Toyota is well renowned for its impeccable and sturdy nature of vehicles, which makes it one of the most successful car makers in the world. With a great fan following in India, Toyota always ensures that they bring out their latest acquisitions in the Indian market. But one such car which has become a mystery for all the Indian petrolheads is the Toyota Rush. This car was first rumored to be launched in 2018, but even in the late end of 2019, there are no signs of any road test whatsoever. But as usual, Toyota always manages to catch attention with its unparalleled technology and value for money prospects. Let us closely look at what the car is all about.
Toyota Rush is 7-seater MPV, which is currently being sold in countries like South Africa and Thailand. With extremely urban dynamics and styling bits, this car is appropriately called the “Baby Fortuner.” With it’s an amazing resemblance to the mighty Fortuner, it might be well received by the customers who are a big enthusiast of fortuners but can’t spend that much moolah! Toyota Rush is loaded with features that would definitely stand it apart from the rest of its rivals like Renault Captur, Hyundai Creta, and other MPV’s in India. With a refined 104ps of power from the 1.5-litre VVT engine from Toyota, it assures a decent thrust of power as well.
Toyota Rush certainly looks mean with a more suvish- stance than that of MPV. Chrome linings on the front grille with a menacing side frame, and Running ORVM’s certainly makes this car a crowd-puller. A cluster of Lights in the Rear end of the car with sharp and sleek cutting edge lights makes this car a looker! With 4420 mm of length, it is marginally bigger than other rival cars in the segment, which includes Creta and Captur as well. Only Honda BRV comes close, but the ground clearance of 200 mm is certainly the best in the segment, which can also compete with other expensive SUV like Mahindra XUV 500. This certainly would make the enthusiasts intrigued about the car.
The interiors of the car in the foreign market are slightly upgraded, but most of them would be available for the Indian variant as well. Toyota always gives lavish quality and durability of material for the interior styling. This car would be equipped with decent Chrome bits alongside steering, with Toyota’s iconic touchscreen infotainment screen carrying out other processes as well. The car has a massive cabin space and seems to be the best in this segment. Leather upholstery on the seat covers would certainly ooze class.
Safety parameters are also loaded in the car, with 6 Airbags, ABS with EBD, Traction control system, Hill-Assist, Rear Parking Sensors, Engine immobilzers, ISOFIX, and other incredible elements would certainly make it a fully-loaded vehicle. This car would be priced between 10-15 Lakhs, and Toyota’s latest reliable sources have claimed that the car might launch in the middle of 2020. The launch was previously scheduled for initial stages in 2021. All in all, Toyota Rush certainly makes for an ideal MPV in India.
