Toyota Rush compact SUV may hit the Indian roads soonJuly 14, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
Following in the footsteps of Ford and Renault who have launched their compact SUV’s in India, Toyota has decided to bring their Rush compact SUV to India. Everything is under process right now, but the decision has been taken and in a couple of years Rush will be giving stiff competition to Ecosport and Duster.
Since we don’t know what specification the Indian Rush will carry, we would gladly tell you about the Rush that is available at other places. Presently it comes in both short wheelbase and long wheelbase with 5 and 7 seater capabilities. Although it features a 1.5 liter petrol engine but in India we can expect Corolla’s 1.4-litre D4-D diesel engine and the Etios’ 1.4 petrol engine.
Other features like the ABS, EBD and Airbags will be standard and at par with its competitors. Rush does have 4 wheel drive variant but it is yet to be seen if it will be coming to the Indian shores. In the near future Indian market is all set to see a huge range of cars to choose from and that is a good thing.
