Toyota’s new 2019-2020 introduces a 7-seat frame crossover new Toyota Rush (Toyota Rush) model of 2019, presented in parallel with the twin brother of the Daihatsu Terios 3 generation on November 23, 2019 in Indonesia. The novelties are based on the Daihatsu Xenia compact car platform (Toyota Avanza) and inherited from the donor frame body structure, rear wheel drive and an impressive 220 ground clearance. In our review of Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios (Daihatsu Therios) 2019-2020 – photos and videos, the price in Russia and the configuration, the technical characteristics of the twin brothers crossbands.
Production of new generations of Rush and Terios has already started at the Astra Daihatsu Motor plant in Sentura (Indonesia). Sales of new generators Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Therios start in Indonesia in January 2020 at a price of 239.9 – 264.55 million Indonesian rupees.
Having looked only once at the new Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios, it immediately becomes clear that we have a powerful response from the automotive giant Toyota Motor Corporation in the fall of 2019 to the Asian markets Mitsubishi Expander (Mitsubishi Xpander) . The debut of the spectacular Mitsubishi cross-country caused a high interest among car enthusiasts in the countries of South-East Asia for a model sporting an unusual exterior design of the body and a roomy cabin. But … “I did not play music for long”, and here it is, the answer of Toyota and Daihatsu in the face of the new generations of Rush and Terios.
We want to note from ourselves that the appearance of the new Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios is less bright and expressive than the Mitsubishi’s Xpander crossover with its simply superb design. At the same time, all three new Japanese crossways will please potential owners with a 7-seat saloon and 105 strong engines similar in efficiency, capable of aggregating 5 manual transmissions and 4 automatic transmissions regardless of the manufacturer. So the competition between Xpander and the twin brothers Rush and Therios promises to be very aggressive.
- The exterior dimensions of the body of Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios 2019-2020 are identical and are 4435 mm in length, 1695 mm in width, 1705 mm in height, with 2685 mm of wheelbase and 220 mm of ground clearance.
Compared with the models of Rash and Therios of the past generation, positioned as crossovers, the new generation of soplatform brothers is declared by manufacturers as a cross-platform. And at the same time, the body of new products has significantly increased in length by as much as 170 mm, which allowed to allocate 45 mm more legroom for passengers of the second row, and the length of the luggage compartment added 150 mm.
In the case of twin brothers, in addition to the identical body dimensions, the exterior and interior design are identical, of course, but with a couple of reservations. External differences are minimal: original falshradiatornye lattices with logos of companies Toyota and Daihatsu, yes slightly different front bumpers. Otherwise, the new crossover looks like two drops of water and shows a modern, stylish and bright design.
Narrowed, high-positioned headlights, a large false radiator grille with chrome horizontal slats, a powerful front bumper is in front.
Sideways, the body of the crosswave is harmonious, with the right proportions and a dynamic silhouette: a compact hood, a strong slope of the front pillars, a practically flat roof line, large side doors, circular cutouts of wheel arches, solid but not heavy fodder.
The rear part of the body is bright and attractive thanks to large shades of parking lights, a huge tailgate with a compact glass and a powerful bumper, dressed in black, scratch-resistant plastic.
To understand in the cabin of which of the brothers you are, just look at the hub of the steering wheel, where the traditional is the producer’s shildik. And without such a clue it’s impossible to say unequivocally whether the saloon is Toyota Rush or the interior of Daihatsu Therios. The car is decorated inside simply and concisely, that is called everything at hand and nothing superfluous.
There is a powerful front panel with a color screen of the multimedia complex centered on the center, a solid center console with an air conditioning control unit, an informative instrument panel with large radiuses of the speedometer and a tachometer, an augmented onboard computer screen, a compact three-spoke steering wheel, comfortable first and second seat seats row, the third row, designed to accommodate children.
The quality of materials and the equipment offered as options will not be claimed by the owners, most likely. By default, the fabric finishes of the seats, soft plastic on top of the front panel and on the door cards. But the basic equipment is poor.
But the top versions promise a lot of advanced equipment: ABS with EBD, 6 airbags, climate control, keyless access with an engine activation button, a multimedia system with a 7-inch touch screen (navigation, rear view camera, integration with smartphones), an assistant at the start of the hill, fully LED headlamps and rear position lights with three-dimensional LED graphics, 17-inch alloy wheels.
Technical specifications of Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios 2028-2020.
At the heart of the new crossovers is the frame structure of the body, allowing to provide cars with 220 mm off-road clearance. That’s only equipped with new items exclusively rear-wheel drive.
