For those who feel that the facelift back in 2009 could be better, the good news is that the 2013 model has a nicer looking front fascia with a new grille that sports a more pronounced "X" logo in the centre. Sporting an aggressive design, the headlights incorporate Bi-Xenon bulbs and daytime running LED lights. The tail lights and bumper have been redesigned as well.

Along with the 2013 iteration of the Mark X, Toyota has collaborated with its racing partner,
Gazoo Racing, to come up with the Gs variant. It comes with a body kit that comprise of a new grille, boot lid spoiler, bumper with side air vents, a diffuser housing four tail pipes and a set of 19-inch alloy wheels. On the inside, red stitching can be found on the leather seats, steering and gear stick. The white instrument panel gauges adds a sporty touch.

Two engines are available. The 2.5-liter V6 produces 200 bhp and 243 Nm of torque, while the 3.5-liter V6 develops 314 bhp and 380 Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. All-wheel-drive is optional.

Measuring 4,750mm long, 1,795mm wide and 1,435mm tall, the Mark X shares its platform with the Toyota Crown and the third generation Lexus GS sedan. Toyota claims that the 2013 Mark Xs chassis been tuned for better handling with a quieter ride due to usage of additional damping materials.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
