Toyota Rush has already been in the rumors for quite some time. However, it has now been officially launched in Pakistan by Indus Motors Company at an exclusive launch event, today.
The Toyota Rush is a mini-SUV. It used to be called the Daihatsu Terios back in 2010, but got renamed later by Toyota. During the years, it has undergone several design changes. In Pakistan, it will come in three variants, all powered by the same 1500cc EURO 2 engine with two different transmission options of either 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic.
The three variants are called G/MT, G/AT, and S/AT, with the latter being the higher-end one. Its engine produces 136 nm torque and 104 bhp of horsepower. All in all, most of the internal features are the same between the variants other than transmission options, some chrome ornaments, and other advanced tech.
The compact SUV will compete with other similar mini-SUV’s such as Honda HR-V, Suzuki Vitara, and Honda BR-V. Here’s a comparison chart between the vehicles for some important features:
