Toronto Auto Show Pictures And Video

The Toronto auto show, or Canadian International Auto show, has been the largest event of its kind across Canada for several years. It is particularly appreciated for the impressive number of the cars from the past, present and future, and for showcasing concept vehicles.

This is an excellent starting point if you are shopping for a new car or truck. Every year, the auto show presents dozens of new or redesigned models.

This is also a great opportunity to get inside the cars, evaluate their comfort level, and to compare models, if you are unsure of what exactly you are looking for.

In 2012, the show featured over 1000 cars, SUVs, sports cars and vans, as well as a number of hybrid and fully electric cars and a few vintage cars.

You can find below video and pictures from the 2012 show, made by Kate Kraverska.
