To the imminent completion of the production of the iconic product, Toyota released its farewell version – it will be offered in versions 250S Final Edition (rear-wheel drive) and 250S Four Final Edition (all-wheel drive).

The brands were present in the Toyota range for over 50 years – the first Mark II appeared in 1968. The current Mark X generation X130 is available from 2009, this is the eleventh generation model.

In January, we recall, was released racing Toyota Mark X GRMN, its circulation – 350 copies.

Why Toyota decided to abandon the Mark X is not specified, but the reason is obvious: rear-wheel drive sedan has too limited demand, besides, the degree of unification of its platform with other Toyota cars is very low, which entails high production cost. This moment is especially sensitive in the light of the fact that in recent years, Toyota has been shifting its cars to a single TNGA modular platform.
