Wani Roslan

The Toyota Rush is an authentic SUV that elevates the lifestyle of people from different walks of life. Engineered for robustness and designed for practicality, it provides an exciting and satisfying drive.

Built with rear-wheel drive for a greater variety of terrain conditions, the Toyota Rush offers better traction for uphill climbs when carrying heavier loads. On top of that, this SUV is also practical for an urban city drive.

With its image as an urban SUV, the Rush is rugged and showcases active lifestyles, combined with the comfort of a passenger car with its spaciousness, high seating position and greater ground clearance of an SUV.

With impressive performance and uncompromised safety, the Toyota Rush is powered by a 1.5-litre in-line four-cylinder petrol engine with Dual Variable Valve Timing-Intelligent (VVT-i) that provides enough power and good fuel efficiency.

The SUV is equipped with six SRS airbags as the dual front, side and curtain airbags optimise safety and provide total peace of mind for the driver and family wherever they go.

The interior of the Toyota Rush

A combination of advanced safety systems plus computer-aided engineering and design has enabled the Toyota Rush to score the highest overall rating of five stars from ASEAN NCAP (for both adult and child occupant protection categories).

Another safety feature is the Hill-Start Assist Control, which comes standard across all Rush variants. This helps in preventing the vehicle from rolling backward when starting on a steep or slippery incline.

In terms of its exterior, the sleek and calm image and design attracts a wider audience. The streamlined LED headlamps give better visibility, provide increased road visibility and complement the sporty front design.

Meanwhile, the rear combination of LED lamps, which are bright and intense, provide a perfect complement to the back of the vehicle. In addition, its fog lamps act as driving support which illuminates the edges of the road to help the driver make safe progress during foul weather such as heavy rain or fog.

The Rush is also equipped with a rear roof spoiler with high mount stop lamp that acts as braking support. This high mounted stop lamp lets following drivers know when the owners are braking for added safety.

Another feature is the class top ground clearance (220mm), which provides best in class
submersion height.

The capacity of the vehicle, which has a seating layout is 2-3-2 over three rows, provides easy access to the third row. It is a seven-seater SUV carrying the tagline, ‘Thrill For Seven’. Three rows of seats can comfortably accommodate adult occupants, and there is enough interior width and height for plenty of cargo.

If one has a variety of load to fit on to the Toyota Rush, it’s not a problem, as the vehicle has double-folding seats with a versatile seat arrangement. It also has large cargo space which gives added convenience as the well-designed seat layout and accessories enable multipurpose use for greater SUV enjoyment. The cargo capacity is 217 litres but when required, the volume can be expanded to 514 litres by folding the rear seats.

For the interior, the Toyota Rush has also been elevated to be more advanced with a premium look and feel that comes with high value-added features, making it even better value for money.

The two-tone interior design has a styling concept that is modern and premium with high-end quality finishing. The SUV is also equipped with front and rear air-conditioning with adjustable rear cooler mounted in the rear ceiling providing comfort for all passengers.

Meanwhile, other innovative features include 13 cup holders as well as a push start button providing convenience at a touch available for both mid and high spec.

The public can get an opportunity to test drive the Toyota Rush which is available at the Toyota Showroom in Gadong, Bunut and KB. Customers are welcome to book early for a test drive via www.toyota.com.bn.
