Toyota unveiled the new Rush in Indonesia last year – simultaneously with its twin, the Daihatsu Terios – but it did not reveal prices at the time. Now, the company has announced that the new seven-seater SUV will come with the same prices as before, according to a report from AutonetMagz.

In fact, said Toyota, the range-topping TRD Sportivo auto variant is actually three million rupiah cheaper than before. As such, prices start at 239.9 million rupiah (RM71,500) for the base G manual, rising up to 249.9 million rupiah (RM74,500) for the G auto, 251.3 million rupiah (RM74,900) for the TRD Sportivo manual and 261.3 million rupiah (RM77,900) for the TRD Sportivo auto.

Standard equipment includes LED head- and tail lights, 16-inch machine-finish alloy wheels, push-button start and a reverse camera. The TRD Sportivo throws in a soft-touch two-tone dashboard, a colour multi-info display, USB ports in every row, a DVD-AVX infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen, Miracast, Weblink, Bluetooth and Waze support, plus eight speakers.

As the name suggests, the TRD Sportivo also gains a number of aesthetic enhancements, including a larger front and rear underguard, chunky fog light surrounds and protective side strips, along with 17-inch alloys. Better news is that safety kit such as six airbags, ABS, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Hill Start Assist (HSA), emergency stop signal and seat belt reminders for all seven seats are standard across the range.

All models get the same new 2NR 1.5 litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine from the Avanza, making 104 PS at 6,000 rpm and 136 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. Power goes to the rear wheels through either a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic.

Given that prices in Indonesia have remained stable between generations, the Rush shouldn’t be too much more expensive than the current model when it reaches Malaysia, where the outgoing SUV is priced from RM101,900 to RM106,700. What do you think – would you prefer the more rough-and-ready body-on-frame Rush or the more passenger car-like Honda BR-V?
