The seventh-generation Mark II released in October 1992 only consisted of 4-door hardtops. As both the body length and width exceeded the limits for the small car category, the new Mark II was classified as a "3 number" vehicle. The new models were divided into the sporty Tourer line and the luxurious Grande line. The two were differentiated not only with internal and external designs, but also by the way the suspensions and steering were tuned.

The lineup of engines mounted in a rear-wheel-drive configuration included 1.8-liter 120 PS to 3-liter 220 PS gasoline units, with the largest output (280 PS) produced by a 2.5-liter twin-turbo unit. A 2.4-liter 97 PS 4-cylinder turbo diesel unit was also available. In addition to the 4-wheel double wishbone suspension, such advanced technologies as the TEMS electronic suspension, 4-wheel anti-lock braking system (ABS), and the torque-sensing limited slip differential (Torsen LSD) were employed. In October 1993, an electronically controlled full-time 4-wheel-drive version was added to the 2.5-liter engine model.

As for the sedan, the sixth-generation model remained in production until it was discontinued in December 1995 when the Comfort was released. The Comfort was a model developed for taxi services and driving schools, using the platform of the sixth-generation Mark II sedan as its base.

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.
