The 5 to 7-seater MPV from Toyota, dubbed as the Rush, is considered one of the most notable nameplates in 2018. The unusual body type stole the spotlight in the Philippine automotive scene due to its seating capacity which does not sacrifice much of the ground clearance. It's like an SUV, but more affordable, and more compact.

The design, which is inspired by its bigger and older brother Fortuner, is not the only ace of this MPV. Rather, it's getting the buzzword for its dimension designed to support both cargo and the members of your family. That's because the Rush comes in two variants: the 5-seater 1.5 E and 7-seater 1.5 G variants. The Rush sits in between the fortresses of Innova and Avanza — which are considered two giant nameplates in the segment.
What sets it apart is its better-looking appeal compared from the Innova and Avanza. The Rush comes with upswept LED headlamps and a four-slat grille, a style observed in the current trend of modern vehicle design. Meanwhile, the 1.5 G varaiant comes with roof rails and a neat set of 17-inch wheels. The interior celebrates a fleet of features, such as a push start button, tilt-adjusted steering, and a reverse parking camera.
For its mill, the Rush houses the same engine found under the hood of the Avanza. The 1.5-liter Dual-VVTi gasoline engine capable of 102 hp and 134 Nm of torque will be coupled to either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. A bigger and more handsome Avanza, you could say.
To spice up the Rush more, Toyota is offering their latest MPV in six color finishes. You may have it in Black Metallic, Bordeaux Mica, Bronze Mica Metallic, Dark Red Mica Metallic, Silver Mica Metallic, or White, depending on how you like it.
