The new Honda Freed
Discover the latest 2020/2021 Honda Freed Singapore Models.
Our Honda Freed Singapore parallel-imported (PI) collection consists of brand new arrivals that are now available in Singapore – VAC-Ready.
Purchase with peace of mind from one of the most established and largest readily-stocked premier Honda Freed dealers in Singapore today. Established in 1989, with over 200+ 5-Star reviews on Facebook and Google.
Sporting a completely redesigned exterior and futuristic styling, the new Honda Freed rolls in, offering a versatile cargo and seating configuration.
A DOHC i-VTEC In-line 4-cylinder engine propels this mini MPV that generates a 29hp and a maximum torque of 160Nm through a seven-speed automatic gearbox transmission. It advances with the latest i-VTEC technology, which significantly reduces fuel consumption and improves overall fuel economy.
The spacious cabin is the selling point of the latest MPV. Now in its second-generation, the latest Honda Freed can accommodate seven occupants, making it the perfect utility MPV for every adventure you take.
Honda Freed Special Features
The new Honda Freed comes equipped with intelligent safety technology to ensure that you are covered every mile from every angle.
The Honda SENSING consists of nine safety features that aim to have a collision-free road between motorcycle riders and automobile occupants.
Some of the many Honda SENSING features are Collision mitigation brake (CMBS), Adaptive cruise control (ACC), and Lane-keeping support system (LKAS).
A multi-information display is a brand-new innovation incorporated today on many of Honda's latest vehicles.
A much smaller screen monitor is located in the middle of the driver's seat and lies right on the instrument panel.
Drivers can instantly cycle through various required data, such as average fuel economy, range, elapsed time, average speed, a blank screen, vehicle settings, and even engine oil life, with the steering wheel’s control buttons.
Daytime Running Lights LED
With the LED Headlights extending upwards, the front of the Honda Freed appeared robust, strong, and bold.
These headlights are also functional in addition to aesthetics, as they are a daytime running light that helps improve the visibility of your car on the road, even in broad daylight.
They make your vehicle more noticeable, especially during unprecedented adverse weather conditions, thus increasing road safety. When you start the engine, this function triggers automotive lighting automatically.
Smart Key System
A new technology feature that makes it possible to lock and unlock your vehicle without holding a key or a key fob in your hand.
The Smart Entry System perfectly works as long as the key fob is within 32 inches of the vehicle’s proximity, while the power switch allows you to activate and shut off your engine with just a press of a button.
Electric Power Steering
First introduced by Honda, this technology aims to provide a smoother ride anywhere you go, equipped with a sensor that detects the rate of motion and direction of the heart.
While it helps to maneuver through rough roads, rocks, and washes, it also trails a lot easier and avoids turning an unnecessary skid by adding resistance to the steering wheel.
The Ecological Drive Assist System (Eco Assist™) coaches you to develop and maintain a fuel-efficient driving style.
This Honda-specific feature changes certain configurations on your car’s operations to help it perform more efficiently, like slowing down the throttle response based on the rate that your vehicle increases in speed to save fuel consumption.
Honda Freed Interior
Flip-up and Tumble Seats
Offering seven seats with three rows of seating as standard, the Honda Freed features the largest cabin in the compact minivan segment.
With its 60:40 split tumble seat with a center armrest and the third row of 50:50 flip-up seats, you can easily configure the cargo arrangement to accommodate passenger seating and bulky pieces of luggage.
Woodgrain Instrument Cluster
Showcasing a stylish interior, Honda Freed welcomes you with a full-digital instrument cluster, a touch screen entertainment system, and a column-mounted gear lever on a wood-grain finish dashboard.
The woodgrain (walnut) instrument cluster secures the sporty yet elegant look of Honda Freed’s cabin.
Anti-glare Rearview Mirror
A basic necessity for Honda models, the automatic-dimming rearview mirror checks the light level on the mirror and automatically dims.
The anti-glare feature prevents too much light from distracting the driver, and it also reduces fatigue, especially during a night drive.
A practical safety measure, this feature operates only when the ignition is on, and the driver has full control over all windows.
The power lock button must be switched off from the river’s side before anyone can open or close the windows. More than just an aesthetic component, this function provides safety and convenience, especially with children on board.
Sun Visor with Vanity Mirror
A standard for Honda Freed, the sun visor for both the driver and front passenger, protects you from the glare of sunlight.
The sun visors can easily be adjusted based on your preference. It also features a vanity mirror for increased convenience in fixing your look before leaving the car.
