Differences Between '92 And '95 Sc400?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I'm not really up on all the details of these cars, but since participating in and reading posts on this forum, I've decided I want to get an SC400. There are two cars I am looking at - a 1992 and a 1995, both regularly serviced with very comparable mileages.

Are there any major differences (except for the front grill) between the two that I should take into consideration? :blink:

Thanks for the help,

Either vehicle is a good choice in my opinion. The main noticeable changes are the front, the tail lights, the cupholder and the fog light switch from cornering lights operation.
