The second-generation Coaster was launched in May 1982, adding high-grade EX (seating capacity: 26) and EX Saloon (seating capacity: 20) models to the lineup, as well as long body versions of existing model grades (seating capacity: 29). An automatic transmission option was also made available in October 1985. Both long and standard body models offered a choice between standard roof and high roof (i.e., 170 mm taller) versions.

To improve ride comfort, a torsion bar double wishbone front suspension was adopted. The EX model came with an air suspension system, and power steering was standard for selected models. Some models featured a sliding cabin door instead of a folding door to make boarding and exiting easier.

The available power units were a 2.4-liter 115 hp gasoline engine (22R) and two diesel engines, including a 4-liter 115 hp (2H) unit and a 3.4-liter 98 hp (3B) unit. In August 1984, the high-roofed Big Van model that was classified as a truck (seating capacity: 10, payload capacity: 1,250 kg) joined the model lineup.
