The Mark II Blit was released in January 2002 as a successor to the Mark II wagon Qualis. While the Qualis was based on the front-engine, front-wheel-drive platform of the Camry Gracia, the Blit reverted to the front-engine, rear-wheel-drive (FR) layout by adopting the platform of the ninth-generation Mark II sedan (released in October 2000).

The Blit station wagon could accommodate five people, and its body was 40 mm longer than that of the sedan. It shared the four 6-cylinder engines with the Mark II sedan. The drivetrain layout was either FR or electronically controlled full-time 4-wheel-drive (i-Four), and the transmission was a 4-speed ECT-i or a 5-speed Super ECT. The suspension employed a 4-wheel double wishbone arrangement, with self-leveling shock absorbers for the rear.

Production of the Blit was discontinued in June 2007.

The various meanings of "Mark" are the same as in English (target, grade, fame). "Corona Mark II" can be taken to mean that the car is both "the second-generation model" and "an upgraded version" of the Corona."Blit" comes from "Blitz," which means "lightning" in German.
