Tesla Model 3 2019
Tesla Model 3 Performance: This car was a beauty in and out. This Tesla is one of the best cars out there due to various reasons. I personally chose this car for luxury and comfort, but I was completely in awe to find out that this car is one of the fastest cars out there coming with sports mode and track mode. I found everything in this car was perfect and well designed including its 15 inch screen that almost does everything... literally everything. There's Netflix, YouTube, games which comes with unlimited internet access, but only works while the car is on park. The trunk is super spacious and even the front hood had some storage space. Liked the dashboard which only opens in an option on the touch screen and the cup holder compartment was spacious and unique. Even the steering wheel adjusting is done on the 15 inch TV. The door handle will leave a lot of people confused but that's the fun part as well, also be careful not to open the door thinking it's a window button..they look very similar. This cars key will definitely leave you puzzled and it will stun you. The charging was so convenient and is free of charge, also the charging only would take 30 minutes if your times.. nothing more and it's charges super fast. This Tesla experience was ONLY possible for me because of the amazing host. Ali is one of the fewest down to earth people you will meet and will run you over through the cars instructions. Any questions or any doubts he will be happy to answer. You can't and won't find a better price for this specific car anywhere else. I would definitely go for this Tesla again and his model X. If you're looking to rent an electric car, look no further than Tesla and also look no further than to book it from Ali.

But you won't pay 40. You get what's paid for! I like Usman. I pretty much only use two people on here. Usman is one of em! I will be back! What drives me the most to book here. Is how easy pick up and drop off is! The price. And Usmans drive to make sure I'm happy

Best Toronto driving roads

Niagara Peninsula

Wind your Toronto car rental alternative along the Niagara Parkway from Lake Ontario down to Fort Erie on this scenic day trip. You’ll get a glimpse of the Horseshoe Falls and find plenty of history and lookout spots on the way.

Highway 60 or Frank McDougall Parkway

Most striking in the fall, head north in your Toronto car rental alternative from the city to catch this provincial highway that leads you through a bevy of lakes before guiding you through twisty turns in the famous Algonquin Park.

Yonge Street

While Yonge is no longer considered the world’s longest road, it’s still the best way to feel the glow and pulse of the city. Head north in your Toronto car rental alternative toward New Market for a quick trip out of town.
