The much-anticipated Rumion from Toyota has finally made its way to India. The standard S version is priced at Rs 10.29 lakh, while the top-of-the-line V automatic model costs Rs 13.68 lakh. Both prices are ex-showroom. Along with this, the manufacturer is currently accepting pre-orders for the MPV at a deposit of Rs 11,000. In addition, the vehicle comes with a CNG powertrain option, which costs Rs 11.24 lakh in India. The recently released Rumion has some cosmetic updates that distinguish it from the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. It boasts fresh dual-tone alloy wheels, a modified front bumper, and a trapezoidal grille that resembles the Innova Crysta. This new MPV is essentially a Maruti Suzuki Ertiga with a different name, so without further ado, let's explore it more.

The car also features new dual-tone alloy wheels.
