The fourth-generation Mark II went on sale in October 1980, with a lineup consisting of the 4-door hardtop, 4-door sedan, and wagon models, discontinuing the 2-door hardtop.

The 4-door sedan offered elegant linear styling featuring a 6-light cabin and SAE-compliant four square headlamps. The 4-door hardtop came with a slant-nose style and non-standard-shaped 2-headlamps, with concealed center pillars that gave it the appearance of a pillarless hardtop.

The 5-engine lineup was headed by a newly developed 2-liter inline 6-cylinder SOHC unit (1G-EU), along with a 4-cylinder DOHC unit (18R-GEU) for the GT grade, 1.8- and 2-liter 4-cylinder carburetor units, and a 2.2-liter diesel unit. This was soon joined by a 6-cylinder SOHC turbocharged unit (M-TEU) and a 2.8-liter unit (5M-EU). In a minor model change in August 1982, a 6-cylinder DOHC 24-valve engine (1G-GEU) producing 160 PS/18.5 kgm was added. The new "super white" body color, made available at this time for the Mark II and its sister cars Chaser and Cresta, proved extremely popular and caused a sensation.

During this model generation, the Mark II 4-door hardtop outsold the sedan, becoming the leading model of the Mark II line.

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.
