Top New Vehicles to See at the 2023 Canadian International Auto Show

The 2023 Canadian International Auto Show promises big things with plenty to see

  • The CIAS is the biggest new car show in Canada.

  • The event is once more being held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

  • Public dates run from February 17th to the 26th.

We have to be excited about the 2023 edition of the big Canadian International Auto Show. So much has gone into making this event happen even though the current auto-show format looks to be running out of steam. As always, if you’re going to visit one major auto show in Canada, the CIAS in Toronto is definitely the one to aim for.


As with last January’s Montreal auto show, a significant number of automakers will not be present. And again, this will give other car companies the opportunity to shine. Furthermore, the CIAS will host plenty of special displays including the Cobble Beach Classics Presents 75 Years of Porsche, Pfaff, and Grand Touring Automobiles will have loads of new and old bling to show off, the LEGO Group will be out in force, and we’ll get to see the all-Canadian Project Arrow.

The 2023 Canadian International Auto Show opens its doors to the public on Friday, February 17th at noon. While there, make sure you check out the following vehicles:

The Dodge Hornet is an American clone of the Alfa Romeo Tonale that differs only in terms of style and features. The Hornet, therefore, shares the same gasoline and PHEV powertrains as the Tonale.
