TORONTO, Ont. — The Canadian International AutoShow’s annual Media Preview Day featured 31 vehicles making their debut, building the event’s reputation as Canada’s pre-eminent destination to get a first glimpse at the cars, trucks and SUVs that will be gracing showroom floors in the coming months and years — and the concepts that will inspire the designs and technology of tomorrow.

This list of premiere vehicles included formal presentations unveiling the 2025 Porsche Taycan and 2024 Porsche Panamera — as well as a first-look at the Porsche Vision Gran Turismo concept — the Volvo EX90, INFINITI Qe concept and QX Monogram concept, 2025 Genesis GV80 Coupe and 2025 Kia Carnival, as well as presentations for the VinFast VF 3 and VF Wild pickup truck, and the super cars and hyper cars of Grand Touring Automobiles, Canada’s premier retailer of luxury automobiles which is celebrating 50 years in business.

“We take pride at the Canadian International AutoShow to bring consumers interesting and unique vehicles alongside a showcase of the newest and latest production models that will be in the market in the coming years,” says Jason Campbell, General Manager of the AutoShow. “We have had a very successful Media Preview Day, setting the stage for car enthusiasts, car shoppers and families to spend the next 10 days exploring the automotive world right here in Toronto.”

Media Preview Day launched on Thursday with a special opening presentation and the Canadian Car of the Year Awards, presented by AJAC. Mate Rimac, CEO of Bugatti Rimac, and Paul Cummings, the CEO of Toronto luxury car dealer Grand Touring Automobiles, opened Media Preview Day with a panel discussion and the presentation of the Rimac Nevera, billed as the quickest car in the world. The Nevera — which will be showcased in the Grand Touring Automobiles exhibit on the 700 level of the South Building in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre — pulled up the stage driven by renowned automotive journalist, television and social media star Richard Hammond, who joined the crew on stage for the official opening.

In the Canadian Car of the Year Awards, AJAC writers voted for the 2024 Toyota Prius as Canadian Car of the Year, and the Toyota Grand Highlander was named Canadian Utility of the Year. In newly minted categories for electric vehicles, Genesis swept the field, taking the Canadian Electric Car of the Year with its GV70 and the Canadian Electric Utility of the Year with its Electrified G80.
