Like the all-new Mazda 6 we showed you this morning? Here’s more sedan from Japan, this time the facelifted second-gen Toyota Mark X for 2013.
Our urban readers might be familiar with the older version of the Mark X, a JDM sedan shipped in by grey importers. The larger, second-gen Mark X – introduced late 2009 in Japan – is less common here.
The facelift gives the Mark X an aggressive front end with a chain-style grille featuring the trademark big ‘X’. In fact, the face itself has the X-shape now, with sharp headlights completing the new mask. There are new design tail lamps at the back. Not fierce enough? Check out the version by Toyota G Sports in the gallery.
Two engines are available for Japanese buyers. A 2.5 litre V6 produces 203 PS and 243 Nm of torque, while the top model gets a 3.5L V6 with 318 PS and 380 Nm. Both naturally aspirated engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Power goes to the rear wheels, as it has always been, but one can opt for AWD.
A gallery, including pics of the cabin, is after the jump.
