Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

The Toyota Rush is a compact SUV that is sold in markets such as Indonesia and Malaysia. The Rush is also known as the Daihatsu Terios (and if you would like to relate India in between all of this, we can tell you that the first generation Terios is being sold to us as the Premier Rio).

Toyota Rush facelift Indonesia

Autonetmagz have reason to believe that Toyota is planning a facelift for their mini SUV and that it could look like this. Note that they also say that this could just be a TRD Sportivo kit (which is also sold in India for the Etios, Liva and Fortuner) which includes a body kit, some stickers on the door and branding on the seats.

If this is indeed a facelift, there are no drastic changes to the Rush and one has to literally use a magnifying glass to observe that the air dam on the front bumper is differently styled.

This is the first generation Toyota Rush/Daihatsu Terios, better known to us as the Premier Rio.

Engine wise, the Rush is powered by a 109PS 1.5-liter petrol engine mated to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed AT.

It should also be mentioned that a 7-seat version of the Rush is available in Indonesia, albeit with the Daihatsu badge. Called the Terios Advantage, the wheelbase of the car is enhanced to accommodate the third row of seats.

Currently, Toyota has no plans of introducing the Rush in the Indian market.
