The tested model had 1.5-litre petrol engine, and weighed 1290 kg kerb. The new Rush offers 6 airbags, ABS, Electronic Stability Control and Seatbelt Reminder System (front and rear occupants) standard across all variants.
Regarding the frontal impact for adult occupants, the report said that the driver’s head and knee scored full four points in the test.
