The new Toyota Rush has arrived at Limpopo Toyota and is sure to take the local market by storm with its embodied robustness, reliability and slick styling.
The newly addition to Toyota’s line-up is almost like a mini Fortuner with its eminent versatility and practicality and is extraordinary affordable.
“Smoked” light clusters, 17” alloy wheels and roof rails add to the Toyota Rush’s aesthetic appeal and with a ground clearance of 220 mm, plus excellent approach and departure angles, it is happy to take on any taxing terrain. The Rush’s front view is dominated by a large grille flanked by LED daytime running lamps and a high-set bonnet. The profile view admittedly looks a bit more generic, but flared wheel arches and black cladding make the newcomer appear purposeful.
There are many exciting features on the Toyota Rush and buyers can figure on the likes of keyless entry and start, as well as high-tech infotainment system with built-in navigation. This stylish machine which is as much at home in the urban cut ‘n thrust as it is exploring the hinterland, also come with Bluetooth, USB port, reverse camera, LED headlamps with auto light control and also auto-dual zone climate control.
Safety is well taken care of as well and the Toyota Rush includes driver and passenger airbags as well as side and curtain airbags, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Bake-force Distribution (EBD) and Hill Assist Control (HAC).
Since it is a full five-seater with generous luggage space, whether you are transporting a family or the golf clubs and fishing rods for your weekend away, there is room for everything and more.
