Mercedes-Benz A-Class Special Features
MBUX Multimedia System
The Mercedes-Benz functionality has never been this innovative until it features the latest MBUX Multimedia System that recognizes touch controls and voice commands, taking infotainment technology to a new level.
Integrated with the widescreen display, this feature provides a live view of the navigation system and vivid information like street names and house numbers.
“Hey Mercedes” Voice Activation
It comes with tons of impressive automotive technology features, and the Advanced Voice Control is one of the most significant upgrades.
The driver gets complete control of climate functions, media, navigation, and more by just saying "Hey, Mercedes" and the use of natural speech.
With five driving modes, AMG DYNAMIC SELECT offers a more personalized driving experience. Choosing 'Slippery," Comfort," Sport," Sport+" Run,” and 'Individual' from the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs can change the vehicle’s functional properties.
This feature changes fundamental parameters such as the engine’s response and transmission, steering dynamics, damping of the suspension, and sound.
ECO Start/Stop Function
ECO Assist is a short term for ‘Ecological Drive Assist System,' which allows the driver to adopt more environmentally friendly driving habits that boost fuel efficiency.
An integrated feedback system trains the drivers to drive more effectively, while an ECO button optimizes the vehicle’s operation to maximize fuel efficiency.
Featuring fresh updates, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class comes with the AMG Bodystyling that exhibits robust aerodynamics, a large front intake, and other cool upgrades.
It includes the Mirror Package, Sports pedal, and Multifunction Steering Wheel. The chrome-spotted diamond radiator grille and the AMG-Forged Alloy Wheels are also part of the AMG Package.
Active Brake Assist
The Active Brake Assist helps the driver avoid collisions when inattentive, ensuring its safety, particularly during long journeys.
With its long-range radar and its cross-traffic feature that detects approaching vehicles and individuals, this feature offers a more peaceful drive in any condition.
Mercedes-Benz A-Class Interior
DAB Digital Radio Tuner
With the DAB Digital Radio Tuner, you can now listen to your favourite radio digital stations instead of an analogue one.
This feature offers many advantages over conventional FM, including nationwide channels, exclusive digital content, and better sound quality while on the road.
This large touchpad on the centre console allows you to easily manage the in-dash media display sub-screens with just a flicker of your fingers.
Meticulously built to understand multitouch movements like swiping through menus for the smartphone-like setup and pinching to zoom. You can utilize this to change your vehicle's general settings, such as temperature and audio volume.
Seat Comfort Package
With the Seat Comfort Package, you'll quickly find a comfortable seating position ideally suited to your individual needs.
It packs the front seats with plenty of electric and manual adjustment options that cater to the particular need of drives and front passengers in terms of body and comfort.
The Touchscreen Multimedia Display features a multitouch interface, making it easy to navigate through a wide selection of features in the MBUX, including audio, phone, and vehicle settings.
Besides touchscreen, console touchpad, and touch-control steering wheel, the other three input methods of the standard screen also respond and activate through voice command by saying, “Hey, Mercedes.”
Mercedes-Benz Sound System
A fun companion as you play your favourite song, the Burmester surround sound system comes with a high-quality speaker, a nine-channel amplifier, and 590 watts of power as standard on each of the four doors.
3-spoke Multifunction Steering Wheel
This sports steering wheel provides the driver with style and extra comfort and buttons for various control functions, with galvanized gearshift paddles in nice Nappa leather.
Without removing your hands from the wheels, almost all cockpit functions, such as audio, Bluetooth, and cruise control, can be easily and quickly monitored.
Exterior of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class
LED Tail Lamps
Compared to other taillights, LED tail lamps react quicker in case of a sudden stop, preventing accidents.
These high-performing tail lights emit more vibrant colours that are much more noticeable, helping you and other drivers safe on any road, even at night. Because it uses low power, the LED tail lamps last longer as compared with other lights.
LED High-Performance Headlamp
The LED High-Performance Headlamps provide you with a clearer view of the road ahead, ensuring your safety, particularly during long night journeys.
With its individually controlled LEDs, you can quickly and precisely adjust your car’s light for any traffic coming your way.
AMG-forged Alloy Wheels
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class features AMG-forged alloy wheels that provide improved cornering and steering response for that engaging driving experience.
These high-performing wheels complete the sporty character of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and support its powerful performance.
Rain-sensing Windshield Wipers provides you enhanced visibility on the street, allowing you to focus on the road without worrying about any distraction.
These wipers guarantee your windshield clear from drizzle and downpour and speed up depending on the rain detected.
For more convenient parking and manoeuvring, Mercedes-Benz A-Class offers its Parking Package with a reversing camera.
The multimedia screen displays a realistic view of the car’s rear through the networked rear camera, enabling you to park even in small spaces with confidence.
Diamond Radiator Grille
The radiator grille with chrome surround features two chrome louvres plus vertical bars with the high-gloss black front edge, showing off the Mercedes-Benz A-Class sporty character.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers regarding purchasing a new Mercedes-Benz A-Class 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 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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Collection?

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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class from overseas for me?
Yes, we can. We can import in a used Mercedes-Benz A-Class as long it is up to a maximum of 3 years old.

There is also a 20% excise duty for passenger and vintage cars 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.

Can I utilize a Mercedes-Benz A-Class for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have Mercedes-Benz A-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class for short-term purposes (from 1 day to 7 days etc)?
Unfortunately at this time, we do not provide short-term rental services.

What accessories will come with my Mercedes-Benz A-Class?
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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class?
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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class?
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 the ‘XXX’ company is 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 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 when 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.
