    Toyota has launched the new Rumion MPV in India with prices starting from Rs 10.29 lakh for the base S variant, going up to Rs 13.68 lakh for the top-end V automatic variant, both prices ex-showroom, India. Bookings, too, have officially commenced today for Rs 11,000.

    The Toyota Rumion is essentially a badge-engineered Maruti Suzuki Ertiga with minimal cosmetic changes. It’s also available with CNG right from launch, priced at Rs 11.24 lakh.

    1. Rumion prices start from Rs 10.29 lakh in India
    2. It’s based on the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga
    3. Is available in both petrol and CNG spec

    The Rumion is available in three trim levels – S, G and V – with the automatic gearbox on offer on all but the mid-spec G trim, while the factory-fitted CNG kit is available only on the base S trim. Here’s a detailed breakup of the prices.

    Toyota Rumion price (ex-showroom)
    VariantPrice
    SRs 10.29 lakh
    S ATRs 11.89 lakh
    GRs 11.45 lakh
    VRs 12.18 lakh
    V ATRs 13.68 lakh
    S CNGRs 11.24 lakh

    Compared to the Ertiga, which ranges between Rs 8.64 lakh to Rs 13.08 lakh, the Rumion has one lesser trim level and, therefore, a much higher starting price. The Rumion also commands a premium of Rs 51,000-61,000 over the Ertiga, depending on the trim.  

    Toyota Rumion exterior, interior and features

    Cosmetically, the Rumion isn't much differentiated from the Ertiga that it’s based on – the only differences are on the bumper where it gets new trapezoidal fog lamp housings, and a new Innova Crysta-like grille. There are also new dual-tone alloys, although the rest of the profile and rear end are identical to the Ertiga.

    The interior is also identical, continuing with the dual-tone black and beige dashboard finish with a faux wood insert, as is the beige upholstery. On the equipment front, the top-spec Rumion gets features like a 7.0-inch touchscreen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, automatic AC, analog instrument cluster with a digital MID, connected car tech, four airbags, ESC and more. The Rumion is only available in 7-seat configuration.

    Toyota Rumion engine and gearbox

    Under the hood, the Toyota Rumion gets Maruti’s 103hp, 137Nm, 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, and comes mated to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. In CNG-spec, the same engine produces 88hp and 121.5Nm, and only gets the manual gearbox option. Toyota claims the Rumion petrol has a fuel efficiency of 20.51kpl, while the Rumion CNG returns 26.11km/kg.

    Toyota Rumion warranty and rivals

    Toyota is offering a standard warranty of 3 years/1,00,000 km, which can be extended to 5 years/2,20,000 km. Primary rival to the Rumion will be its own sibling, the Ertiga, but it will also see competition from the entry-level variants of the Kia Carens (Rs 10.45 lakh-18.45 lakh) and the 6-seater Maruti Suzuki XL6 (Rs 11.56 lakh-14.82 Lakh).
