A good Toronto car rental has two things, versatility and affordability, Advantage is proud to offer both.

The Ford Escape

How could we make a list of the best weekend car rentals and not talk about the Ford Escape? We have said before that the Escape is the ultimate weekend rental, with ample seating and plenty of room in the trunk for all your long weekend necessities. Escapes are incredibly popular vehicles and can be seen all over Toronto and even more as you head out of the city. They are perfect for families or anyone with an active lifestyle. The commercials showing smiling 20-somethings heading to the beach driving down open highways could not be a truer depiction of what it is like to drive an2017-Ford-Escape Escape.  

Driving the Escape is an experience in and of itself, even though it is an SUV it handles like a car with sharp turning and quick accelerations. Finding parking for the Escape is a breeze as its compact size is perfect for both Toronto’s tight parking and the gloriously large parking spots outside of the city.

Where To Go With The Ford Escape

The Escape is perfect for a group of friends who are looking to escape Toronto and the GTA for the weekend. Five adults can comfortably fit in the car and the hatched trunk offers optimal space for everything you need for a weekend getaway. Picture you and your friends driving to a cabin, tunes flowing through the SYNC media system straight from your phone and the Toronto skyline growing smaller in your rearview mirror. If that doesn’t sound like an incredible weekend, we don’t know what does.

This is a minivan unlike any other, the Toyota Sienna is a beautiful looking minivan with an extra seat more than Advantage Toronto Toyota Sienna 8 Passengerother traditional minivans.
