Toyota Rumion Review

We are talking about seven-seater MPV, which you’re already pretty familiar with as its paternal twin has been on sale in India for the longest time.

This is not the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, it’s the Toyota Rumion.

Yet another product Toyota has borrowed from the Suzuki garage under their existing alliance.

The two cars are just as different as night and later that night. let me tell you why you should consider the Rumion if you’re in the market for a three-row family-friendly vehicle. Toyota Rumion Review

Toyota Rumion Exterior styling

There’s very little that separate the Rumion from the Ertiga in terms appearance.

The easiest way, though, is that Toyota badge at the front. Even the front grill that bears the weight of that badge is different.

It’s inspired by the Innova Crysta, and the Silver rim around it is quite a neat touch. The front bumper is new as well, and so are the 15-inch Alloy wheels, which do look more attractive than the ones on the Ertiga.

From the rear, though, the two cars are identical, and the only way to tell them apart is by their badging. So if the two cars are so similar, why does the Rumion exist?

Cost-effective alternative to Innova

The Toyota Innova has been a huge success for the brand ever since the car was launched in 2005.Toyota Rumion Review

Better known for its affordability and reliability, the car was easily the best in its segment to carry 6-7 people around in.

Fast forward to 2024, the car has skyrocketed in prices, leaving a huge number of Toyota customers still demanding a three-row MPV, which is also affordable. Now, that’s what the Rumion on his playing field is.

Interior Styling Of Rumion

On the inside, the Rumion is even more identical to its Suzuki twin, than on the outside. Toyota Rumion Review

In fact, take away that Toyota logo on the steering wheel and you have yourself an Ertiga.

Touch Screen

The seven-inch touch screen, the analog gage cluster, the fake wood panel across the dash, and even the beige-colour seats are all very familiar.

Middle Row

The middle row is quite comfortable with roof-mounted aircon vents, big windows, and the 40/60 split bench even slides ahead to give additional space for the people in the third.

Third Row

Speaking of the third row, it’s easily accessible and while head and leg room are compromised, it’s still good enough for children and shorter adults, even if meant for a slightly longer journey.

Toyota Rumion Engine & performance

Powering this Toyota Rumion is the 1.5 liter 4 cylinder that produces about 103 PS and 139 Newton meters of torque. Toyota Rumion Review

Now, that can either be mated to a five-speed manual or this six-speed automatic. First things first, do not expect this powertrain to be sporty in any aspect.

It’s got a rather more composed and relaxed way of delivering its power.

It’s extremely easy to drive around city, and the engine does not demand too many throttle inputs either.

However we did notice a few jolts in the transmission, especially while maneuvering at slower speeds and while taking U-turns.

Rumion Ride Quality

Speaking of the ride quality, the suspension does a fantastic job ironing out those big potholes that you would encounter in a city. Toyota Rumion Review

The Rumion is also a great highway cruiser and is also capable of delivering when the road gets a bit tricky.

Although we wouldn’t recommend you pushing this around corners as there is a considerable amount of body roll.

Rumion vs Ertiga Prices

Yes, the Rumion is more pricey than the Ertiga. While the Ertiga starts from 10.12 Lakhs, the Rumion, on the other hand, starts from 12.33 Laks.

But variant for variant, the Ertiga is only about 60,000 to 80,000 Rupees more affordable than its Toyota counterpart.

Rumion vs Ertiga Warranty

So if I was in the market for a three-row affordable MPV, I would be toned between the Rumion and the Ertiga. Toyota Rumion Review

But here’s what I would consider. India, being a price-sensitive market, the Rumion commands about 70,000 more than the equivalent variant of that Ertiga.

But here’s what you get for for an extra price.

The Ertiga comes with a standard two-year warranty of 40,000 kilometers, which can be extended up to five years or 1,000 kilometers.

This Rumion, on the other hand, comes with a standard three-year warranty of 1,000 kilometers, which can be further extended up to five years or 2,000, 20,000 kilometers.
