Toyota Rush 2019. According to Toyota’s internal data, cabin length has increased by 170 mm, translating into a better legroom in the second row and a larger luggage area.
The second row now returns to the most common configuration 40:60, unlike 50:50 which calms the comfort of the passenger who lives in the middle.
We also noticed that the leather material that covers the seats in the new Toyota Rush has improved the quality of the car compared to the Honda BR-V. In the short driving experience, the two seats in the first and second rows provided good support for the shoulders and thighs, with additional reinforcement feeling at the edges of the seats.
There is a roof-mounted blower in the second row of passenger cooling in the second and third row. One of the obstacles in the air conditioner in Rush is that it does not have a definable blow direction, which means it can not turn the air flow to its feet or to the windshield. There is no front defogger function, so if the windshield fog is in the rain, you must change the fan to put the fresh air or cut the windows slightly.
The short period in the third grade also has a positive impression. The seats felt comfortable, with ample space and a leg room (we could put our feet under the second row).
The test track consists mainly of highways, which move from MAEPS to Cyberjaya and return. Because there are no changes in the 1.5-liter engine and 4-speed automatic transmission that are also found in the updated Avanza Dual VVT-i, the acceleration can be described as paused.
More attention has been paid to isolating the cabin in this generation, with very moderate wind noise and noise. Engine noise is evident at highway speeds, where gear ratios are adjusted for acceleration. At 110 km / h, the tachometer swings around 3500 rpm, which the CVT will not experience.
The luxurious Bridgestone Alenza range also contributed to cabin design thanks to lower noise levels.
The blind spot and the traffic warning are a standard addition in both variables. They provide good help (only visual) for the alarm of having cars behind that can not be seen through the side mirrors.
We also tested the pre-collision system (PCS) available only in the 1.5S variable. This was done as expected with the use of full braking force when the new Rush approached a static object. Get more information about the new Toyota Roach system.
Another feature used by PCS devices and software is the front exit alert. A soft beep sounds when the driver does not start moving as the car moves forward as the traffic lights turn green. We would have liked the beeping sound higher because it was barely audible even when the radio volume was low.
Toyota Rush moves in a steady direction and is in a steady position. The suspension has been adjusted to take into account the full load of seven passengers and luggage.
So, with only two people in the car during the short driving test, the suspension is a “low pad” and a more assertive leadership is offered.
Toyota drove us out of the paved roads, on a road around an unused old mining pond. The new Toyota Rush has made a great performance here! Thanks to the long-term suspension and ground clearance of 220 mm, bumps were easily handled with a speed of more than 40 km / h.

The new Toyota Rush is not available to display or test units at Toyota showrooms, where production and delivery are scheduled for January 2019.
The new Toyota Rush car looks fantastic on the metal thanks to the large double-color wheels, along with the fuselage and lines of the specific figures. The interior design of these models was certainly working well, which improved the cabin environment.
In general, new enhancements to Rush in many aspects of MPV enter the level at which they are based. High-quality finishes and quiet environment of the cabin can be seen and felt easy. Security features such as blind spot control and personal computers, along with the 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating, will attract many young families who prefer to be in a superb SUV.
The new Toyota Rush comes in a more aggressive style and high-quality interior design. Based on the Toyota Avanza / Daihatsu Zinnia, the SUV’s 7-seater SUV also includes many of the expected new safety features, such as six airbags, electronic stability control, and hillside assistance.
With the launch of the event at MAEPS, the venue of the second round of the Vios Challenge 2018/2019, we took the test route from MAEPS to Cyberjaya and vice versa, which consists of roads connecting the two places almost.
The new Toyota Rush now has many new features, such as LEDs (still without DRL), large LED backlights, 17-inch wheels, dual-color airbags, and keyless entry. Strong personal lines on both sides and bumpers certainly contribute to a strong sense of cruelty in the new Toyota.
Toyota has undoubtedly improved its interior quality. The instrument panel and door panels contain contrasting sections decorated in white. The liberal use of imitation sewing also covers the interior, but it is in strategic places and simple patterns.
