The new multi-talented SUV: Toyota Rush has successfully fused dynamic and sharp styling at a competitive price.
Designed to traverse a variety of terrains, Rush has a high approach and its wide departure angles enable it to navigate easily wherever you want.
Keyless entry allows easy access to the car, while Push Start adds a sporty feel to the Rush. Bluetooth® is standard, along with steering wheel controls.
Being a 7 seater, Rush has three rows of seats. First two rows are able to comfortably accommodate occupants, but the third row is suitable for children or smaller passengers. If you opt for the GX trim, each row of seats gets an accessory socket for convenient charging of smart phones and other devices which is a big plus in today’s electronic age.
The trunk of the car is configured to carry a variety of loads but doesn’t offer much cargo space if seating all 7 passengers.
Rush has a smaller fuel tank (45 liters only) than most Toyota SUVs but an enviable fuel economy of 16.3 km per liter that other SUV’s can only dream of. This is mainly because Rush is a not an all wheel 4×4 SUV.
Engine: 1.5 Liter 4 cylinders
Horsepower: 103 Bhp
Torque: 138 Nm
Drive System: 4×2 Rear Wheel Drive
Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic
Seating Capacity: 7 seater

While Toyota Rush has borrowed a lot from Toyota Avanza and perhaps Toyota Fortuner as well, it does have a look of its own. Its high body lines give Rush a sporty look and create an illusion of appearing taller than it actually is. The hood of the car is short just like its grille but high placed LED head lamps, large LED tail lamps and 17-inch wheels lend it a bit of a strong character.
The vented front bumpers also project a sense of toughness in the 2020 Toyota Rush.
Overall Toyota Rush is more fun-looking than its elder brother Toyota Fortuner.
On first look, the cabin does not look aesthetically pleasing, nor premium.
The steering wheel also isn’t made from premium materials, but the built-in audio controls are easy to use. The instrument panel is pretty basic as well.The front and second row seats are nice and plushy, so getting stuck in Dubai traffic might not be so bad after all. It feels like some extra layers of foam have been added to the seat cushion to create a bucket seat feeling.Headroom and legroom up front and in the second row is spacious.
The third row gets a bit tight but thats with all mid size SUVs. Each row of seats has an accessory socket for convenient charging of smart phones and other devices
The EX trim has 4 while the GX trim has an 8 speaker system
