At this point there are no plans for a demo. Don't know if that's in the cards later.
You could consider TM Nations Forever a "demo" for everything a contemporary TrackMania game offers (solo/multiplayer racing, track editor, replays, mediatracker, game modes, custom cars, skins and avatars, and more), just not the actual driving experience of TM2C. As with all previous seven environments, Canyon has its own distinct feel, so don't make the mistake others already made of expecting Stadium 2, but once you get used to it, it's cool in its own right. Still, tastes differ, so there's no telling whether or not it'll cater to yours. You could read up on the MP forums to get more informed about what's on offer.
