Toyota Rumion Price & Comparison
The Toyota Rumion shares its core with the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, with minimal cosmetic alterations. It is also available in a CNG variant from the outset, priced at Rs 11.24 lakh.
The Rumion comes in three trim levels – S, G, and V. The automatic gearbox is offered on all variants except the mid-level G trim, while the factory-fitted CNG option is exclusively available on the base S variant. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the pricing.
When compared to the Ertiga’s price range of Rs 8.64 lakh to Rs 13.08 lakh, the Rumion starts at a significantly higher price due to having one less trim level. The Rumion also carries a premium of Rs 51,000-61,000 over the Ertiga, depending on the trim.
Toyota Rumion Specifications
In terms of exterior and interior, the Rumion closely resembles the Ertiga it’s based on, except for some changes to the front bumper with new fog lamp housings and a grille reminiscent of the Innova Crysta. The vehicle also gets new dual-tone alloy wheels, while the rest of the design remains similar to the Ertiga.
The interior also mirrors the Ertiga, featuring a dual-tone black and beige dashboard with faux wood accents and beige upholstery. Top-end features of the Rumion include a 7.0-inch touchscreen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, automatic AC, analog instrument cluster with a digital MID, connected car technology, four airbags, ESC, among others. The Rumion is available only in a 7-seat configuration.
Under the hood, the Toyota Rumion is powered by Maruti’s 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, generating 103hp and 137Nm of torque. It’s paired with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The CNG version of the same engine produces 88hp and 121.5Nm and is offered with a manual gearbox. Fuel efficiency figures stand at 20.51kpl for the petrol variant and 26.11km/kg for the CNG version.
Toyota offers a standard warranty of 3 years/1,00,000 km, extendable up to 5 years/2,20,000 km. The primary competitor for the Rumion is its sibling, the Ertiga, and it will also face competition from the Kia Carens (Rs 10.45 lakh-18.45 lakh) and the 6-seater Maruti Suzuki XL6 (Rs 11.56 lakh-14.82 lakh).
