be matched by very few cars and for a family, that is just brilliant. As many others feel, the only real complaint is the engine, which could do with more Read More

    A SYNONYM TO COMFORT AND RELIABILITY

    When my parents decided to move in with me, it was about time for me to shift from a sedan to a SUV. We zeroed on to the Toyota Rush because of the reliability and comfort associated with the brand and also because the car looked amazing.
