The Toyota Mark II Blit was the replacement of the Toyota Mark II Qualis, and shared a platform with the Mark II rear wheel drive sedan. The Mark II Qualis was a rebadged (SXV20) Camry Gracia wagon, with front wheel drive. The Blit was introduced January 2002 after the Crown Estate and Caldina wagons ended production starting June 2007 due to consolidation efforts. Toyota's official Blit successor was a front wheel drive minivan, the Mark X Zio, from September, 2007. The Blit was a return to the Mark II platform with rear wheel drive with optional AWD and not a wagon version of the front wheel drive Camry. The Blit used straight-6 engines with an optional turbo that was discontinued May 2006. The engines used were the 2.0 L 1G-FE, 2.5 L 1JZ-FSE, 2.5 L 1JZ-GE, and 2.5 L turbocharged 1JZ-GTE.
