Toyota-ID reports that the 2016 model year Toyota Rush will be launched in Indonesia in three variants. To compete with the recently introduced 2016 Honda BR-V which is a seven seater, the 2016 Rush gets two seven-seat variants.

An Indonesian website has revealed that the 2016 Toyota Rush will get body striping, new body colour, an new alloy wheel design.

The two seven-seat versions are the Toyota Rush TRD Sportivo Ultimo and Toyota Rush TRD Sportivo 7, and the lone five-seat model is the Rush G. The seven-seaters can be ordered in a new colour ‘Blue Nebula,’ while the G variant will be available only in the colours of the previous version.

The Toyota Rush 2016 gets the same exterior but adds a red stripe on the grille, below the C-pillars and on the spare tire cover. The TRD Spotivo Ultimo variant gets new alloy wheels similar to the old Toyota Fortuner TRD Sportivo, while the TRD Sportivo 7 model uses the same alloy wheels that were given with the previous Rush TRD trim.
