Rumion is a two-volume, released as part of the Corolla series. This car has all the basic qualities of the Corolla, complementing them with a comfortable and roomy interior. The exterior of Rumion is distinguished by straight lines, an angular, “box-like” silhouette of an individually designed body, the dimensions of which are unusual for a compact class: having a body of the third dimensional group with a total width of 1760 mm, Rumion seems short (although its length is 4210 mm) and at the same time high ( 1630 mm). It is worth paying attention to the lower line of the side glazing - it is also raised high, which not only makes the cabin very comfortable, but also creates an additional sense of security. The seats are equipped with an easy-to-use adjustment mechanism, plenty of space for all passengers, the comfort of the cabin is complemented by lighting in the ceiling and an audio system with nine speakers. The front panel of an unusual shape attracts not only with its unique design, in which round details and horizontal lines are intertwined, but also with a curious ergonomic solution, as if consisting of three layers - each for its own functions.
The basic equipment X provides a complete set of the most necessary equipment: manually controlled air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors, central locking, steering gear with vertical and telescopic adjustment, tinted windows, rear wiper. Fog lights, alloy wheels are optionally available. The volume of the luggage compartment is 310 liters, but it can be increased due to the transformable rear row. Extra space is under the boot floor and under the rear seat cushions. In addition to the abundance of all kinds of trays and pockets, on the side on the right rear pillar there is a deep pocket with a net. Large side doors provide convenient entry and exit, and the rear - ease of loading. In addition, the Rumion with its square horizontal-vertical silhouette and the height of the trunk is full-length along the entire length, as in the "station wagon", so that even tall objects will fit easily. All in all, the Rumion demonstrates amazing roominess. If we talk about top-end equipment, then it has the version of “1. 8 S ”, in which the car received climate control, a smart key with a comfortable access system and an engine start button, a large panoramic sunroof, aerodynamic body kit and other interesting options.
Two types of power units are installed on the Toyota Corolla Rumion: a 1.5-liter or 1.8-liter gasoline engines. All of them come in combination with a stepless variator, but in version S it is a variator, for which the sequential switching mode with 7 fixed gears is possible, and in the configuration “1. 8 S Aerotourer ”- also with shift paddles. As for the power of the engines, the most modest is 1NZ-FE with its 110 "forces" in the asset. The more powerful 2ZR-FE has different modifications: 128-136 hp on cars manufactured before November 2009 and 136-144 hp for later versions, when models with a 1.8-liter engine received the Valvematic new generation gas distribution mechanism, which makes the engine not only more powerful, but also more environmentally friendly. The front suspension of the Toyota Corolla Rumion is on suspension struts. Rear for front-wheel drive versions - torsion type. But all-wheel drive modifications are equipped with a double wishbone rear suspension, which positively affects the comfortable qualities of the car. But note that all-wheel drive is an attribute of only expensive modifications with a 1.8 engine. Although, of course, with a clearance of 140 mm, the Rumion habitat should consider only more or less decent roads, and all-wheel drive is an additional safety factor on slippery surfaces. Actually, the safety of the Corolla Rumion is that "horse" of the car in which it looks advantageously in almost all positions. Even the basic version of 2007 is equipped with the most modern equipment - front and side airbags, ABS (anti-lock braking), Brake Assist (auxiliary braking) and EBD (electronic brake force distribution) systems, side stiffeners, child safety seats, seat belts with tensioners and tension force limiters. In the top modifications, the equipment includes an electronic stability control system (ESP) and traction control (TCS).
Toyota Corolla Rumion is a typical mix of genres and styles that Japanese manufacturers often show when they want to catch a specific group of customers. In this case, those who need a roomy and comfortable car of compact size. Considering the price, cars with one and a half liter engines are most popular in the secondary market, but among more powerful modifications there is a great opportunity to choose, including all-wheel drive versions.
