A Brief History of the Toyota Rush
Toyota Rush is an SUV product that was created as a result of Toyota’s collaboration with Daihatsu, a twin with Daihatsu Terios.
After its launch, this car has successfully become one of the most popular compact SUV models in Indonesia. Toyota Rush itself first appeared in Indonesia in 2006, not long after the release of the Toyota Avanza and Daihatsu Xenia.
At the start of its existence, the Toyota Rush might look the same as the Daihatsu Terios, but it turns out that these two cars have several differences. The Daihatsu Terios is made in a 7-seater configuration while the Toyota Rush is made in a 5-seater configuration. The presence of the Toyota Rush in Indonesia has succeeded in increasing the sales of Toyota SUVs from 3,000 units per year to 30,000 units per year.
Three years after their debut in Indonesia, to be precise in 2009, the Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios received a facelift from Toyota and Daihatsu. At that time, changes made to this car only covered the exterior, such as changes to the grille with a transverse line in the middle of the logo, fog lamps or fog lamps, and the addition of bumper guards on the front and rear.
Then in 2010, to be precise in October, the Toyota Rush received a minor facelift again. At that time, the Toyota Rush presented a new variant, namely the Toyota Rush G with a choice of automatic transmission. In addition, several changes to the body were made, for example, a denser grille, replacement of the taillights, and a bumper with a new pattern. In this new model, the Toyota Rush also gets an additional roof rail and wider tires to add an aggressive impression.
Toyota Rush then offered a new variant in 2013. At that time, the new variant offered was the Toyota Rush TRD Sportive. When viewed from a design perspective, the Toyota Rush TRD Sportive is still the same, but this variant has received various improvements compared to the previous version. One of them is on the exterior, where this variant undergoes changes to the spoiler and the front and rear bumper designs.
Then in 2015, the Toyota Rush again received changes that were considered more modern. Changes made are in the grille, bumper, and the use of LED lights for the front and rear. In addition, the wheel design has also been changed to a 16-inch Alloy Wheel Polisher so that it looks sportier.
In 2016, the Toyota Rush received another change. Changes made are in the configuration of the car, which now applies a 7-seater configuration or can accommodate up to seven passengers. In addition, the Toyota Rush TRD Sportive variant was also upgraded to the Toyota Rush TRD Sportive Ultimo. This latest variant already uses a new front and rear suspension in the form of a New Shock Absorber and TRD’s typical Dual Rate Coil Spring so that it can provide more comfort and more stability when driving at high speeds.
