Toyota Rush - New SUV in town

The Toyota Rush is a rather handsome small SUV imported 'CBU' from Indonesia. Imagine a grown-up Kembara and you won't be far wrong ...
The new Rush is a 7-seater monocoque SUV based on an adapted Toyota Avanza platform, and is powered by a 1.5 liter VVT-i engine called the 3SZ-VE, installed longtitudinally in the Rush’s engine bay. It drives the two rear wheels. The 3SZ-VE produces 109 PS at 6,000rpm and 141Nm of torque at 4,400rpm.
Three variants of the new Toyota Rush are available - the manual 1.5G, the automatic 1.5G and the automatic top of the line 1.5S, which is only available in automatic. The manual variant has the 3SZ-VE paired with a 5-speed manual, while the automatic version has a 4-speed auto with a gated shift. The drivetrain is 2WD, which is lighter and offers better fuel economy.
Toyota Rush 1.5G M/T - RM85,888
Toyota Rush 1.5G A/T - RM88,888
Toyota Rush 1.5S A/T - RM94,888
