Large car from Toyota, slotting between mid-sized Corona and mainstay Crown flagship. Last Mark II to wear Corona tag; it disappeared during this generation. Exported as Toyota Cressida to North America, and differed mainly in grille—Japanese Cressida, and those exported to other countries, had a less formal front end. Plush, overstyled Japanese range for the most part, appealing primarily to home market, and was popular among taxi drivers wanting comfort.
