Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has introduced a new variant of Rumion, G-AT, along with the resumption of E-CNG bookings. Priced at 13 lakhs ex-showroom, the new variant is set to commence deliveries from May 5, 2024. Booking the vehicle requires a fee of 11,000.

Earlier the company had halted the bookings for the Toyota Rumion E-CNG variant, stating that this had been done due to the overwhelming response for the MPV. A statement from Toyota read, “The demand has surpassed our expectations, resulting in a long delivery time across variants, especially for the E-CNG option. This has necessitated us to temporarily halt bookings of the E-CNG option ONLY to avoid customer inconvenience due to a longer waiting period.”

Getting to the new variant, the Toyota Rumion G-AT variant is powered by a 1.5-litre K series petrol engine paired with a 6-speed Automatic Transmission, featuring Neo Drive (ISG) technology. The petrol variant delivers 102 bhp at 6000 rpm and torque of 136.8 Nm at 4400 rpm, while the CNG variant offers 87 bhp output at 5500 rpm and torque of 121.5 Nm at 4200 rpm.

Equipped with a 17.78 cm Smartplay Cast Touchscreen audio system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the new variant also features Toyota i-Connect, providing remote control for climate, lock/unlock, hazard lights, and other connected features. Advanced safety features include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, Hill Hold, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), and more.

Expanding its lineup, the Toyota Rumion now offers seven variants for the manual transmission option: S, G, and V grade, and three variants for the automatic transmission option: S, G, and V grade. Additionally, the E-CNG option is available with the S variant. The Toyota Rumion range starts at 10.44 lakh ex-showroom and goes up to 13.73 lakhs.

The Toyota Rumion, essentially a Maruti Suzuki Ertiga in a different badge, gains its own character through cosmetic alterations. These include a grille reminiscent of the Innova, a revised front bumper with a chrome-edged air dam, and unique alloy wheels sporting a two-toned machined finish. Rear modifications appear limited to the addition of a chrome garnish.
