I introduced you to the really cool Towards Tomorrow Event by Toyota going on at Square One in Mississauga back in March. Well they have added a new feature to the event that you don’t want to miss! On Saturday’s in April and May, Toyota’s city savvy vehicles will be available to test drive at the Towards Tomorrow event. I’ve mentioned before that there are no salespeople present, or dealerships represented, at this event. Just really helpful CSRs there to answer all your questions and tell you about the vehicles. They have a huge assortment of Toyota’s available to test drive in the parking lot of the Square One mall in Mississauga. You have the option of taking the car for a drive just in the parking lot, or you can take the vehicle out for a more comprehensive test-drive offsite as well.
With no pressure, and everything so conveniently at your disposal, who wouldn’t want to take a new car for spin?
Its just such a stress free and easy way to experience some incredible new vehicles. I don’t know about you, but I can feel very anxious in the presence of salespeople. I know they are only doing their jobs, and there’s no reason to feel awkward, but I can’t help it. I do. This whole Toyota Towards Tomorrow setup made me fill so at ease, and I really enjoyed the experience of driving and checking out these new vehicles. The rep who came on the drive with me was so sweet and I felt so comfortable asking her as many questions as I wanted and she pointed out some really great features that I never would have ever thought to ask about.
I decided to test drive the Toyota Prius because I’ve been curious about that vehicle for a long time. I was so impressed with it. I didn’t want to start yearning for a new car but I can’t help it. There are so many cool new features available now that didn’t even exist the last time I purchased a new vehicle.
Push button start and parking break, touch screen displays, funky gear “shifter”, and so many more cool features that had the techie in me so excited. The Prius I test drove had an upgrade package that including things like a pre-collision system (alert if another vehicle is getting too close), Lane Departure Alert (alerts you if you are traveling over the lines on the road), automatic high beams (YES!), and so much more. The Blue Crush Metallic colour, smooth and so crazy quiet ride, and amazing features have me totally crushing on this 2016 Toyota Prius!
I also checked out the 2016 Scion iM while I was there because I’ve been so curious about these cars.
The Towards Tomorrow by Toyota Event is going on from March 5 – May 31, 2016 at the Square One Shopping Centre (100 City Centre Dr, Mississauga, ON L5B 2C9). The Towards Tomorrow Brand Gallery is located in the old Target space on the 2nd floor near Rathburn and Duke of York. Visit my original post for more details or learn more here.
