If you’re hoping to get the most out of the remainder of this warm summer weather, have you considered heading out on the water? The Toronto Harbour is a great place to kick back and relax on a boat or a variety of other watercraft.
There’s no harm in being overly prepared when you’re heading out on the water. Some things you might want to bring with you include a compass, a paddle (in case the engine fails), a watertight flashlight, navigation lights, a sound signaling device, and personal flotation devices for all on board.
What to do?
Of course, you can rent a boat, jet skis, canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, and more if you want to have some fun. But if you want to take some of the responsibility out of your adventures on the water, consider taking a dining cruise that offers brunch or take a ferry to Toronto Islands for amusement park fun and shopping.
Our team at INFINITI Downtown loves being so close to the water! Let us know how you plan on enjoying the warm weather the next time you visit us.

To create an SUV that can adapt to the demands of a career, family life, and recreation, INFINITI called upon a team of skilled female designers and engineers to bring the 2022 QX60 to life. To document their hard work and talent, INFINITI created a four-part short film series, “The Voices of QX60: Meet the Women Who Powered the All-New QX60.”
In this series, the leading ladies of the QX60 design team discuss how their personal experiences helped them create the sophisticated luxury SUV. INFINITI Color Designer Sayuri Nakashima drew upon her Japanese heritage to craft the QX60’s Zen-like interior design and serene color choices. When working on creating a vehicle that’s suited to both a career and family life, Trisha Jung considered her busy lifestyle as the Director for Pricing and Incentives and Model Line Management.
Durability Test Engineer Heather Kniep utilized her passion for cars and her expert engineering skills to refine the QX60’s new all-wheel-drive technology. Senior Design Manager Michelle Christensen led the project by finding inspiration in the innovative QX60 Monograph concept.
Now that winter has passed and spring is upon us, it is a great time to check up on your INFINITI. Here are some spring service tips to consider as you schedule routine maintenance for your vehicle.
Do a walk-around
The first thing to do is check the external components of your vehicle, including the tires, wiper blades, headlights, and brake lights. If anything looks damaged, have that item repaired or replaced.
Your INFINITI needs a variety of fluids to work properly. An oil change will clean up the engine parts and ensure that your vehicle is running efficiently. You can also bring your car to our team at INFINITI Downtown to check the wiper fluid and brake fluid.
With slippery roads causing us to brake quicker and more often, now is a good time to check on the brake pads. If you notice that it’s harder to stop or if you hear a squeaking sound, it might be time to replace the brake pads.
Give it a wash
Get rid of all of that winter grime by taking your INFINITI through a car wash. Be sure to choose an option with an underbody wash to remove all of the salt from the roadways.
For any service needs for your vehicle, contact our team or visit us at INFINITI Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.
Even as luxurious and advanced as the QX50 is, INFINITI was able to find ways to improve upon the luxury SUV with new standard features. From advanced technology updates to more premium materials from front to back, it doesn’t get much better than the 2022 INFINITI QX50.
For 2022, the QX50 is equipped with an exciting suite of features. To start, all models now come with wireless Apple CarPlay® compatibility and ProPILOT™ Assist technology. But the innovative inclusions don’t stop there. All grades also come with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, LED welcome lights on the rear door handles, USB-C chargers for rear passengers, and rear door-activated Intelligent Key entry.
Inside, the elegance of the QX50 is elevated by contrast-colour stitching and piping for the seats as well as convenient amenities like dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, and a Wi-Fi® hotspot for up to seven devices.
Power is also standard, thanks to the 2.0-litre VC-Turbo engine that delivers 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. That engine is paired to an XTRONIC® CVT with Downshift Rev Matching and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. When combined with the QX50’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, you have ultimate control behind the wheel.
The stylish and turbocharged 2022 INFINITI Q60 is here, and it’s better than ever before. With new tech upgrades, an award-winning turbo engine, and a head-turning exterior, it’s easy to see why so many are choosing the new INFINITI Q60 — available at INFINITI Downtown.
Under the hood of the new Q60 is a VR-series 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine that generates a thrilling 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque when paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode. For even more performance, opt for the Q60 RED SPORT I-LINE that increases output to 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.
One of the new tech features for the 2022 Q60 is the inclusion of standard wireless Apple CarPlay® compatibility, making it even more convenient to use your favourite apps on the go. Every model is also equipped with a high-resolution INFINITI InTouch dual touch-screen display and INFINITI InTouch Services telematics that comes with a convenient Wi-Fi hotspot.
Available in eight colours, like Grand Blue and Dynamic Sunstone Red, you’ll catch the attention of everyone in the 2022 INFINITI Q60 coupe. The standard 19-inch wheels create a dominating stance, but you can go even bigger on the Q60 RED SPORT I-LINE and its exclusive 20-inch aluminum-alloy sport wheels. In the back are dual exhaust tips with chrome or brushed satin finishers.
If you drive a 2020-21 INFINITI vehicle, you may be eligible for a complimentary upgrade to Wireless Apple CarPlay®. Select models from the previous two model years can receive the free update by scheduling an appointment at INFINITI Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.
