Toyota Indonesia has just released an official image of the new 2018 Toyota Rush, posted as a new cover image on the company’s Facebook page. The front three quarter shot follows a teaser of the new model’s tail lamps, with “cutting edge vehicle illumination system” as caption.

Also sold as the Daihatsu Terios in Indonesia, the 2018 Toyota Rush has been leaked ahead of its Indonesian debut, and this official pic confirms the Rush’s move to more MPV-like proportions compared to the older, SUV look. There’s some Fortuner in the design of this Honda BR-V rival, don’t you think? Like what you see?

Word is that the new Rush will have bi-beam LED reflector headlamps, L-shaped LED daytime running lights, the aforementioned LED combination rear lamps and LED puddle lamps built into the underside of the power-retractable wing mirrors. The all-LED lighting is perhaps what Toyota Indonesia meant with its teaser pic caption.

Two variants were previously spotted: the G and the TRD Sportivo. In addition to the aforementioned equipment for both, the G gets engine start-stop function and manual digital climate control with memory function, while the TRD Sportivo gains automatic climate control, soft-touch dashboard material and keyless entry.

Both get a reverse camera, reverse parking sensors and a seven-inch infotainment system, with the range topper getting support for near-field communication (NFC) compatible devices and is mated to an eight-speaker sound system. Occupants within get access to three charging ports.

The driver gets a tilt-adjustable multifunction steering wheel, ahead of analogue instruments with a digital multi-info display. On the safety front, the Rush gets ABS, EBD, VSC, hill-start assist and six airbags, two more than the Terios but without that model’s 360-degree surround view camera.

Here, we also get a look at the Rush interior, courtesy of Rockomotif. For the Indonesian market, two-tone black-and-cream interior scheme is used, with metal-look trim used on the steering wheel spokes and on the gear lever surround; the instrument cluster bears resemblance to those of the Innova and the Fortuner.

Pricing for the 2018 Toyota Rush in Indonesia has yet to be confirmed, though Rockomotif speculates that it will be in the region of 250 to 300 million Rupiah (RM76,111 to RM91,333), which was said to be an increase of 10-15 million Rupiah (RM3,044 to RM4,566) over the previous model.
