Toyota Kirloskar Motor launched the Rumion MPV in August last year. The car is based on the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga platform and arrived on the market with a price tag of Rs 10.29 lakh (ex-showroom). This marked the fourth time the two automakers worked together on badge-engineering a vehicle. The entry-level Rumion, the premium Innova Crysta, the Innova Hycross, and the Vellfire comprise the Japanese manufacturer's MPV lineup. Regarding its waiting period, customers who are planning to purchase the Rumion this month will need to wait anywhere between 24 to 28 weeks (6 to 7 months) after making their reservation. Depending on the location, dealership, model, colour option, and other factors, this time frame may change. It is important to note that the company has temporarily paused bookings for the CNG versions of this model. For more information, interested buyers can visit their nearest authorised Toyota dealership.
