Currently on sale

Toyota has quietly unveiled the 2013 Mark X facelift for Japan.

Distinctively styled, the model has an aggressive front fascia with a prominent grille and LED-infused headlights. There's also bulging fenders, wraparound taillights and a trunk-mounted spoiler. Overall, the car measures 4,750mm long, 1,795mm wide and 1,435mm tall with a wheelbase that spans 2,850mm.

Entry-level models are sparsely equipped, but higher-end variants such as the Mark X Premium and the sporty 350S G's offer leather upholstery, heated front seats and stainless steel door sill plates. Customers can also order an infotainment system with GPS navigation, a TV tuner and 12 speakers.

Under the hood, two engines are available. The 2.5-liter V6 produces 203 PS (149 kW / 200 hp) and 243 Nm (179 lb-ft) of torque, while the 3.5-liter V6 develops 318 PS (234 kW / 314 hp) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. Both engines are connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels but all-wheel is optional.

The 2013 Toyota Mark X is currently on sale and pricing starts at 2,440,000 yen.

There are many beautiful Toyotas in Japan. The carswe ger are boring. But why they don't replace the Camry with this? This is a brelliant looking car. It will be a huge hit if they market it world wide.

A pitty that it's only available with automatic geabox. But this is quite something I think. Especially the first 2 pictures look, well mean. Only the interior and the rear lights of the standard car look dull. But still, if toyota only replaced the horrible avenis for this. But japan always keeps the best for them selves. If they wouldn't I'n sure their cars would sell better. Another thing I don't really get, is are they adicted to petrol? oK, they might but lots of small cars. But it seems that every car like this is only on sale with a v6 petrol or an L4 petrol. No diesel. Anyway, bring this car to the rest of the world. GT86 sedan LOL.
