2018 Toyota Rush Philippines

Want to know how safe the Toyota Rush or the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid are? Well, the New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asian countries (ASEAN NCAP), the guys who crash cars with test dummies for a living, recently released their test results for both vehicles.

For this test, the ASEAN NCAP used the recently launched Toyota Rush 1.5L G variant. This entry-level SUV scored 43.25/50 points for Adult Occupant Protection (AOP), 21.33/25 points for Child Occupant Protection (COP), and 19.44/25 points for Safety Assist Technologies (SATs). With this, the Rush had a cumulative score of 84.03/100 points to achieve a five-star safety rating.

The crash test report commended the Rush’s electronic stability control (ESC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), and Seatbelt Reminder System (SBR) for both front and rear passengers. Local units of the Rush will also come equipped with driver, front passenger, side, and curtain airbags.

This hybrid hatchback boasts its Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and Lane Keep Assist (LKA) in addition to its other safety features.
