It looks like the all-new Toyota Rush (known as the Daihatsu Terios in some markets) is set to make its debut in Indonesia soon – Autonetmagz has published leaked pictures of the third-generation model, which derives its lines from the Daihatsu FT Concept.

The leaked photos reveal that the production version of the Rush bears MPV-like proportions compared to its boxy, SUV-esque predecessor. The report states some of the seven-seater’s features, which include bi-beam LED reflector headlamps, L-shaped LED daytime running lights, LED combination rear lamps, LED puddle lamps built into the underside of the wing mirrors (power-retractable), a rear spoiler with integrated LED brake lights and a shark fin antenna.

The two variants spotted here are of the G and TRD Sportivo trim, and they share the aforementioned kit. Separating the two is the wheel size and design – the G gets 16-inch alloys while the TRD Sportivo (in black) receives a 17-inch, dual tone turbine-like design, resembling the concept car’s.

Several other standard features for the G are engine start-stop function and manual digital climate control with memory function (just like the new Myvi!), whereas the TRD Sportivo receives automatic climate control, soft-touch dashboard material and keyless entry. Both variants get a reverse camera, reverse parking sensors and a seven-inch infotainment system, but the range-topper’s head unit gets upgraded to support Near-Field Communication (NFC) and is paired to eight speakers.

The new Rush also gets a multifunction steering wheel (tilt only, not telescopic), analogue instrument meters with a digital TFT multi-info display, and occupants benefit from a total of three charging ports. Safety wise, the Rush is fitted with ABS, EBD, VSC, hill-start assist and six airbags, but word is the Daihatsu Terios will only be getting four airbags. The Terios, however, will come with a 360-degree surround-view camera, which the Rush doesn’t get.

In the performance department, the new 1.5 litre 2NR-VE four-cylinder engine (with Dual VVT-i) is expected to debut here, retiring the old 1.5 litre VVT-i lump. If the engine sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the same engine found in the latest Myvi. There, it makes 102 hp at 6,000 rpm and 136 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm – that’s actually six hp and five Nm down from what the previous 1.5 mill makes, but the upside to this is fuel economy gains.

In Indonesia, pricing for the 2018 Toyota Rush is reportedly set to increase by about Rp.5,000,000 (RM1,540). The previous Rush had a starting price of Rp 228.7 million for the G manual to Rp.262.45 million (RM78,534) for the TRD Sportivo Ultimo A/T. At launch, the new Rush will take on segment rivals, the Honda BR-V and Mitsubishi Xpander. Which is your pick? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
