Summer is in full swing and the sun is beating down on us at Vermosa Sports Hub in Imus, Cavite. We await the delivery of a Toyota Rush unit because the driver might have taken a wrong turn somewhere, but all is good.
With the kind of hype that surrounds this vehicle, the added suspense is fitting. We already knew about the Rush early on, and it was only a matter of time before we would get our hands on it.
In fact, we decided to push our deadline back a bit to make sure that we’d have Toyota’s newest SUV on our cover. Our publisher was shocked when I told her the scheduled date of this shoot, actually. It really is quite late in the month already for a Top Gear Philippines production. Our explanation? It’s a rush cover—insert comedy snare drum here.
