2017 TORONTO INTERNATIONAL CAR SHOW

The Toronto Section met on February 23rd for a private viewing of the new models arriving for 2017. Arden Nerling of Mercedes-Benz Canada was our host for the evening and shared with us information on the organization and layout of the displays for this year’s show which included specialty designed extruded lighted aluminum bars that formed the backdrop of the Mercedes-Benz display which was used last year as well. 

Arden also explained how this new display custom built for Toronto was disassembled and re assembled from last year.  Mercedes-Benz Canada had new models on display some of them being specially sent from Germany for this show. 

A new C Class convertible was introduced and the S class convertible was also on display along with a beautiful red  E class station wagon.

On display was the four wheel drive Sprinter class that was built in Germany. Mercedes-Benz Canada showed some rolling workshops for the Sprinter and Metrus class as well that are very popular with construction and delivery companies.

The new S Class cabriolet was also on display that featured a beautiful exterior that highlighted the new design features of the S Class models. 

There was as well as a display of the AMG vehicles which are very popular including a shimmering  green  AMG GT coupe and  a red convertible

For those that enjoy off roading in luxury, a yellow AMG G Wagen with Unimog under pinnings was on display for those that wanted to have something different in a truck. At a price tag of $328,000 and completely sold out, our members can only dream of having one

The accessories booth had items at a 20% discount from the normal retail prices which members took advantage. Members were given a 360 degree VR  experience  through a You Tube video that can be accessed through your phone Mercedes  posters were given out featuring the new models. Members received a $5 rebate on their admission to the show

The tour ended with a private visit to the Mercedes-Benz lounge for refreshments and cookies where you had to show your Mercedes-Benz key fob to gain entrance. Peter Spitzer spoke to the members about the upcoming Performance driving events and Harald von Langsdorff spoke about the need for assistance in organizing club events and asked for volunteers to take up board positions. In order to provide the membership with events and activities, additional volunteers are needed.

We look forward to the Tech session in April at the Mercedes-Benz Training Center at the airport to learn more about the new models and technical features.
