During our tests, the Toyota Rush took 15.7 seconds to complete the 0-100 km/h sprint.
With 105 PS and 136 Nm available, the Toyota Rush is not exactly powerful.
It has sufficient power to propel itself up to speed, though if more power is needed, then the Honda BR-V (120 PS/145 Nm) is a better option.
Gear shifts of the 4-speed automatic are smooth, though kick-down could be more responsive.
The transmission does take its own sweet time to downshift.
Steering and Handling
The Toyota Rush's steering is on the light side, which eases maneuvering. Couple that with the tight turning radius and 360-degree view monitor, parking the Rush is a breeze.
Just like the Perodua Aruz, the Rush is built on a (semi) body-on-frame platform.
As such, handling cannot match rivals with a unibody construction, like the Honda BR-V.
The Honda BR-V, despite being an MPV, offers a more refined ride over the Aruz, exhibiting a car-like driving experience.
