It maybe an old gen MR2. I do not know but can be a celica as well. Do you have any pics of the front?

EDIT: It surely is not the MR2, and neither the Celica.

Infact I think that is the Cynos as Ayan has pointed out, or it maybe a 1992/94/96 Toyota Paseo.

Are you sure that its a Mark II? No offence, but Mark II's were made in the coupe style only for one generation and that did not look like this.

It's a Toyota Cynos/Paseo. Both of you are correct! It's badged 'Cynos' for the Japanese market

Preetam, Some info: the MR2 is a mid-engined car styled to look like a Ferrari (348/355). (It is in fact referred to as the poor-man's Ferrari'!) And the (2nd Gen) MR2 has intakes on its flanks in front of the rear wheel which is absent in the Paseo

EDIT: That green car is indeed a 7th Gen Toyota MK-II (X90). It was sold between '92-'96. I've seen this car around and also parked somewhere in Jayanagar. Hasn't been maintained unfortunately.

I was told it is a Mark II, it is a two-door version. So what you think this one in here is ? a four-door version of the same ?

The car in here(trivandrum) looks like this from front and rear, and is a coupe. Now someone got to tell me what it actually is ! Phew !

Edit - Preetam, i got these pics when i googled for Toyota Mark 2 only. Keep that in mind.

Dealership car.
Even if one spots a customer car it would be either in red or in white.

I heard only 2 colors are being offered.

I dont think there is any harm in taking it in red. Looks awesome and what black ?
They must definitely be offering it in black as well .
