Highlights

Toyota is all set to introduce the second-gen Rush compact SUV in South Africa, another RHD (right-hand drive) market after its initial introduction in Indonesia in 2017. In Indonesia, the Toyota Rush is priced from IDR 239.9 million, which roughly equates to Rs 11.5 lakh here. Price-wise, the body-on-frame Toyota Rush goes up against SUVs like the Hyundai Creta, Renault Captur and the Renault Duster. However, the Rush is unlikely to be introduced by Toyota in the country. here's why

The Toyota Rush is a petrol-only SUV, powered by the same 1.5-litre petrol engine as the Toyota Yaris. The engine makes 104PS of maximum power and 136Nm of peak torque. Unlike the Yaris, which gets a 6-speed manual or CVT, the Rush features a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. The Rush has a ground clearance of 220mm, which is 10mm more than the Duster's. The Toyota Rush offers features such as LED headlamps, alloy wheels, start/stop button, automatic climate control and touchscreen audio system with rear parking camera.

Toyota Rush review

Things We Like in Rush

  • 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
  • Toyota’s QDR - Since the Rush is a Toyota product, it is bound to be reliable as well

Things We Don't Like in Rush

  • 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.
  • Styling - The Rush doesn’t look like an imposing SUV from outside despite high ground clearance

CarDekho Verdict

The Toyota Rush is a highly anticipated SUV that would challenge the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Honda BR-V and Renault Captur. Revealed in 2018, the new Toyota Rush is a model built specifically with emerging markets in mind. Currently sold in Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and South Africa, the Rush is a midsize 7-seater SUV that looks like a promising product for the Indian market.

However, Toyota India has made it explicitly clear that it has no plans to launch the Toyota Rush here. While there are many reasons why the Toyota Rush isn’t being brought to India, there are three major reasons why it hasn’t been launched here yet. One, it is styled more like an MPV rather than an SUV. In essence, it does look like a lifted Toyota Avanza, much like how the Honda BR-V looks similar to the Mobilio. This is not a design language that’s accepted by most Indian buyers.

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. Investment aside, body-on-frame vehicles have disadvantages when it comes to handling and fuel efficiency, since they’re heavier and usually, not as stable to drive. While India loves the SUV look, we do expect car-like behaviour for daily usage.

And lastly, the compact SUV space is still largely driven by diesel engines. However, this demand is already dropping and Toyota expects it to plummet after the BSVI norms come in, since the new regulations will make diesel cars significantly more expensive. With that in mind, investing in a diesel-dependent car doesn’t make economic sense in the long run.

Instead, the brand could opt to introduce the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform-based C-HR. The Toyota C-HR crossover has already been spotted on test on Indian roads in its petrol-hybrid avatar and would rival the likes of the Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier, Hyundai Tucson and the top variants of the Hyundai Creta. That said, Toyota will most likely wait for the BSVI norms to kick in across India, which puts the launch timeline only in 2020 or later.
