Toyota Rush Malaysia




UMW Toyota gave a sudden shock to Malaysian on 28th January 2008 by launching the Toyota Rush. Prior to the launching, UMW Toyota did not give any hint to Malaysian that they are going to launch a new SUV in Malaysia. Toyota Rush is a 7-seater SUV CBU from Indonesia. Toyota Rush is powered by 1.5l twin cam VVT-i engine, which can produce 107bhp at 6000 rpm. This 7-seater share the same platform and engine with Toyota Avanza 1.5.

Toyota Rush also marketed as Daihatsu Bego and 2nd generation Daihatsu Terios in some countries. First generation of Daihatsu Terios is better known as Perodua Kembara in Malaysia.



Toyota Rush is priced from RM 85,888 to RM 94,888.
1) RM 85,888 - Toyota Rush 1.5 G (Manual)
2) RM 88,888 - Toyota Rush 1.5 G (Auto)
3) RM 94,888 - Toyota Rush 1.5 S (Auto)
Note: Prices are On-The-Road with insurance

The G versions comes with 1 Air bag while the S version has dual airbags. ABS and EBD only available in the S version. Both G and S versions are equipped with 16-inch rims.

Although the price is a bit high for a 1.5l automobile, but Toyota has proved that they can sell 1.5l car at the RM 80K to RM 90K brackets with the Toyota Vios. Therefore, selling Toyota Rush at this price range shouldn't be a problem for UMW Toyota.

Price comparison with other cars:
RM 71,996 - Toyota Avanza 1.5 G (Auto)
RM 79,888 - Naza Citra 2.0 (Auto)
RM 88,600 - Toyota Vios 1.5 S (Auto)
RM 88,888 - Toyota Rush 1.5 G (Auto)

  2. wanted to have one rush..but with 5 seater only...dun like for 7 seater...anyone who owned rush..how bout the petrol?..average..is it ok?..better than avanza?..

  3. hi flicka,

    if you want to 5 seater, maybe you should consider Perodua Nautica instead. It's look very similar to Rush but with 5 seater. Somemore, it's fully import from Japan.

  8. My froend told me that rush is using the same engin as vios and avanza. Compare to these two, rush consume more fuel due to heavy weight.

    RM 88K w/o dual airbag and EBS, would make me think twice whether to buy or not..

  9. Hi Rush owners,

    I have one 1.5(S) CBU model, just to check whether you all have the same problem as mine.Do your Rush giving a tickling sound under driver dashboard whenever the car is about to move (drive or reversing)?
    The Toyota mechanic said the sound is from the brake switch and it is no harm to the car which I do not see the logic.

    My questions:
    1. Is it normal to have the sound?
    2. Does it affect the brake efficiency?
    3. Is there anything can be done to get rid the sound?

    Concerned owner,
    fzzie.

  10. saya pakai rush
    1.petrol jimat
    2.brake system tak ok sebab disk brake kat depan je yg berfungsi sedangkan brake belakang tak seimbang tekanan ke atas tayar.pengalaman saya turun dari genting amat menakutkan bau hangit d brake depan sedangkan brake belakang sejuk tak ada fungsi.
    3.speed ok
    4.agak sempit ruang pemanduan tak selesa
    5.kesenyapan ok

  11. perodua nautica? m'sia product oh. is it good? hw much it sale? i oso prefer 5 seaters. tq.

  12. I am not a car expert. Just wondering, if i need a 7 seater to drive from KL to Ipoh during holidays, but most of the time in KL for normal use. Have 2 kids and old parents. Maybe go for shopping purpose. But other times, will drive around alone to work. Image to work is slight concern because Avanza/Inova is pretty box-looking. Also, got budget constraint because don't want to get anything above Rm100k.

    So, with such a need, do you think Rush is still the only car in Msia that can meet the needs of people like us? I liked Toyota Wish, but it cost about Rm147k, which is about RM50k more. Can use this for other investment purpose. Pls advise if you have some other cars of similar capacity i.e. 7 seater. Thanks

  13. model rush cantik ada ala kereta spot.kalau guna kawasan banjir macam kat larut matang selama ijok perak, o.k macam helux. so rush is the good car for my area.

  14. rush to memange cantik... tapi RM 90k for 1500 cc .. i rasa , a bit too expensive.

  15. Utk kawasan yg berbukit, perlu keta 4WD...rush is the best laaa....for ladies...

  16. im using vios 08 but after got new baby ( now become 2 kids ) im start thingking about 7 seater car...is it worth to have this rush ? any comment ...tq

    ReplyDelete
  17. if your main concern is 7-seater, I think Nissan Grand Livina and Naza Kia Rondo are more value for money. Livina is 1.8L, Rondo is 2.0L while Rush only 1.5L.

