The 2017 edition of the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto is nearly upon us, and considering it's Canada's biggest car show, the lineup boasts some serious star power. T.O. will be home to a global premiere, $100 million worth of exotic cars, more than a dozen concept cars, and a whole lot more when the show comes to town from February 17 - 26.

Hyundai recently announced it will be showing its next-generation Accent subcompact for the first time in Toronto. This is the first ever global premiere to come to the CIAS.

As much as Canadians love their small and inexpensive small cars, there's something on the opposite end of the automotive spectrum coming to Toronto. Aston Martin will be bringing its stunning AM-RB 001 hypercar concept to Ontario's capital, which will be the first time the car will be appearing at an auto show anywhere in the world.

Toronto hosts global premiere, 16 concepts as auto show lands this week

Motor1 Canada will have plenty more coverage beyond that. We'll be on the show floor during media day on February 16, writing about everything from BMW's first M-badged 7-Series, to the upcoming Honda Civic Type R and Kia Stinger.

A total of 41 vehicles will be making their Canadian premiere in Toronto, and beyond the mainstream stuff, attendees will also have the chance to view numerous electric cars at the Electric Avenue stand, as well as a rare - and extremely expensive - Bugatti Chiron at the Auto Exotica exhibit.
