Big deal, it appears to be nothing more than a Camry Matrix.

Kind of Toyota's R-class style vehicle, looks like...Lexus will probably get a variant. Looks like it's a 4 seater w/ buckets all around. The videos are interesting on the Mark X Zio site... 4 40-something guys out stargazing with a snippet of music that sounds a bit like Oasis..

The first two are valid comparisons reg, despite what Toyota likes to call it. They have two other very similar models which are marketed as D-segment MPVs (Honda's JDM and export Odyssey is now much lower and a little longer though). The US model may be larger than this Japanese version, unlike Chris Doane, I haven't seen it yet. This is thing is a desecration of the rwd sport sedan Mark X name, but wagons are largely perceived as low-rent commercial vehicles in Japan, so this is intended as a more aspirational replacement for the late Mark II Blit rwd sport wagon. Think of it as part minivan, part Malibu Maxx—something for people who like the space and higher seating but don't want an SUV and wouldn't be caught dead in a wagon or minivan.
