Toyota Rush – Don’t rush into buying one until you read this

The Toyota Rush is an SUV that seats 7 people. The B-segment SUV is Toyota’s answer to the Honda BR-V. Both models follow the concept of offering a SUV-looking body with seven seats. It’s essentially an MPV for people who don’t want an MPV. Is the Toyota Rush a good car for families? What are the common problems and common complaints? A high 220 mm ground clearance SUV that seats 7, sounds like a great concept, except for one problem, and it’s a very huge one too. The Perodua Aruz is essentially

Is it true that the Proton X70 suffers from high fuel consumption?

Weighing nearly 1.7 tonnes for just a five-seater SUV, the Proton X70 is the heaviest C-segment SUV. Naturally, its fuel consumption is higher than the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, or even Nissan X-Trail. But how much higher? Curiously, Proton doesn’t provide any official fuel consumption data for the Proton X70, which is powered by a turbocharged 1.8-litre direct injection engine. A similarly turbocharged but 1.5-litre Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P has a claimed fuel consumption of 7.0-litre/100 km. The equiv

The few areas the Toyota Avanza is better than the Perodua Aruz/Toyota Rush, what are they?

With a trendier looking SUV body and better safety features, it’s understandable that the Toyota Rush/Perodua Aruz twins are taking much of the limelight away from their fraternal twin the Toyota Avanza. To recap, the seven-seater Toyota Rush/Perodua Aruz are two of the same car developed by Toyota’s compact car subsidiary Daihatsu. Both models ride on identical mechanicals as the Toyota Avanza, which also has seven seats, sharing the same 1.5-litre (2NR-VE) Dual VVT-i aluminum block engine, pai

In Brief: 2019 Honda BR-V, if only the Rush/Aruz ride and drive this well

Model | Gallery The Honda BR-V is a budget seven-seater multi-purpose vehicle (MPV). If you have a young family and is looking for a seven-seater, the BR-V is a decent choice. It offers a lot more space than a similarly priced Honda City. The 201 mm ground clearance (19 mm lower than Toyota Rush/Perodua Aruz) is also just right - not too tall that it becomes difficult for young children or even the elderly to climb into, and not too low that it makes it difficult for older family members to get

Perodua Aruz vs Toyota Rush, the choice is obvious

Rebadging is a common practice in the auto industry, as manufacturers often rebadge different models and selling it as theirs. By now, Malaysians are familiar with rebadging, for better or worse.
