Recently, the automotive world has received a lot of good news because there are several car manufacturers that have released the latest versions of their cars in 2021. One that has been released is the Toyota Rush 2021.
Not long ago, the Toyota Rush 2021 was officially launched in the Philippines. If we look at the exterior, there are no significant changes, but reportedly significant changes will be seen in the cabin and its features.
Toyota Rush 2021 is indeed one of Toyota’s flagship SUV products. This car, which has been active in the Indonesian automotive world for a long time, has its own fans, and the news of the arrival of the Toyota Rush in 2021 is certainly good news that is very much awaited.
Well, before we buy the Toyota Rush 2021, of course, there are funds that we must prepare first. Not only to buy the car, but also other additional costs such as periodic service fees. Then, how much is the periodic service fee for Toyota Rush 2021?
Maintenance Costs for Toyota Rush 2021
From Toyota itself, there is no official statement about how much it costs to periodically service the Toyota Rush 2021. For comparison and estimation, we will discuss the current Toyota Rush service fees.
In the first stage of periodic servicing or when the car has reached a distance of 10,000 km, the cost of servicing the Toyota Rush is around IDR 426,000. In the second and third stages, or the distance between 20,000 km and 30,000 km, the costs involved are still the same as the first stage.
The increase in service costs will begin to appear in the fourth stage of periodic servicing, when the vehicle has reached a distance of 40,000 km. At this stage, the estimated cost for periodic servicing is IDR 1,040,000.
Then if the vehicle has reached a distance of 50,000 km, it means it’s time for the fifth stage of periodic servicing. At this stage, the costs for servicing the service fall back down, the same as for the first to third stages, which is around IDR 426,000.
Then the next stage is the sixth stage where the vehicle has reached a distance of 60,000 km. At this stage, the increase in service fees occurs again, and the range of service fees to be paid is around IDR 1,000,000.
In the seventh service stage, service costs have decreased again, although only slightly. Service is carried out when the vehicle has reached a distance of 70,000 km, and the cost required at this stage is around Rp. 955,000.
Entering the eighth service stage, where our vehicle has covered a distance of 80,000 km. In this eighth stage of periodic service, Toyota Rush will require the highest service fee. The service fee required is around IDR 2,150,000.
Service costs in the ninth stage or when the car has traveled 90,000 km again decrease and is the same as for the seventh stage service. Meanwhile, for the tenth stage of service, which is carried out if the vehicle has reached a distance of 100,000 km, the service fee required is around Rp1,360,000.
For more details, see the summary of the Toyota Rush periodic service costs in the table below.
It can be seen from the table above that from a distance of 10,000 km to 100,000 km, Toyota Rush requires a total service fee of IDR 9,164,000. This cost can certainly change according to what components are replaced during servicing and how the vehicle is in service. From this, we can predict that the 2021 Toyota Rush periodic service costs are likely to be in the same price range.
Toyota Rush’s journey in Indonesia
Before discussing the service costs of the Toyota Rush 2021, it is better if we first examine the long journey of the Toyota Rush in Indonesia. Toyota Rush is an SUV product that was created as a result of Toyota’s collaboration with Daihatsu, a twin with Daihatsu Terios.
At the time of its launch, the Toyota Rush was successful in becoming one of the most popular compact SUV car models in Indonesia. Toyota Rush was first present to enliven the Indonesian automotive world in 2006, not long after the release of the Toyota Avanza and Daihatsu Xenia.
At first glance, the Toyota Rush looks the same as the Daihatsu Terios, but it turns out that these two cars have several differences. The Daihatsu Terios is made in a 7-seater configuration while the Toyota Rush is made in a 5-seater configuration. The presence of Toyota Rush in Indonesia has successfully boosted sales of Toyota SUVs from 3,000 units per year to 30,000 units per year.
In 2009, Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios received another facelift from Toyota and Daihatsu. At that time, changes made to this car only covered the exterior, such as changes to the grille with a cross in the middle of the logo, fog lamps or fog lamps, as well as the addition of bumper guards on the front and rear.
Then in October 2010, the Toyota Rush again received minor changes. At that time, Toyota Rush presented a new variant, namely the Toyota Rush G with a choice of automatic transmission. Several changes to the body were made, namely, the grille which became denser, the replacement of the taillights, and the bumper with a new pattern. In this new model, the Toyota Rush also gets an additional roof rail and wider tires to add an aggressive impression.
In 2013, Toyota Rush again offered its new variant after years of vacuum. At that time, the new variant offered was the Toyota Rush TRD Sportivo. When viewed from a design perspective, the Toyota Rush TRD Sportivo is still the same, but this variant has received various improvements compared to the previous version. One of them is on the exterior, where this variant undergoes changes to the spoiler and the front and rear bumper designs.
Toyota Rush received another change in 2016. The car configuration now applies a 7-seater configuration or can accommodate up to seven passengers. In addition, the Toyota Rush TRD Sportivo variant was also upgraded to the Toyota Rush TRD Sportivo Ultimo. This latest variant already uses a new front and rear suspension in the form of a New Shock Absorber and TRD’s typical Dual Rate Coil Spring so that it can provide better comfort and stability when driving at high speeds.
Then in 2017, the latest generation of Toyota Rush was introduced. The Toyota Rush, which was released in 2017, has completely changed its design, features, and engine.
This latest generation is equipped with several new additional features, namely the Engine Start / Stop Button which allows the driver to start the car without having to use a key. The engine used in the 2017 Toyota Rush is also new because it uses a 2NR-VE, Dual VVT-i engine, with a 1.5-liter capacity that can produce power of 104 PS and torque of 136 Nm.
