This new compact SUV from Toyota will be coming to India as a compact SUV (sub four-metres) for the five-seater and there is also likely to be a seven-seater version too.

 

The Toyota Rush is branded as Daihatsu in several markets and it powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine. For the Indian car market, it could get the 1.4-litre D-4D engine with 87bhp of power and six-speed manual transmission. The Toyota Rush will come loaded with features like keyless entry, push start and stop, in-dash touchscreen infotainment system with reverse parking camera, dual airbags and ABS.

Toyota Rush is a strong contender for this segment and it can compete with the Hyundai Creta and Mahindra Scorpio if its plans to get both five and seven-seater versions.
