    We'll bid our fair share of goodbyes in 2024 (just as we did across 2023), and the first casualty of this year is the Toyota Rush seven-seater.

    With the Daihatsu Terios receiving a facelift more than a week ago in Indonesia, it might seem possible that the same design update would be given to the Perodua Aruz in Malaysia albeit not this year. However, the Toyota Rush might not be given a revamp and instead will soldier on in its current form which was introduced back in 2018.
