Toyota Motor has filed a trademark for the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga-based Toyota Rumion in India, hinting that the automaker is looking at launching the MPV in the country sometime soon, and under the same name. The vehicle, which is the third rebadged Maruti Suzuki model to be sold under Toyota brand, had been recently revealed in South Africa.

Though the automaker has not officially confirmed launch plans of Rumion in India, the filing of the trademark is a point to this direction. Notably, the Rumion MPV that is on sale in South Africa is manufactured in India, as part of the agreement between Toyota and Maruti to supply India-made Suzuki models to South Africa.
