Not to be confused with Toyota Cressida.

The Toyota Cresta was an rear wheel drive 4-door hardtop made by Toyota launched in 1980 that shared a chassis with the Mark II/ Cressida and the Chaser. The goal of the Cresta was a higher level of luxury in comparison to the Mark II, and the Chaser was the performance oriented version of the Mark II. Often available with two-tone paint and more interior convenience options, with the result ending up being more similar to the Cressida sold in export markets. The Cresta was produced for five generations, ended production in 2000, when it was merged with the Chaser to form the short lived Verossa, a sporty luxury car.

Used Toyota Cresta


The first Cresta was introduced April 1980 and was available exclusively at Toyota Vista sales channels across Japan. The Cresta was positioned as a high-level luxury sedan just below the established, traditional luxury sedan, the Crown. The Cresta was introduced with halogen headlights to provide a more upscale appearance, and was available with a full range of luxury amenities and conveniences. The SOHC 2.0 L M-EU engine was used with an automatic transmission only, which was shared with the Crown, as well as the 2.0L 1G-EU straight six engine, also used in the Crown. Trim levels used names meant to suggest luxury overtones, such as Super Lucent, Super Touring, Super Deluxe, Super Custom, and Custom, names that were similarly used on the Crown. Upper level trim levels used two-tone paint schemes to further the Cresta's elevated status towards a younger demographic. The Nissan competitor was the Laurel.

Power side view mirrors were now installed western style at the leading edge of the front doors instead of on the front fenders above the front wheels to provide a more modern appearance, and retracted electrically for confined parking spaces.
