Toyota Rumion Design
As mentioned above, the Toyota Rumion is essentially a cross-badged version of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, and design-wise, it is easily recognisable. However, Toyota has made a few minor changes to give it a slightly different identity from its donor model. These include an Innova Hycross-inspired grille, a reworked bumper with triangular fog lamp housings, newly designed alloy wheels, and a chrome strip at the tailgate that connects the LED taillights.
