Toyota Kirloskar Motor has announced a new MPV for the Indian market, it is called Rumion. It is a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga which has been one of the best-selling MPVs in the Indian market. As of now, the price and booking amount has not been announced. Being a Toyota, the Rumion comes with a standard warranty of 3 years/1,00,000 km. What's interesting is that Toyota is already selling Rumion in a few foreign markets.

Toyota has made some cosmetic changes to the Rumion. It gets a different grille which is inspired by the Innova, the front bumper is also different and gets a chrome surround for the air dam. On the sides, the only change is the different set of alloy wheels which are finished in a two-toned machined finish. It seems like the only change to the rear will be a chrome garnish.
