Look at the stats at :

Toyota is loosing out on the compact SUV market.

Glad to see they now have this:
https://www.wheels24.co.za/NewModels/ba ... t-20180619

Code: Select all

Remember the Terios, the compact SUV from Daihatsu available here up until March 2015 when the Japanese brand decided to pull out of South Africa? Well, it is on its way back; only this time in Toyota guise…

The local launch of the new Rush, Toyota’s version of the Daihatsu Terios, is set for early next month – as confirmed by a spokesman from Toyota SA and heralded by recent sightings of the compact SUV on transport trucks, as well as a test unit, apparently on its way to a photo shoot, being spotted at the Lanseria Airport.

This is an interesting development, considering a statement by Imperial Daihatsu back in 2015 that it was “unlikely” that Daihatsu will be made available locally badged as Toyotas. 

The new Rush is set to arrive locally in July 2018.

Looking very similar to the Rav and even the Honda CRV.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Strange, if you have the Fortuner and RAV4 already on the market, why another one?

Because it is smaller, falls into the small SUV market where they have none. The small SUV is the more "affordable" market, like Jimny, some other small Suzuki's, Ford Eco Sport, etc. Small SUV is not necessarily 4x4

Funny that, It actually made me think of the Ananza, Another taxi for our roads?
