Highlights

The Toyota Rush compact SUV is in its second generation right now. It was launched in Indonesia last year with prices starting from Rs 11.5 lakh (IDR 239.9 million). If launched in India, this SUV will compete against the likes of the Hyundai Creta and the Renault Captur. However, that might not happen, here's why.

In Indonesia, the Rush is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine that makes 104PS of maximum power and 136Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties are handled by either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. Underpinned by a ladder frame-type platform, the Rush has a ground clearance of 220mm, which is 10mm more than the Duster's.

The Rush is available in Indonesia in two variants - G and TRD Sportivo - with both the transmission options. Its standard equipment list includes features like LED headlamps, alloy wheels, start/stop button, rear parking camera and tilt steering. The TRD Sportivo variant is better equipped and gets features like automatic climate control, keyless entry, touchscreen audio system, two-tone interior with soft-touch dashboard and TRD-specific cosmetic enhancements.

The big question is - will it come to India? Well, Toyota has expressed its intention of bringing in a compact SUV in India. And since it won’t be an India-specific product, it has to be one from the company’s global fleet only. So, the Rush is one of the SUVs Toyota can consider for India.

    Look and Style : From the available info, the modern suave and semi-mascular looks (resembling RAV-4, Toyota's another globally popular elite product) are expected to contribute a lot to its popularity, as the bar is already set high ny Renault Duster in the�Look & Style Department. Toyota would score still higher if it is able to offer "non plasticky" inner trims, by use of superior engineering plastics & synthetic fabrics like Hyundai is able to offer in its premium ... 32

    We are Toyota loyalists for last 18 years and have been waiting for an entry level SUV from the Japanese car maker. The wait seems over with Toyota Rush.Pros: Toyota quality and service is world class. Toyota cars are fuel efficient Service costs are affordable. Toyota has given excellent quality in Qualis, Innova, Fortuner Cons: The length remains an issue and these SUVs are a tough drive in the city. But this can be overlooked considering the quality and price. ... 14

Toyota Rush review

Things We Like in Rush

  • Toyota’s QDR - Since the Rush is a Toyota product, it is bound to be reliable as well
  • 7-seater - The Toyota Rush gets 3-row seating which not many compact SUVs get
  • Ground clearance - At 220mm, the Toyota Rush’ ground clearance is in the league of bigger SUVs

Things We Don't Like in Rush

  • Styling - The Rush doesn’t look like an imposing SUV from outside despite high ground clearance
  • Dilemma over India launch - There is still no clarity whether it is coming to India or not. In fact, Toyota might not launch the Rush in India at all.

CarDekho Verdict

The Toyota Rush belongs to the compact SUV segment, which starts from just under Rs 10 lakh in India but goes all the way up to over Rs 20 lakh. While products like the Hyundai Creta and the Renault Duster sit at the entry level end of this segment, SUVs like the Hyundai Tucson and Jeep Compass sit at the very top. Toyota is currently absent from this space although it has the Innova Crysta MPV that falls within this price bracket.

The Japanese carmaker showed positive intent towards bringing in a product in this segment at the recently concluded Auto Expo 2018 but didn’t give out information about which product it is going to bring to India. The news that the Rush is coming to India has been doing the rounds for quite some time now but it looks like Toyota might have a different plan for our market. There are two reasons we feel Toyota might not bring the Rush to India. One, it is styled more like an MPV rather than an SUV, although it rides quite high. Two, Toyota will have to make a separate production line for the Rush since it rides on a ladder-frame-type chassis that it doesn’t share with either the Innova Crysta or the Fortuner.

 

Toyota showed three compact SUV concepts last year based on the TNGA platform, which is a modular platform and underpins cars like the Prius and C-HR (compact SUV/crossover). The new generation of the Corolla Altis will also be based on this architecture. Keeping economy of scale in mind, Toyota might want to bring a compact SUV to India based on the TNGA - which leaves us with either the C-HR, the new RAV4, or some other SUV based on the three concepts the carmaker showcased last year.
