This year James and I are on the hunt to purchase a new car. Although the one we have right now works, we know that it needs a lot of repair and at this point it’s easier to buy a new one, something we both will love, than try to get ours fixed.
A few weeks ago I heard about Toyota hosting a Towards Tomorrow Event at Square One Shopping Centre, and we knew this was the perfect opportunity to begin our car search! If you’re also looking to get a new car this summer or are already a huge fan of Toyota, check it out – the event runs until May 31.
We got the chance to play with four of Toyota’s city savvy vehicles:
- 2016 Scion iM (hatchback) – cute, functional and sporty car that is well priced and has a bit of an edgy design. This was our second favourite out of them all!
- 2016 Prius c – environment friendly, fuel efficient; it’s a little smaller than your standard size, which would make it easy to park or maneuver around.
- 2016 RAV4 Hybrid – super stylish exterior and interior; great for travelling or road adventure. This was definitely one of the most popular vehicles at the activation.
- 2016 Prius – Sleek and stylish car that looks slim and long but is wide inside, allowing for passengers to sit comfortably. We definitely liked the look and feel of the Prius the most!
Outside of the cars-ploration, Toyota has set up cool interactive experiences including Virtual Reality Driving, a Digital Art Installation and a Photobooth for you to enjoy with your loved one or friends! Toyota has partnered with many local businesses across the GTA to offer guests special perks, including appetizers to a restaurant, a free yoga class with a friend, discounts on a juice cleanse and more. You can also enter for a chance to win 100,000 Aeroplan Miles, definitely worth it if you’re a collector!
In the next couple of weeks Toyota will be offering first-hand test drives with the four vehicles featured at Towards Tomorrow. I’m so excited to explore this and more over the next few weeks, as we continue our search for the new, perfect vehicle! I'll be sharing our experience here and on social media through a mini series of posts, but I encourage you to check out the activation as well! Be sure to follow along on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat (summerxskin)!
