Toyota Rush 1.5 S (2018) Video Review

With the new Rush, Toyota continues its proud history of offering affordable people-movers in the South African market. Based on the popular Avanza MPV, this Indonesian-made newcomer combines typical SUV features such as off-roader styling cues, a raised driving position and a higher ride height, with a generously equipped 5-seater cabin and a spacious luggage compartment.

With attractive, purposeful looks, nice-to-have features such as a multifunction steering wheel, electric windows, climate control, an Android Auto and Apple CarPlay-compatible touchscreen audio system, as well as a reverse-view camera, let alone its comprehensive safety spec, the Toyota seems a near-complete package for entry-level family car buyers. However, is this Rush a bargain “baby Fortuner” or does it struggle to overcome its (albeit proven) workhorse underpinnings? Let's find out.
