Tomorrow night Regency Auto is celebrating the launch of the Scion brand in Canada with their “What Moves You” event.

Scion XB from Regency Auto

Beginning at 3:30pm you can stop by Regency Auto showroom on Kingsway (at 12th) for a free eco-friend car wash by Bismark, door prizes, draws, swag giveaways, gelato (from Bella Gelateria), and catering (by Cookies and Catering). A DJ will be spinning tunes to provide a festive atmosphere and then from 7:00pm until 8:00pm there will be live performances, a fashion show, and contest draws.

John has always had his eye on Scions (since they launched a few years ago in the US) and we had the chance to drive around in an XB last week. With Toyota’s engineering and it’s compact design (that doesn’t feel small at all from the inside) it was a really fun ride.

    You will want to RSVP on Facebook for the event as the winner must be at the party and present at the time of draw (between 6:00pm and 8:00pm) in order to win.

    Stop by to check out the cars, learn more about their eco-options, grab a bite to eat, and you could walk away with an iPad (for yourself or a gift for the holidays). See you tomorrow and good luck.
