I’ve been going to the CIAS since the mid 90s and I’ve loved attending each and every time. It’s fun, it’s exciting, and it’s fascinating to see cars from the past, present, and from the future (potentially).  The Canadian International AutoShow is both the largest car expo, and the largest consumer show in Canada.  There are more than 1,000 cars, trucks, SUVs, concept cars, exotics, classics, muscle cars, fully electric cars … certainly enough to tickle anyone’s fancy.

Media Preview Day was on February 14th and I was thrilled to be a part of it.  The auto show has been around for 44 years; which means they’ve had time to perfect their head-turning, jaw-dropping exhibits.  I must have shared at least 50 pictures on social media, and several  live videos (using the above-mentioned hashtags) so you shouldn’t have any problems finding them.  I certainly was excited to share everything with you but if you’re in the Toronto GTA, I highly recommend visiting the CIAS.  You might need to allocate an entire day to allow yourself sufficient time to drool and linger.  The CIAS features cars worth millions of dollars.  For example:

  • A Bugatti Chiron, which has a base price that starts at nearly $3.4 million
  • A General Motors Le Sabre concept car valued at more than $15 million (US)
  • A Pagani Huayra worth an estimated $2.5 million

Put an end to your curiosity; you know you want to.  Take the entire family … oh,  look at the calendar, Family Day is the perfect day and it’ll be here on Monday!

FYI:
The 2017 Canadian International AutoShow is helping celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday by showcasing Canadian collectors in each feature of the show.

While visiting the Canadian International Auto Show, it was announced that the 2017 Continental is making its Canadian debut in Toronto this week.  Kemal Curic, and his entire team, worked hard to design the Lincoln Continental … quiet luxury at its finest.

Driver Assist … for you to stay in control:

-Available lane-keeping system alerts the driver if the vehicle is drifting from the driving lane, and actively applies steering torque to help direct the vehicle back into the lane.

-Available 360-degree camera helps make maneuvering in tight places easy, as the center display provides a seamless overhead view of the vehicle generated from four cameras mounted at the front, rear and under the sideview mirrors.

Luxurious Power that’s Effortless:

The all-new Lincoln-exclusive 3.0-liter V6 engine with twin turbochargers that produces a projected 400 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque is designed for smooth, responsive, yet quiet power. Continental’s available all-wheel-drive system is paired with Dynamic Torque Vectoring that transfers torque on demand to the appropriate rear wheel when driving through corners – providing confident handling and stability. Auto Hold keeps the vehicle at a complete stop without having to hold your foot on the brake; this helps make driving a bit easier in heavy stop-and-go traffic.

The available Perfect Position Seat in the Continental is refreshingly customizable. With 30 ways of movement, including independent thigh extenders, you can easily adjust this seat to your own uniquely comfortable position—as if you needed any more reasons to never get out.

This future vehicle is power, luxury, and sleek perfection that you’re certain to revel in. The full-size sedan is designed to appeal to culturally progressive clients who define luxury on their own terms – craving superior quality, craftsmanship and safety.
