Toyota has quietly unveiled the 2013 Mark X facelift for Japan.

Distinctively styled, the model has an aggressive front fascia with a prominent grille and LED-infused headlights. There's also bulging fenders, wraparound taillights and a trunk-mounted spoiler. Overall, the car measures 4,750mm long, 1,795mm wide and 1,435mm tall with a wheelbase that spans 2,850mm.

Entry-level models are sparsely equipped, but higher-end variants such as the Mark X Premium and the sporty 350S G's offer leather upholstery, heated front seats and stainless steel door sill plates. Customers can also order an infotainment system with GPS navigation, a TV tuner and 12 speakers.

Under the hood, two engines are available. The 2.5-liter V6 produces 203 PS (149 kW / 200 hp) and 243 Nm (179 lb-ft) of torque, while the 3.5-liter V6 develops 318 PS (234 kW / 314 hp) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. Both engines are connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels but all-wheel is optional.

The 2013 Toyota Mark X is currently on sale and pricing starts at 2,440,000 yen.
