Toyota Mark X Final Edition Is The End Of The Road For Iconic JDM Sports Sedan

The Mark X has been around for over 50 years since it made its debut as the Mark II. However, production is scheduled to end in December and Toyota is sending off its domestic market sports sedan with a Final Edition of the 250S and 250S Four that are launching today.

The Mark II was first introduced back in 1968 and was later known in North America as the Corona Mark II, which was renamed the Cressida in 1977 and spawned nine different generations up until the sedan version was discontinued in 2004.

That’s when the Mark X took over, as two different generations were built – the latest one receiving multiple updates from 2009 until now.

The Mark X Final Edition comes loaded with exterior and interior features that set it apart from the rest of the range. On the outside, it has 18-inch dual-spoke alloy wheels and a custom front bumper, while customers can choose between the following three colors for the body: White Pearl Crystal Shine, Silver Metallic and Precious Black Pearl.

Inside, there is a dual-tone black and red synthetic leather upholstery for the seats and the door panels, while red contrast stitching can be found on the four-spoke steering wheel, gear lever shroud, doors, seat bolsters and armrest.

Last, but definitely not least, the special edition Mark X comes with Toyota’s Intelligent Clearance Sonar with Rear Cross Traffic Alert safety tech as standard.

    Mark X, Rear wheel drive sports sedan for the enthusiasts. Sad announcement but its also a sad reality that very few are buying sports sedans (Toyota plans to kill Lexus GS too) and most people just want crossovers 😕

    Kind of a pity, really.

    No that was the Century… (followed by the Crown).

  • Ricki Boo

    …and they were all ugly.

  • Seats & a steering wheel

    To be replaced by a bland front wheel drive cross over no doubt.

      Yep,
      like a Mitsby ASX.

  • StuffyAnt

    Well that’s the history) And some of them still look very strong and powerful)))

    Its one of those Toyota models that to me never really found much of a niche outside Japan, where it didn’t seem to have a niche either. Dates from a time when the Japanese could identify apparent gaps in the market that no-one else would even bother with.

      Really ? You’ve never heard of the Toyota Cressida ?

      • Astonman

        I remember my mom had two generations of Cressidas. They were nice for their times.

  • Paulbe

    True. The ES has grown so much its getting hard to see what the GS represents.

  • OdysseyTag

    Different badge for each gen, okay.

  • Marc Gruben

    Always liked the 2004-2009 Mark X, with the distinctive “3 headlight” lighting cluster. Toyota’s drug-induced ‘ugly styling virus” infected the Mark X from 2012 onward.

    Hope so, I will miss it

    A classic. What people don’t realize is that there were always TWO versions of the Mark 2 – a sedan ( which came to the west as the Cressida until 93 ) and the 4-door hardtop , always a sleeker version with frameless doors. Some of the pictures here are of the hardtop variants and you can see they look slightly better than the equivalent Cressida. In the late 80s some of these came with the Supra Straight Six ( 2.8l and then 3.0l ) and with RWD and that 80s Toyota build quality these things were machines….
