Might be work adding something about this car's male-focused marketing? --Hydenobuyuki (talk) 07:16, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
Most executive cars are male-focused anyway. Netrat (talk) 11:50, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
Strangely, this car in China, called Toyota Reiz, can be seen driven by many middle-age female drivers. Maybe it's because the name change, from Mark-X which is a sign or symbol to Reiz, which translates to Sharp Instinct or Sharp Will in Chinese, or ladies in China love to drift with a 200HP RWD. On the other hand, Toyota Camry has many middle-age male owners in China. Obviously Toyota is doing some thing different in marketing their products in China.

Okay, so everybody knows that the Lexus ES 350 is based on the North American Toyota Avalon. What about the GS and IS? They're based on the Mark X, so shouldn't the Mark X be called the "Japanese Avalon"?
I wish I had responded to this yesterday before so many articles were changed and changed back. No, the vehicles are loosely related but are not actually the same platform. The Avalon and Camry are FWD and the Lexus IS, Lexus GS and Crown are RWD. A single platform is really hard to share when the driving wheels are at different ends of the car. The Lexus ES is FWD and is essentially a Camry with really nice trim. The latest generation Avalon is heavily based on a stretched version of the Camry platform - it is arguable if they are the same platform or not. Many Toyota and Lexus vehicles do shared common styling themes but this does not make them the same car. So no, the Mark X is not a Japanese Avalon and the Crown is not a Camry.

Dos anybody have an official reference from Toyota that it is pronounced Mark Ex or Mark Ten? A video of a TV advert from Toyota would be ideal. If not, then we need to delete that phrase as just somebody's personal preference. Stepho talk 02:23, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
