Featuring more body colours and changes to the interior and exterior.
Fuel efficiency has also been improved while noise levels are lower as a result of better insulation.
The Rush now comes in five body colours. Apart from the usual black and silver, it is now also available in Champagne Metallic, White and Grey Metallic.
The Rush sports a new grille complemented by a new front bumper with restyled integrated foglamp housings for the 1.5S variant on each lower corner.
The overall looks of the rear end of the Rush, with its wraparound glass, remain the same but there is now a number bumper with a restyled protector plate and newly-designed combination lights.
The interior now has a dark grey colour theme. Being darker, stains will not be so visible, something which will be appreciated by owners who lead active lifestyles.
The door trim, carpet mats, bag hook (under the passenger headrest) and centre console box have also been colour corodinated with the new theme.
The instrument panel has also received some changes to better coordinate with the new cabin colour. The gearknob is also new, both in colour and design.
On the centre part of the dashboard, the console has been completely redesigned and now has an analogue-styled presentation for the audio system area. The audio system has also been upgraded to a 2-DIN type and is compatible with MP3 and WMA music formats. Portable music players and USB thumbdrives can be connected to the unit so that personal selections of music can be played.
In response to customer requests for more flexibility, the new Rush now has a 50:50 split backrest for the third row of seats. This allows for partial folding of the third row backrest so that one person can be seated while extra luggage can be carried on one side. In the event that the third row of seating is not needed, it can be folded forward against the back of the second row to provide more cargo space.
For the latest engines, fuel efficiency has been improved around 5% through optimisation of the air-conditioning system while noise levels have been reduced at high speeds (100 – 120 km/h range). For the latter improvement, insulation has been added in the dashboard area and a resonator has also been fitted to the air-cleaner.
For urban use, the Rush will prove ideal as its turning radius is a tight 5.2 metres (kerb to kerb) which is impressive for a SUV. Rack and pinion power-assisted steering makes it easy to manoeuvre and the short overhangs also make positioning the vehicle in tight spots easy.
All three variants have a SRS airbag for the driver with the Rush 1.5S having an additional one for the front passenger as well.
The Rush comes in three variants: Rush 1.5S Automatic at RM96,990; Rush 1.5G Automatic at RM91,190 and Rush 1.5G Manual at RM88,190.