Full-auto Air Conditioner
Honda Freed ensures that every journey you take is as comfortable as possible.
With the full-auto air conditioner feature, you can conveniently set your preferred temperature for the whole cabin. The silver-painted air conditioner outlet knob also complements the stylish interior of the mini MPV.
Exterior of the Honda Freed
15” Steel Wheel with Wheel Cap
Aside from completing the Honda Freed’s stylish character, the 15-inch steel wheel also features a wheel cap that acts as smart protection from rusting and damage of the bearings due to random impact with road debris.
With various styles for the wheel cap’s appearance, it also serves as an additional aesthetic feature of the Honda Freed.
Ventilated Disc Brakes
Securing a safer driving experience and better driver confidence, this feature maximizes Honda Freed’s brake performance.
Offering improved ventilation, the radial fins cast into the disc between the outer and inner surfaces allow the disc brakes to dissipate heat better during a brake.
Remote-controlled Door Mirror
This feature allows you to tilt, fold, and unfold the side mirrors without leaving your seat. Using a remote control switch when the ignition is ON, you can conveniently adjust the mirrors based on your desired preference.
The side mirrors also come with LED signal lights that aid safer navigation at all times.
Intermittent Front Wiper
The vehicle-speed dependent feature of the intermittent front wiper ensures driving comfort in any weather condition.
Equipped with a high-torque wiper motor for improved kinetic performance and different speed level options, these innovative front wipers function without distracting the driver. With the mist function ON, it quickly wipes away raindrops at high speed.
Honda Freed’s Sliding door feature is powered on both sides by a convenient door handle and a touch sensor, allowing you to quickly and safely get in and out of the vehicle.
It slides on both sides of the car, meaning you can open and close the door from inside the vehicle as well as outside. It also has a pinch protection feature designed to avoid pinching between the rear edge of the side opening and the sliding door.
LED Rear Combination Lamps
Ensuring improved safety in driving, the LED stop lamp and tail lamp provide better and higher visibility to cars, especially at night.
LED lamps illuminate faster than traditional incandescent lights, helping the driver right behind you to respond quickly to your signals. These rear lamps also complete the stylish exterior of the Honda Freed.

Honda Freed Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers regarding purchasing a new Honda Freed from us.
What is VAC-Ready?
VAC stands for ‘Vitas Approval Code. ‘ It is a document 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 than 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 customer savings. We can also provide and tailor flexible financing plans, services, and value-added options to owners while making sure we can provide competent technical support for our customer’s cars.
Unlike Authorised Dealers, we are a lot more flexible in our approach 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 every time.
What Honda Freed 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 Freed 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 every month 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 seven 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 before 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 Freed from overseas for me?
Yes, we can. We can import in a used Honda Freed as long it is up to a maximum of 3 years old.
There are some regulations regarding importing used vehicles, primarily considering that there are shipping and customs costs – including a S$10,000 surcharge (by customs).
There is also a 20% excise duty for passenger and vintage cars, which is levied on the vehicle’s cost. 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 about the car 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 about this service.
Can I pre-order a Honda Freed 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 Freed for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have Honda Freed 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 can utilize for Grab Car Rental usage.
Can I rent a Honda Freed 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 Freed under my name (or company)?
Yes, we can. You can lease your next Honda Freed with use under your name or Corporate/company entity. Our Car Leasing programs are for at a minimum of 12 months. Most car leases taken up by our clientele are between 12-36 months.
For Car Leasing requirements, please read more on our Car Leasing page.
What should I do if there is a problem (technical issue / global recall issue) with my car within the warranty period?
Just bring your Honda Freed 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 Freed.

Can I trade in my Honda Freed to VINCAR?
Sure, you can. We can provide a competitive trade-in value for your car. Just contact us and provide the necessary details.
Our team will be able to provide you with more details and information within a day.
What accessories will come with my Honda Freed?
Upholstery, fittings, and accessories can differ from model to model. We advise that you ask your relationship manager about the available options and accessories that come with your purchase. All items will be indicated clearly in your sales agreement.
Can you provide a 100% loan for your Honda Freed?
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 Freed?
No. The maximum loan tenure is seven 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 standard 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, and 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 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.
Unfortunately, this practice 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 just to 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 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 specific 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 100,000km mileage warranty – whichever comes first. Your vehicle’s warranty can be extended to 10 years.
Please check with the sales agreement to see all terms and conditions regarding warranty and service details. All vehicles are serviced in-house at our dedicated car servicing center 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.
