Other than the Turbo version, the M-2 is just as bland as any other Camry. Its got a Corolla face with a back borrowed from ..God knows where. It is however ,roomier and more conformtable than the CL9...so a better car for long trips.
Toyota redesigned the Mark II in the late 90s, however that has also failed to set the sales chart alight. While Toyota continued to dominate the Japanese sales charts, the Mark II's appearance in the top 20 was increasingly rare.
Toyota has given up on the Mark II and has introduced a Mark X, incorporating many characteristics of earlier-model Chasers.
Mark II has some following in Pakistan, left over fans from the 1970s. Due to extremely low resale in Pakistan, these cars are being shipped over to 3rd world countries in Africa and of course....some to Pakistan. Still, not bad for a cheap car.
