The winners of the 2021 autoTRADER.ca Awards were recently announced, and Genesis led the way. Vehicles from this premium carmaker earned a top spot in three award categories, helping Genesis tie for the most awards received from autoTRADER.ca this year.
These awards were decided by a panel of over 20 automotive experts across Canada. They looked at every car on sale in the Canadian market right now, evaluating them on 12 criteria: value, innovation, performance, engineering excellence, user-friendliness, driving satisfaction, design, quality of materials, fuel efficiency, safety, overall excellence, and technology and on-board features.
The first Genesis model to earn recognition was the Genesis G70. This sedan earned the Best Overall Car award, making it the best option in the entire industry. The G70 also won its segment’s category, earning the title of Best Compact Luxury Car. autoTRADER.ca celebrated its powertrain options, smooth handling, and luxury features.
Genesis also received awards for the Genesis G90 and Genesis GV80 in the Best Large Luxury Car and the Best 3-Row Luxury SUV categories. Panel members were impressed by the G90’s luxurious interior, which features premium comforts like Nappa leather seating, a 22-way driver’s seat, and innovative technologies. For the GV80, the panel noted its attractive design, high-tech features, and conveniences like a massaging front chair.
At the beginning of every year, we all set New Year’s resolutions for ourselves. For 2021, why not focus these resolutions on being a better car owner? These vehicle-focused resolutions are a helpful way to help your year get off to a great start.
Stick To Your Vehicle’s Maintenance Schedule
Recommended maintenance is one of the easiest things to forget as a car owner. Your life gets busy, and before you know it, you’re a month past your scheduled oil change date. This year, set a goal to keep up with regular service appointments so your vehicle stays like new.
Discover How To Change A Tire
Changing a tire is a life skill that everyone should learn, so why not make it your New Year’s resolution? Teach yourself how to change a flat, so you don’t have to worry about being stranded on the side of the road during winter.
Learn How To Jump-Start A Car
Dead batteries are common, especially during Toronto winters when temperatures start dropping below freezing. Instead of depending on roadside assistance to get your vehicle started again, learn how to jump-start a car battery in 2021. You never know when this knowledge might come in handy.
For all your vehicle maintenance needs in 2021, get in touch with our service department here at Genesis Downtown in Toronto. Our expert technicians are ready to give your car the attention it deserves!
Throughout the fall, Toronto offers a range of events that will keep you energized and entertained. Here at Genesis Downtown, we’ve rounded up three local festivals that you should consider visiting when the leaves start to change.
Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)
Known as the biggest public film festival on the planet, TIFF offers you the chance to attend world premieres, watch cutting-edge films, and attend galas. This festival, which will take place Sept. 5-15 throughout Toronto, will give you the opportunity to expand your film horizons and catch up-and-coming Oscar hopefuls.
The Word on the Street
Perched on the shores of Lake Ontario is The Word on the Street, the world’s largest outdoor bookstore. This free festival brings together over 200 authors and more than 270 book and magazine vendors to give you the chance to not only find your next favourite book, but learn more about the writing process from well-known authors. This festival will take place Sept. 21-22 at the Harbourfront Centre.
Toronto International Festival of Authors
If you’re not all booked out by The Word on the Street, add the Toronto International Festival of Authors to your schedule. As you might expect, this festival gives you the chance to see novelists, poets, playwrights, short-story writers, and biographers discuss their craft over the course of 11 days. You can catch readings, interviews, round-table discussions, and more from Oct. 24 to Nov. 3 at the Harbourfront Centre.
