No major changes onboard save for some necessary badging and minor cosmetic upgrades

  • Changes on the outside include a redesigned chrome-slatted grille with the ‘Toyota’ badge. 

  • The Rumion is available in four colours: Azure Blue, Seal Grey Metallic, Blazing Red, and Shadow Black Pearl.

  • These colours are different from the Ertiga’s palette. 

  • The cabin gets an all-black theme with black seat upholstery.

  • Features remain the same, including a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, steering-mounted controls, and a rear parking camera. 

  • Continues with the Ertiga’s 105PS 1.5-litre petrol engine, paired with 5-speed manual and 4-speed AT. 

The Toyota Rumion, essentially a rebadged Maruti Ertiga, has been launched in South Africa. It is expected to arrive in India under the Maruti-Toyota partnership as the JV’s fourth offering after the Glanza, Urban Cruiser, and the upcoming Ciaz-based sedan.

While the Ertiga is available in four trims (LXI, VXI, ZXI, and ZXI+), the Rumion is offered in three (table above). Also, as seen with the Glanza and Urban Cruiser, Toyota has given the base variant a miss, starting the MPV’s lineup with the mid-spec variant. 

On the outside, the Rumion MPV gets a redesigned grille and the ‘Toyota’ badging as the only changes. The colour options, however, are different from the Ertiga.

Inside, the Rumion gets an all-black cabin (as opposed to the Ertiga’s beige). That said, the dash layout and features are the same as the Maruti offering. Features in the Toyota MPV include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, steering-mounted audio controls, dual front airbags, and a rear parking camera.

There are no changes to the mechanicals; the Rumion uses the Ertiga’s 105PS/138Nm 1.5-litre petrol engine, paired with 5-speed manual and 4-speed AT options. 

The Maruti Ertiga doesn’t have a direct rival; it’s positioned between the more affordable Renault Triber and the higher-priced Toyota Innova Crysta and Mahindra Marazzo. The Rumion is expected to be priced on par with the Maruti MPV in India, that is the carmaker launches it here.
