If there’s one thing the car-buying public is saying they love at the moment, it’s SUVs. They’re all over the marketplace, from small crossovers to full-size family tanks. Another thing customers always love is generous equipment in a vehicle as standard.
The Emirates saw the Toyota Rush debut earlier this year, and since it hit the roads it has been highly popular with drivers. The mix of build quality, Toyota reliability, and genuinely useful family features have unsurprisingly made it one of the most popular cars of the year.
Toyota is seeking to build on this, with a host of desirable additions to the already appealing package. One of which the 2019 Rush gets is front fog lights. In addition, a tinted radiator grille, keyless entry, automatic folding mirrors and a crisp reversing camera can all be found as standard.
To the interior, you’ll find an infotainment system boasting a full-colour screen and a host of connectivity options, including Bluetooth. The sound system has received a considerable upgrade and now offers eight speakers for truly exceptional playback for your music.
Keeping the wheels turning
Under the hood, you’ll find an economical yet suitably gutsy four-cylinder 1.5-litre engine. This is enough to provide 103 horsepower to the front axle, and 135 Nm of torque. The gearbox is a four-speed automatic, which operates relatively seamlessly for a relaxed and comfortable drive.
Prices of the EX trim Rush start at AED 68,500, rising to AED 73,000 for the 2019 Rush GX model.
Whichever option you choose, you’re getting an attractive and capable family carry-all, that’s perfectly suited for local journeys and longer road trips. The appeal of Toyota build quality and reliability cannot be ignored, and when it comes in a comparatively affordable package like this – buyers won’t be able to resist.
If you’re looking for something that will house your family, pets, shopping, and other belongings comfortably and affordably, the Toyota Rush should be one of your key picks for 2019.
