Enhanced Control and Grip
The Honda Civic incorporates a new Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel that enhances the driver’s control and grip on the steering wheel.

Exterior of the Honda Civic
Daytime Running Lights
The front of the Honda Civic is effortlessly eye-catching because of its LED headlights style extending upwards. Aside from aesthetics, these headlights are also practical since they are Daytime running lights, which help increase your car’s visibility on the road, even in broad daylight.
Especially significant during unprecedented adverse weather conditions, they make your vehicle more visible, thus increasing road safety. This feature automatically turns on car lighting as you start the engine.
Rain Sensing Auto Wipers

It switches off the high beams and engages the low beams once it detects headlights. The system automatically activates the high beams again as the headlights pass.
Centre Type R Triple Exhaust
Delivering high quality, sporty, and refined driving experience, Honda engineers the Civic with a fully functional Center Type R Triple Exhaust. An addition to Type R’s aural experience and significantly reduces cabin noise when driving at a higher speed.
Shark Fin Antenna
For a more dependable connection, Honda Civic comes with a shark fin antenna that enhances communication, navigation, and data transfer efficiency—purposely designed to withstand hazards that antennas frequently encounter, such as tree branches, adverse weather, and carwashes.
Reliable Road Visibility
As it is designed to allow drivers to see through the thick and swirling fog, the front fog light sits below the headlight for a broader light pattern.
It provides higher visibility for safer driving and is smartly equipped on the vehicle’s low sides so that it does not reflect its light by the fog and better lights up the road ahead.

Honda Civic Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers when it comes to purchasing a new Honda Civic from us.
What is VAC-Ready?
VAC stands for ‘Vitas Approval Code‘. It is a document that is issued by the Land Transport Authority that certifies that a car has passed all regulatory tests, inspections and is ready for registration to be used on Singapore’s roads. In the Parallel Importer industry, this code gives peace of mind to buyers as it ensures that the exact vehicle that buyers are purchasing has already undergone testing for approval.
This also means that the vehicle is physically available and ready in Singapore for delivery. All that’s left is to register the COE and it can be immediately used on the roads.
When you purchase from any parallel importer in Singapore, it’s important you check that they have VAC-Ready stock so it cuts down on any waiting time or uncertainty.
Some parallel importers in the past unfortunately have been unable to deliver vehicles, or in worst-case scenarios shut down and walked away with customer deposits.
We register and deliver well over a hundred new vehicles every month, and have had a 100% delivery rate for the past 30 years since 1989.
What does ‘Parallel Import’ Mean?
Parallel imported cars are vehicles shipped straight from their brand’s origin country and then sold in other countries. Parallel Importers, also known as PIs are alternate retailers and dealers of various brands of vehicles. Often Parallel Importers carry a wide selection of brands and models.
In terms of operations, there’s little difference between a parallel importer and an authorized distributor. Both entities import cars from the same countries or from where the manufacturer is located.
Vehicles from authorized distributors tend to cost more as they carry a higher overhead compared to parallel importers – these overheads include fancy showrooms, a much larger payroll, advertising and media costs, and more.
The cars themselves typically don’t differ in terms of specifications and options. Here at VINCAR, we offer vehicles directly from their origin countries at competitive prices while passing on significant savings to customers. We are also able to provide and tailor flexible financing plans, services, and value-added options to owners while making sure we are able to provide competent technical support for our customer’s cars.
Unlike Authorised Dealers, we are a lot more flexible in our approach when it comes to the type and brand of vehicle you wish to own under one brand experience.
Over 30% of new car purchases at VINCAR every year are existing customers looking to upgrade or replace their vehicles, and we are happy to provide a hassle-free seamless experience each and every time.
What Honda Civic Models do you carry?
Models not listed here may not be readily available and will require some time to be brought into the country(30-45 days). If you are keen on a vehicle that’s not listed here, just ask us – and we’ll do our best glad to make it happen.
Can you bring in a car if it’s not listed in your Honda Civic Collection?
Just ask us and we’ll do our best to see if you can import the vehicle of your preference.
We import hundreds of vehicles on a monthly basis and are familiar with all customs regulations, documentation, approvals, logistics, restrictions, and registration procedures.
When can I expect to receive my car when I order it?
The fastest we have ever registered and delivered a new vehicle is within 7 working days. This is assuming all LTA inspections, financing and insurance approvals can be processed without any delays.
The typical delivery period for most new car deliveries is within 10-14 days. If your preferred vehicle is not in Singapore yet, it may take between 30-45 days for it to arrive. Contact us, or your appointed relationship manager for more details prior to booking your next vehicle.
I need a vehicle urgently from overseas, can you speed up the process?
Sure, we provide priority air-freight shipment for some vehicles regularly for some of our clientele. This service will incur additional fees. Contact your relationship manager for more details regarding delivery estimates.
Can you import a used Honda Civic from overseas for me?
Yes, we can. We can import in a used Honda Civic as long it is up to a maximum of 3 years old.
There are some regulations with regards to importing used vehicles – primarily taking note that there are shipping and customs costs – including a S$10,000 surcharge (by customs).
For passenger and vintage cars, there is also a 20% excise duty which is levied on the cost of the vehicle. You may also need to pay compliance fees to ensure the vehicle passes LTA’s regulations. These may include tinted windows, unapproved strobes, fittings, etc.
I saw a car listed for sale on an overseas website in Japan / United Kingdom / Hong Kong etc. Can you help me import it in?
Yes, we can assist you with the purchase and import of the vehicle. We can confidently manage all customs documentation, processing, and logistic matters with regard to the vehicle being brought into Singapore. Please note a service fee will apply on top of the vehicle costs. Other fees may apply.
Contact us for a quotation with regard to this service.
Can I pre-order a Honda Civic which is not released yet?
Yes, we can. We can place your order on our priority list and purchase the first vehicle available (to your specifications) the moment it is made available.
Can I utilize a Honda Civic for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have Honda Civic for Grab Car Rentals. We recommend that you visit our Grab Car Rental Page for more information and details about the type and model of vehicle you are able to utilize for Grab Car Rental usage.
Can I rent a Honda Civic for short-term purposes (from 1 day to 7 days etc)?
Unfortunately at this time, we do not provide short-term rental services.
Can I lease a Honda Civic under my name (or company)?
Yes, we can. You can lease your next Honda Civic with use under your personal name or Corporate/company entity. Our Car Leasing programs are for a minimum of a 12-month period. Most car leases taken up by our clientele are between 12-36 months.

