Toyota Mark II Wagon is a continuation of a series of station wagons of a 2-liter class, the history of which began in 1984. The model belongs to the fifth generation in the back of the 70th series. Having undergone minor changes during the production, this station wagon lasted almost 13 years on the assembly line - during this time two generations of the sedan were replaced. Only in 1997, the succession relay passed to the Toyota Mark II Qualis wagon, which was already built on the basis of the front-wheel drive Camry Gracia. It should be noted that in those years, Mark II Wagon was in high demand at home, and individual specimens of workers are still actively used, which once again proves the incredible vitality of this model.
 The level of comfort and equipment of the Mark II Wagon corresponded to a sedan of the same time, and there was much of it that many passenger station wagons lacked in a lower class. For example, post-styling models were equipped with front fog lights, electric windows and side mirrors, a mandatory wiper on the rear door, power steering, a tachometer in the instrument panel, and a central lock. The equipment could be expanded due to a cassette recorder, air conditioning, alloy wheels, roof rails. In 1995, the car received wood inserts in the interior, a two-tone body. However, simpler cargo-passenger versions of Van were also produced.

 For these utilitarian station wagons, their own line of four-cylinder engines was intended: a two-liter diesel 2L (83 hp) and gasoline 1.8-liter 2Y-J (79 hp) and a 2-liter 3Y-E (97 hp) ) To equip the station wagon Mark II Wagon of the 1989 model, only one engine was supposed to be - a two-liter 1G-FE, an in-line six-cylinder. At that time - a novelty, replacing the previous 1G-E single-shaft engine, which was produced from 1979 to 1988. The new engine already had two camshafts, power 135 hp and a much higher torque, which was especially necessary for the car, nevertheless in terms of status intended for comfortable high-speed movement. This motor (1G-FE), due to its reliability, entered the legendary series, in 1997 it survived the modification and lasted longer on the assembly line in the series, until 2005. The front suspension is that on utility wagons, that on the Mark II Wagon - independent, spring, with MacPherson struts. The rear on simple delivery versions (Van) was dependent, with a continuous bridge. On the Mark II Wagon, as well as on the sedan, an independent two-link, spring suspension was used on the rear axle. On the road, a luxury station wagon was distinguished by a very soft “gait” corresponding to the status of a comfortable car. At the same time, the simplicity and reliability of the design ensured its durability. The car was equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic.

 Considering that the Mark II Wagon was produced for a long time, the approach to security was changing accordingly. The cars of the first series were equipped only with front three-point seat belts, and even that is not all - this has become the standard since 1991. Later, child seat fastenings, a brake light on the rear door and glazing with UV protection were added, which additionally ensured safety during movement. Since 1993, the body has been equipped with additional arches in the doors. Since 1996, it was optionally possible to put a driver's airbag.

 Toyota Mark II 70 series, including the Mark II Wagon, belongs to those legendary representatives of right-hand drive cars of the 80s, which had a significant impact, especially in the eastern regions of our country, on the formation of consumer tastes. Subsequently, this largely served as the starting point of sincere love for the representatives of the already left-hand drive Japanese automobile industry. If, for all its vitality, it’s already difficult for X70 sedans to boast of good technical condition, then the Mark II Wagon wagon, which was produced until the second half of the 90s, still remains an interesting option for an economical buyer.
