Toyota Rush, Daihatsu Terios

Dec 17th, 2006, in Business & Economy, by

The Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios will soon be launched.

Both PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM) and PT Astra Daihatsu Motor are hoping to sell one thousand units of the Toyota Rush/Daihatsu Terios per month in 2007, a 1500cc car that seats up to seven people.

Johnny Darmawan, the President Director of PT TAM hopes sales of the Rush will push Toyota’s market share up a few points to 35%. He believes that the Rush will not eat into the market share of other, similar Toyota models, the Kijang Innnova and Toyota Avanza, because they are different classes of vehicles. The latter two are multi-purpose vehicles (MPV) while the Rush is a 4×2 medium sports utility vehicle (SUV), he says.


Toyota Rush is the result of joint production with PT Astra Daihatsu Motor, with Daihatsu marketing the car under the name Terios. Whatever it is called the cars are produced at Daihatsu’s assembly plant at Karawang, West Java. In the past the two companies cooperated successfully to build the Toyota Avanza and Daihatsu Xenia models.

The cheapest manual version of the Rush will sell for 155 million rupiah, the Type G manual at 165 million rupiah, while the automatic is priced at 179 million rupiah on the road, available from 12th January 2007.

The Terios however will come more cheaply, with the standard model priced at 122 million rupiah, the TX manual at 151 million, and the TX automatic at 161 million.

On the manufacturing side 72% of the parts that make up the two models are made locally, 9% come from other Asean countries, while 19% are from Japan. The Vice President Director of Daihatsu, Sudirman, says that by 2008 95% of components will be produced locally, with new investment totalling 70 million dollars being ploughed into the company’s factory.

  14. Adriel says:

    Rush. Hhmm this car is really reliable & affordable. I’m glad that Indonesia motor issued more of SUV vehicles. Keep it up.

  15. Mohammed Khafi says:


    This is no more a sports utility vehicle than the Avanza, it is not available in Indonesia with 4X4, we will be getting the usual, simplified, no extras unless you pay for them dumbed down version, just look at the specifications on a website in Japan and compare prices and specifications. We always pay top dollar for the lowest specification vehicles.

    Hi to all,
    Not everyone is rich,beautiful or a movie star,so it’s nice to have a practical and economical in fuel {mini} suv for the mayority of us humble people in the world ,it must be great ,the proof is in the Toyota take over. GET SMART.

  17. Eric says:

    Toyota Rush should be considered as Daihatsu Terrios 2 as the Terrios 1 is name as Kembara in Malaysia. Both Rush and Terrios 2 is actually the same car like the Toyota Passo and the Daihatsu Siron. I saw it selling in Taiwan, the door panel and the dashboard are gorgeous.

  18. Adhie says:

    I just got RUSH today and my family looks very happy. I worked hard for this and I deserve this for me and them, a family car with low fuel, simply easy to maintain and least but not last, it’s TOYOTA.. the name you all know..

  19. Boedhi S says:

    Hi you ‘all

    By design, it’s not bad at all, i kind of like it. Suspension wise, they say it ain’t that good. It goes 1 per 13 on gas. So i guess it’s worth the money for a family car, especially in this over-crowded city(jakarta), where you are paying 10-30% on gas while idling.

  21. Hornbill says:

    HI Friends there,

    It is unofficial news that Toyota Rush will be launched soon in Malaysia where I am living in now. By looking at various www and comments on RUSH, I prepare to have it. I am presently doing research and do hope you guys can share your opinions or experiences on this SUV with me. Thanks a lot in advance.

    a) How about room space? The Kembara in Malaysia is too small in room space and do hope RUSH is not falling into the same fate.
    b) Power – refer to auto.
    c) Comfortability – is it pumpy like Avanza, especially for back seat passengers?
    d) Road holding – especially when making cornering?


  22. Celine says:

    Hi, Toyota Rush has just launched in Malaysia recently. Can I just enquire whether it is worth the price for this car? Is 1500 cc enough in power if the car is in full load – 7 people in the car?

    Do you know whether Daihatsu Terios is coming to Malaysia under Perodua as the replacement for Kembara?

    Please advise urgently as I am interested in RUSH but can’t make up my mind as it is only 1500 cc for 7 seaters.

  23. sbal Almaty says:

    Well? Just wait for some price increase. Daihatsu mostly unknown model in our country, on the contrary with Toyota.

  24. Riezlan says:

    Hi There………
    I’m going to buy this RUSH soon, most probably I will get it by March. However, I don’t know how was the overall performance and advantages of having it. I do test drive on this Rush, looks ok and quite fashionable in the market now.
    Please do put some advise for me on it. At least I know some of the advantages on it.


  25. Soleh says:

    Hi there, I’m Malaysian. Where can I buy for Daihatsu Terios used car and import to Malaysia. TQ

  26. Kamarul says:

    Hi Solleh, Hi all…

    Nah, ‘Terios 2’ will appear soon in Malaysia. It’s call Perodua Nautica. But i’m not sure whether Perodua will bring the 7 sitters one or not. But it is CBU and the price is expected at 90 over thousand. Wahhh hopefully I’m one of the early person to drive it as My Company is intend to buy it for replacing the Kembara… 🙂

  27. Taufik Hidayat says:

    I have Rush besides Altis as a weekend car. An ideal car for weekender, spending time with your family. A 7-seater SUV without compromising the safety and yet less fuel consumption. I do compare with Perodua Nautika the 5-seater plus 4WD. Its interior looks cheaper. The prices for both Rush and Nautika as been sold here in Malaysia, honestly, too expensive. Nautika price tag even way too expensive if quality is concerned. Anyway I’m Malaysian. Love to surf Indonesian and Thais website.

  28. Andrew says:

    Hello. I’m Indonesian. I just bought Toyota Rush. A little bit bumpy when only just 2 person but preety comfy with 6 person inside. About the power, not so great. But, preety good for 1.5 litre engine. When the RPM reached 4000, the engine sounds is a bit loud. For the fuel efficiency, 8 KM/L in city (20% freeway, 65% Traffic, 15% normal) and i fill it with just premium88. In Indonesia, Rush only have 5 seats. We have to buy for extra back seat, unlike Terios. But I chose Rush because it’s Toyota.

  29. Eddie Lou-Tan says:

    I have a Toyota Rush that I bought in Trinidad and it works very well comfortable and runs economicaly on gas, I love my RUSH YOU MUST GET ONE.

  30. Calvin says:

    I guess both of Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios are good-looking and very interesting to drive, eficient is the main thing!!! Especially nowaday the fuel prices still be fluctuative, I already tested that and i bet those are a good car by Toyota and Daihatsu.
