Toyota Motor has revealed the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga-based seven-seater Rumion MPV in South Africa. While Toyota Kirloskar Motor in India sells the re-badged Baleno as Glanza and Vitara Brezza as Urban Cruiser, Toyota Motor in South Africa also has the re-badged Brezza.

Toyota Rumion clearly looks identical to the Maruti Ertiga MPV sold in the Indian market and a few other regions as well. Rumion gets a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that also does duty on Ertiga. The engine churns out a maximum power of 103 hp and peak torque of 138 Nm.  It comes mated to a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission.

Among a slew of features in the cabin, all windows inside the Rumion can be electrically operated while the driver's window can be operated by a one-touch up/down function. The touchscreen infotainment system comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionalities. Further, these can be operated wirelessly using Bluetooth functionality. A multi-mode display displays trip information such as fuel consumption, average speed and outside temperature. 

Toyota Rumion offers standard safety features such as airbags for the driver and front passenger, rear doors fitted with child locks, anti-lock-brakes and electronic brake-force distribution.

Toyota is likely to introduce the re-badged Rumion MPV in the Indian market in the future but there is no official confirmation from the company yet.
