TORONTO, ON., (February 15, 2013) – Visitors at this year’s Canadian International Auto Show can check out the Toyota, Lexus and Scion booths for plenty of excitement – from a chance to win through four different contests to a sneak peek of the future with three special concept cars on display.
The show runs February 15-24 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC). The Toyota, Lexus and Scion booths are located on the 800 Level of the MTCC’s South Building.
The Toyota booth will feature the Canadian debut of the Toyota Fun-Vii concept vehicle. It’s a futuristic car that demonstrates how technology and automobiles can be seamlessly integrated. The Fun-Vii has a number of imaginative features, including exterior body panels that can transform the vehicle into one big display.
Meanwhile, at the Lexus booth, attendees can see two other concept cars that are also appearing in Canada for the first time – the Lexus LF-LC, a bold new luxury sport couple, and the LF-CC, a progressive hybrid coupe inspired by the LF-LC.
While at the Lexus booth, people can enter a contest for a chance to win a new 2014 Lexus IS 250 F Sport. To enter the “Lexus All-New IS” contest, they simply need to complete a paper or electronic ballot at the booth, or go online at https://experience.lexus.ca/cgi-bin/WebObjects.exe/LTY.woa/wa/LexusISContest2English. The deadline to enter is July 3. The draw to determine a winner will be held July 14.
