Toyota Rush PRO’s & CON’s

  • Things We Like
  • Things we don’t like

Toyota Rush looks modern and instantly catches the attention of others.

It has striking features, including angular front headlamps, a wide front grille, roof rails, rugged side profile with black cladding, machined alloy wheels, and an extremely sporty back profile with wide and horizontal tail lamps.

The design elements in Rush make this vehicle stay a cut above the rest when compared with other comparable models in the same segment.

It offers the added advantage of two extra seats in the third row. So, you can have more people travelling in the car, hence making the ride even more enjoyable.

The price is quite reasonable when you consider the features it has on offer.

The car gives an indestructible feel to its riders, and the reliability that the brand Toyota carries gives everyone sufficient mental peace to travel freely.

Even though the Toyota Rush looks appealing from the outside, moderate styling on the inside leads to contradictory opinions.

The interior's subtle style, going with the odd-looking instrument and centre consoles, dampens the spirits and the overall experience.

The 1.5-litre petrol engine fails to deliver the requisite power that one would usually expect to receive.

Even though the linear power delivery is okay for effortless and comfortable driving still, it is not sufficiently engaging for the driver.

Despite having another row for two more passengers, space becomes an issue for those who sit on the third row. When you are on a long drive, an adult would feel uncomfortable sitting over there.

The sound of its engine is quite rough, and it disrupts the comfort of passengers.
