Watch the video below to obtain more information on the new Toyota Rumion.


While it is to be expected, comparisons between the new Toyota Rumion and its older cousin, the Toyota Avanza, are tedious. The Toyota Avanza was the flagship model when it came to the MPV segment. However, with the Toyota Rumion, the brand has introduced a new, better-looking, option for those in the market for a multi-purpose vehicle. The new range is available in 5 different variants:

  • Toyota Rumion 1.5 S MT
  • Toyota Rumion 1.5 SX MT
  • Toyota Rumion 1.5 SX AT
  • Toyota Rumion 1.5 TX MT
  • Toyota Rumion 1.5 TX AT

There is a noticeable shift with the Toyota Rumion, with this new range decked with attractive seat trims and faux wood instrument panels (for the later models in the range). As expected, Toyota has ensured that the interior is practical, spacious, and reasonably pleasant. It also embodies a definite edge of sophistication that was not present in the Avanza.​

The exterior is where aspects of a facelift are truly present. A standout here is the tapered headlights, which give the Rumion a sleek feel. The new range is also available in the following colours: Mystic Pearl White, Azure Blue, Seat Grey Metallic, Cedar Brown, Autumn Blaze Red, Premium Liquid Silver, Shadow Black Pearl. These touches are all important to note, as all vehicles in the MPV family are not renowned for good looks. Much like performance ( which we will look at shortly), these models are not required to look suave by any means.

Spacious interior aside for just a moment, Toyota have long had a reputation for being trustworthy and solid when we analyze the performance aspect. The Toyota Rumion delivers here by offering a drive that is comfortable, safe, and somehow manages to feel premium. The four-cylinder engine is no racehorse on the freeway, but we do not require it to be. It is the sturdiness that you want when transporting a number of people, not a chequered flag.

Another winner with the new Toyota Rumion is the pricing, with its entry model, the Toyota Rumion 1.5 S MT retailing at R258 000. It is here that we can welcome comparisons with the Toyota Avanza, as the Rumion is a cheaper (and more attractive) option.

  • Pros and Cons Of Toyota Rumion.


Vehicles that belong to the multi-purpose market have a certain reputation. Indeed, aspects of comfortability and space are always reinforced with every launch, but exterior aesthetics are not. No one requires a handsome drive when we only expect one that is pleasant and agreeable. Toyota is slowly ushering in a new era by ensuring that the new Rumion flirts with being sleek, but remains as sturdy and practical as ever.
