We have seen Toyota Rush many times on Pakistani roads but all of these are imported because Rush not officially launched and not manufactured locally in Pakistan. There is a good news for those who need a SUV with 7 seats because according to details in next six or seven months this vehicle will launched officially in Pakistan. Last year Rush was launched in India and by considering the needs, requirements and competition in Pakistan market Indus motor Toyota planned to bring in the Rush to Pakistan market. Yet it is not confirmed that it will be a seven seated version or different version for Pakistan market and if it released as seven seated version it will not only compete with SUV but MPV as well, In Pakistan main competitors of Rush will be Honda Vezel / HRV and Suzuki Vitara.

This will also be the first seven seated SUV by Toyota while in the past Terios was available under Daihatsu brand that was discontinued after 2010 which was a mini SUV with 600 cc engine.
It is a 1.5 liter SUV that has great exterior design and list of up to date features, as it will compete against Suzuki Vitara and Honda Vezel so its expected price will be in between 35 to 40 lacs. Considering this as an alternative to the Honda BRV MPV vehicle will be a great choice because Honda BRV didn’t have the competitive build quality, design and features in the market.
SUV’s are in more demand all around the world so does in Pakistan and this demand will surely bring the new competitors and competition which is in favor of community. There is no official date for its launch but more or less it will launch in next 6 months.
