Toyota's latest offering is now here and is set to take a slice of the lucrative mini seven-seater. Serving as their smallest SUV, the all-new Rush combines MPV practicality with SUV ruggedness. Unlike its contemporaries which are mostly front-wheel drive, the Rush is a rear-wheel drive seven- / five-seater. It gets its power from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that can be connected to either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual. All variants come with a touchscreen infotainment system, six airbags, anti-lock brakes, hill-start assist and parking sensors. High-grade versions come with three rows of seats while the entry-level and mid-range models come with two rows of seating.
With the country now going gaga over SUVs and crossovers, Toyota decided now was the time to introduce their own contender in the lucrative compact seven-seater crossover scene: the all-new Rush. Featuring the underpinnings of the Avanza wrapped in a sleek and stylish body, the Toyota Rush combines MPV practicality with SUV capability. But what makes the Rush different from the Avanza besides having its own exterior design?
