The second-generation Corona Mark II was based on a new X series platform abandoning the compact Corona T series chassis. The X10s are sedans and wagons, while the X20 is a two-door coupé. The inline six-cylinder "M" series engine was borrowed from the S60 series Crown, in order to compete better with the Nissan Bluebird / Datsun 610 in North America, and the Nissan Laurel in Japan.
The styling used on the second generation was dramatically different from the first, showing similarities to the S60 series Crown. The appearance reflected a popular styling trend that appeared during the 1960s and 1970s internationally, called "Coke bottle styling" which Toyota adopted for only this generation of the Mark II. The version sold as a wagon in export markets, and was marketed as a van, intended for commercial usage, in the Japanese domestic market. Due to the introduction of the Toyota Hilux pickup truck, the previously offered Mark II pickup was discontinued.
It was originally only available with the smallest 1.7-litre inline-four. All Mark II engines are of an overhead camshaft design, with the sporting GSS even featuring a twin-cam design. The X10 through 13 are sedans, 16- and 17-series numbers were reserved for vans, 20 through 23 for coupés, and 26 through 29 for wagons. The only exception to this scheme is the 18R-U–engined RX15, introduced in June 1976, which received the same chassis code whether fitted in the hardtop or the sedan.
