LEGO, Virtual Reality and video games are drawing fansTORONTO
, Ont. — Family-friendly features are drawing the fans during the opening weekend of the 2019 Canadian International AutoShow.
Following an opening day that saw a healthy crowd come down to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the number of families with younger children were evident at the AutoShow, with kids playing video games in the Esports Zone, Driven by Castrol, families enjoying Virtual Reality demonstrations throughout the show and all jockeying for perfect position to get a picture of the life-sized LEGO® TECHNIC® model of a Bugatti Chiron, in the heart of Castrol Alley on the 700 Level of the South Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
And of course, it is the AutoShow – Canada’s largest automotive exposition — and the cars were ever-popular with tire-kickers and serious shoppers alike.
“There are few better places to begin shopping for your next new car than the Canadian International AutoShow,” says Jason Campbell, General Manager of the AutoShow. “All of the mainstream car brands that sell cars in Canada are here showcasing their latest models. It is a no-pressure environment where you can check and compare the vehicle that is best for you.”
There are family-friendly features found throughout the AutoShow. When not strapping on the VR goggles or racing around a digital track, kids are awestruck by the collection of supercars and luxury brands in the ever-popular Auto Exotica, presented by Castrol and the National Post
. Similarly, performance models of more traditional automotive brands are proving popular for shutterbugs and car enthusiasts.
The 2019 Canadian International AutoShow, presented by The Toronto Star
