Fun Boating Adventures in Toronto

Fun Boating Adventures in Toronto, ON

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.

Know the rules

Before getting out on the water, it’s best to acclimate yourself with the harbour’s guidelines. This will keep you and others safe. Not only that, but you may learn something about boating that you never knew before.

Be prepared

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.

Videos Spotlight Women Who Brought the New INFINITI QX60 to Life

2022 INFINITI QX60 | Toronto, ON

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.

You can watch “The Voices of QX60” on the official INFINITI YouTube channel and on the brand’s various social channels. Come see what these designers and engineers created by test-driving the 2022 INFINITI QX60 at INFINITI Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.

Spring Service Tips for Your INFINITI

Spring Service Tips for Your INFINITI | Toronto, ON

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.

Fluid fill-up

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.

Brake check

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.