  18. Hi! hello, are u going for race?if only for family use why need big engine?if u want to race buy sport car...

  19. i think rush is a perfect SUV.AND WHICH IDIOT SAID GRAND LIVINA IS BETTER!!!!!!!!! i have 2 friends who has livina and they like to show off that they having it.by the way,livina does not have any GPS and touchscreen lcd tv!!!!!!!i don't see the big deal!and the shape of livina looks like old version car!!!!!so you guys should know what i mean,that i hate livina!even exora is nicer shape and reasonable

    ReplyDelete
  20. I can see many Livina on the road but hardly see any Rush on the road. The answer is very clear - Majority prefer Livina.

    Is this mean the Majority is IDIOT!!!

  21. saya shahreen dr ladang kelapa sawit, gua musang, kelantan.
    1) masa banjir, rush boleh lepas. livina pula kena tunggu air surut.
    2) minyak jimat, 17-18 sen / km (bergantung kpd bentuk muka bumi.-(setiap masa pasang aircond)
    3) bentuk kereta ala2 toyota fortuner...ada gaya..
    4) kalau pasang roof carrier, boleh angkat byk barang.

  22. WHETHER U GO FOR RUSH OR LIVINA, U STILL HAVE TO CONSIDER THE BIGGEST ASPECT WHICH IS $$$$$, PAYING D/PAYMENT AND MONTHLY INSTALLMENT IS ONE THING, BUT WITH THE CURRENT UNSTABLE ECONOMY, U STILL HAVE TO ALLOCATE SOME $$$$$ FOR YOUR CAR MAINTENANCE, INSURANCE/ROAD TAX, PETROL.........AND MANY MORE TO COMES WHEN U ALREADY OWN A CAR.

  25. saya dari kuantan, pahang. Dah guna RUSH selama 2 tahun.Setakat ni tiada maslah, minyak jimat (bergantung pd pemanduan), keelesaan utk kami & 5 anak, kendalian baik pada apa keadaan jalan. Yang penting bagi saya...kurang maslah pada enjin...Itulah TOYOTA...

  29. I just booked a silver colored Rush last week.Feedback heard from my friend ...no problem with Rush because its using VVTi engine..same as Vios , smooth ride and economy.

    ReplyDelete
  30. congrat on your new booking. Toyota is reputable for good quality vehicle.

    ReplyDelete
  31. But one thing about Rush...only four color to choose. Compared to Vios and Avanza having variety of colors . Hope that Toyota will improve on adding more color for Rush so buyers got more choice.

    ReplyDelete
  32. perkara penting yg perlu dipertimbangkn utk sesebuah kereta:
    1) enjin (sekurg2nya cc kena sesuai dgn berat kenderaan. 1.5L - 1200kg masih ok. spare part mudah diperolehi/murah/hrga berpatutan. pgunaan minyak berbaloi
    2)keperluan (4 seater,7 seater, 2 seater....
    3)fizikal (bentuk muka bumi kat malaysia ni berbukit bukau, so kena guna kereta yg sesuai, size tayar, ketinggian. ini utk jgnka masa panjg la....
    so terpulang pada anda buat keputusan...
    sblm ni dh test drive hyundai accent, vios, hilux,avanza,proton blm,sorento, d max....sya prefer rush. coz x terlalu tinggi, xterlalu rendah(grand livina)...pemanduan sesuai dgn bentuk muka bumi malaysia.....d bandar, kwsn kg, kawsn berbukit, jln x ber tar....
    memg x da kreta yg perfect....tp...kta kena compare kreta mana yg byk kelebihan utk berada di jln rya malaysia....

  33. jz got my rush on 23/06/10. nice car tall enough to view everything in front your car. spacious enough for 7 adults. smooth ride on highway but abit slow when going uphill. all and all i love my rush. btw blue color rush you have to wait at least 2 months as the blue color only will be produce base on orders.

  36. im considering whether to buy suzuki SX4 or toyoto rush,,,
    i once called a toyota dealer to ask whether rush is good bargain and know what he said that u better buy oth car eg vios,,,wtf,,,
    but reading the comments left bt the current rush owner make me rethink bout my decision of purchasing rush,,,,

    ReplyDelete
  37. I dah pakai rush for 6 months. So far so good, cuma kekadang gear reverse susah nak masuk, maybe i yg tak expert. Minyak jimat, di jalan raya smooth cuma naik bukit a little bit slow. Kpd yg suka SUV i cadangkan Rush. U wl never regret.
