Toyota Rush 2015 Review

Toyota Rush 2015 Review

The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a midsize SUV that harks back to the company's iconic FJ40 Series of Land Cruisers. Like the old FJ40, the Toyota FJ Cruiser has superior off-road capabilities. It's built on a truck-based, ladder-frame chassis and features a stout suspension and drivetrain, sharing its underlying hardware with Toyota's 4Runner SUV. Toyota designed the FJ Cruiser to be a bit more specialized, however. Compared to the 4Runner, it's smaller, less expensive and more capable in off-road situations, and it's meant to appeal to younger and more active consumers.

Toyota Rush 2015 Review

His car is fun, looks like fun and a decent off-road vehicle with the Prado underbelly. It is a Toyota so reliable they say though I had to take it back a couple of times with suspension issues and other cosmetic issues. Not the best 4wd though as I've been in better once, but decent off road. It does drive well and is different in terms of looks, though there is a bit of body roll. Unfortunat ely that is where it ends. If you have kids, they'll hate the car. It probably is the most impractical vehicle on the planet and don't even think of buying it if you have a family. The rear vision through the back windows are terrible, you have to rely on the reverse cameras when reversing while 4wding, except these might be cluttered with mud so no visibility at all you'll get more in and out of the car than ever. The size of the car means it is hard to load all your gear when going on long trips, it is a dog on long trips to say the least. The kids cannot see out of the windows in the back and getting in and out of the car is always a mission. The back seats are terrible. Also no window to open in the back. They simply hate this thing so will your partner as they have to deal with the complaints or window requests. Loading the car is even worse with seats that don't fold down properly and really lack of proper space for touring boxes. The interior is very plastic and also looks plastic. Loading space are limited. The interior looks and feel like something from the 80's and maybe that is what they wanted it to be! The 4L sucks fuel, is a thirsty beast when loaded off-road, you will never get below 15L/100 and no diesel option is available. You have to use special accessories as it is a very different shaped vehicle. The car is a toy and that is what you should buy it for, an expensive one it is. Been in a wrangler jeep, land rover and G class merc and it is by far more practical than this vehicle, is a wannabe Jeep/land rover and a toy and if that is what you want, then it will suite your image, but don't buy it as a tourer or a family car. I'd also not recommend towing with this vehicle, the simple reason is NO visibility and the fuel usage goes through the roof. I'd much rather buy a diesel to tow.