Just bring your Honda Civic back to us and we will be able to repair or service it at our dedicated in-house servicing centre.
We also keep parts, components, and accessories – together with an experienced team of specialized mechanics, technicians, and operation managers to deal with any major safety recalls or service campaigns from Honda.

Can you provide a 100% loan for your Honda Civic?
No. The maximum loan amount as per financing regulations set by the Monetary Authority of Singapore is 70% if the vehicle’s open market value is less than S$20,000 or 60% if the vehicle’s open market value is more than $20,000.
For more details, you can read this article “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans“.
Can you provide a 10-Year financing loan tenure for your Honda Civic?
No. The maximum loan tenure is 7 years for private passenger vehicles and up to 10 years for private hire vehicles
Other dealers and parallel importers are offering Zero-Money Down, 10-Year financing, and services for their cars. Why can’t you?
As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true – it usually is. Some dealerships, especially newer and smaller parallel importers often dangle enticing deals, discounts, and offers on social media to entice buyers to contact them.
Often such schemes lead to disappointment as the dealer may require a high down-payment amount or require the user to ‘top-up’ for COE, or quote a COE amount that is not realistically biddable.
Here’s an example. A dealer advertises a car price that is $15,000 below normal market rates. After contacting the dealer – he/she will say that the expected COE price is expected to be at X amount (which is lower than the average), and at this point, you will be pressured to leave a deposit with the dealer to secure your booking at this ‘special’ price.
When the upcoming COE exercise is completed and COE prices are nowhere near the promised rate, the dealer will ask you to top up more to register your car, else you would forfeit your booking deposit. We have seen many such examples over the years by many unscrupulous individuals and companies.
Any advertisements you see on Social Media from other dealers promising 10-Year Financing and Zero money down are also a direct violation of the Monetary Authority Of Singapore (MAS)’s regulations on “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans“.
I see similarly named car dealerships/parallel importers in Singapore, are they related to you?
VINCAR Pte Ltd operates under one single brand name, with only one other subsidiary (VINCAR Rental and Leasing Pte Ltd).
We are aware of other parallel importers who often set up Facebook Pages and advertisements with similar-sounding names and derivatives to capitalize on our brand name.
This practice, unfortunately, leads to confusion for new car buyers who get tricked into a bait-and-switch situation.
If you have previously contacted such entities, a quick way to check is to ask if ‘XXX’ company is actually named ‘XXX’. If the salesman on the line refuses to answer, dodges the question or asks you to just visit the showroom address – without providing the company’s name, do be wary.
If the showroom you have visited, does not match the original brand name which was introduced to you, take it as a big red flag. If these companies are willing to mislead you just to visit them with a different name, they are likely not going to be trustworthy with other affairs.
Can I test-drive a car before I commit?
For certain models and subject to vehicle availability, we may allow test drives. Please check with your relationship manager or contact us first.
What kind of warranty do I get?
All new vehicles sold by VINCAR by default comes with a 5-year or 130,000km mileage warranty – whichever comes first. Your vehicle’s warranty can be extended to 10 years, fully underwritten by III.
Please check with the sales agreement to see all terms and conditions with regards to warranty and service details. All vehicles are serviced in-house at our dedicated car servicing centre located at 24 Leng Kee Road.
Does the warranty cover maintenance?
Typically, vehicle warranties do not cover maintenance fees as they are considered as two separate items. However, during our promotional periods, we may include complimentary service packages.
Check with our sales department for more information regarding active promotions or packages.
Can I purchase an extended warranty from VINCAR?
Yes, subject to terms and conditions. Do check in with our sales team to see what active extended warranty packages we have at the moment that we can assist you with.
Can you deliver the vehicle directly to my home or office address after purchase?
Yes we can. Contact your sales representative for more details.
Where are your showrooms located?
We have showrooms in 3 locations across Singapore. Two of them are in the Leng Kee Location, 1 in the East (Ubi).
Our Flagship showroom is located at 24 Leng Kee Road, 159096.
Our Pre-Owned showroom is at 237 Alexandra Rd, The Alexcier, Singapore 159929.
