Toyota Rush, Daihatsu Terios facelift now in Indonesia

Daihatsu Rush facelift Indonesia

After countless leaks, the facelifts for both the Toyota Rush and the Daihatsu Terios twins have been unveiled in Indonesia. The five/seven-seat SUVs have been given a rather thorough exterior makeover as well as a few added features.

At the front, there are new projector headlights with LED positioning lights and a wider grille with a chrome lower bar, while the lower bumper receives a full-width air intake and a blacked-out centre piece. Both cars have higher-end variants with bodykits – TRD Sportivo on the Rush and Adventure on the Terios – but the latter gets a more aggressive design with its own set of LEDs.

Moving back, the Terios gets new fender vents which the Rush doesn’t get, plus new side mouldings. New clear LED combination tail lights, outboard spare wheel cover and rear bumper bring up the rear, while new 16-inch wheels complete the look.

Inside, both cars get a new steering wheel from the current Avanza, a redesigned instrument cluster, new seat upholstery, reshaped second-row headrests and double-DIN touchscreen DVD head units on higher trim levels. On the Terios, the trim pieces are now finished in gloss black; the Rush sticks with the current silver finish.

No changes to the mechanicals, so the 1.5 litre VVT-i petrol four-pot stays on as before, making 109 PS at 6,000 rpm and 141 Nm at 4,400 rpm. Transmission choices have also been retained, so buyers in the archipelago can select either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic.

Prices for the Daihatsu Terios start at Rp 186.9 juta (RM53,100) for the manual X variant, rising up to Rp 243.2 juta (RM69,100) for the automatic R Adventure. The Toyota Rush is costlier, starting at Rp 228.7 juta (RM65,000) for the G manual and topping off at Rp 252.3 juta (RM71,600) for the TRD Sportivo auto.

    a useless facelift indeed. look at that drivetran como. A 7 seater with a normally aspirated 1.5l engine with the 4-speed auto of toyota’s pride. Hopefully honda will sustain and overtake toyota in sales. Toyota is too arrogant of their dominance in the market, which they refuse to upgrade their vehicles.

      there is a good reason why cannot buy Honda HRV in Malaysia..

      currently = CKD Thaimade.

      sooner or later CKD Malaysia version will be launched.
      taking the fact sharing and platform with Honda Jazz and city which is CKD DRB -Hicom version, HR-V will be CKD in any time soon.

      while CKD honda hr-v is launched.
      the sales price will drop.

      then the current HR-V will see lower second hand value/ lower RV.

    After CNY, I kau kau also wanna sell my 2 rotten cabbages.

    Have to park 500m away (and deliberately arriving late) so that no family members see me drive a kimchi. But somehow, someone saw and the news got spread to others. So, toward the end of reunion dinner, I got funny looks from relatives.

    Then the old man mentioned my cousin got promoted and now drives bought an Accord for his wife. He gets a Lexus as company car.

    I am so paiseh that excused myself to leave early by giving excuse that I have stomach upset.

    So, curi curi leave and never felt so embarressed in my life.

  • outdoor maniac on Mar 21, 2015 at 4:24 pm

    I can appreciate this car. Support Toyota and perodua to bring in this model into malaysia.
    The comments or complaints that most of you gave are more towards urban use and comparing to other premium SUVs, yes the plastic used inside is ugly and low class, not worth the money, the design inside is old school and ugly and nothing much to show off. but try to think of it another way, Why Toyota and daihatsu still produce this car? If you are a true 4×4 user, you will appreciate this car, all the disadvantage of this car will turn into advantages when you drive this car off road.
    To me, 4×4 car when go into the woods most often is that we will wind down our window to view our tyre direction or the trail that we are going through or we will cross a muddy river, so the interior will easily get dirty, a plastic interior is more practical than leather interior, you will never thought of using the leather interior 4×4 for off road so this plastic material used is more suitable. Other than that, the conventional 4 speed auto or 5 speed manual is definitely more useful than the 7-speed CVT gearbox when you are going through a tough terrain.

    So now hopefully most of you can truly appreciate the car makers point of view, this car might not suits you. You can go for the Honda HRV or Mazda CX-3 if you are looking for something more urban and stylish. But it definitely is one of the top choice for a true 4×4 enthusiast.

    Cheers!

      Good quality interior doesn’t always mean luxury btw. Take a look at the new Nissan X-Trail which all of the interior materials are waterproof and it’s made of very good quality soft-touch plastics, leather, metal, wood, etc. X-Trail also use CVT with FWD or 4WD config, and both drivetrains are capable in off-road condition, so you can compare the capability of FWD X-Trail and RWD Rush. In my opinion, both has similar capability, and I’ve tested both cars, honestly I choose for X-Trail 2.0 even it’s FWD, and with CVT, rather than RWD Rush with those dino-spec 4 spd.

        If you point to me, trust me I’m not a Nissan salesman, and I’ve even use UMW cars since Toyota Unser era.

        Also I don’t think he’s an UMW salesman, since sam loo fired and move to Parkson as underwear promoter, I haven’t see any UMW salesman commenting here to support and offering their products.

    I fail to see why someone would pay extra money to get this Rush over the Avanza. Same hardwares, same safety techs, same seven-seater but much higher prices. Even if you value RV above else, the Avanza is still a better buy because the RV of the Rush will be same as Avanza come time to sell it.
