    Default Presence of Mark X

    A few months back when I visited Pak, I saw Mark X for the very fist time of my life. And offcourse I liked it too. But it was stunned when a cousine of mine who had bought a Mark X 300G, insisted me to drive his Mark X. what a performance man. For reaching 100 from 0 it took just about 5-6 sec. I really appriciate this car. But I am wondering why this great car of toyota does not have significant presence in international markets. I never saw it here in dubai, never in Uk. Neither I think it is offered for sale in USA. What is the logic behind. Though I do not own any high performance vehicle here in dubai but I have driven a variety of really cool vehicles including Lexus ES350, Mustang GT. But driving that mark-X was really an unforgettable experience

    LOLS on those who are comparing mark x with the benz.,bmws.
    I ve driven mark x several times cuz it belongs to my cousin.But when i drove my uncle's W202 C230 kompressor.I was stunned and forgot mark x in 1 second.W202 Merc is better than a mark x bros.So no question about benz's cars.But i have to admire that mark x is 300g V6 is powerfull.But still comfort,performance,handling and solid build quality lacks in mark x.

    I hope you take my suggestion in a positive way because it is certainly intended to be just that i.e positive.
    Ok
    It is impossible to please everybody.

    I think if Toyota were offering Mark X in american and other market , it was nothing to do with the decrease in sales of Lexus IS. As many of companies already selling their same/similar vehicles on different prices and with different badges. Look at GM corp, what they are doing. Same frame for Chevy Thaoe, Caddy Esclade and GMC Yukon. But all these models are being purchased by their brand loyals without any thing. Same is the case for Ford. It sells Edge and then the Lincoln MKX. But there are only a few differences. Crown Victoria from Ford is another example. Land Rover LR2 and Ford Explorer are almost same. Even toyota is also playing the same game. Its has been selling 2of its re-badged vehicles (Land Cruiser and LC Prado) under the name of Lexus. There are a lot of such examples from all the automobile giants world wide. So the surviival of Lexus IS could not be the reason of not offering Toyota Mark X in international markets...?

    @SaM_vitz007
    You are right dear. Mark X can't be the perfect rival of benz and bimmers. But still due to its performance and every thing it is equipped with, it can give a tough time to the high ranking vehicles. You can compare the performance figures and then the price figure ;-) and than you might thump up for mark x.
