Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Special Features
4MATIC Permanent Four-wheel Drive
Enjoy any adventure actively and comfortably with the 4MATIC permanent four-wheel-drive system.
This feature enhances your driving experience when accelerating, cornering at speed, driving on and off-road, or even when starting.
It is also a continuously active system which ensures driving stability and optimum traction under any road conditions.
Enter and exit your GLC-Class without hassle thanks to the KEYLESS-GO system, which features a SmartKey that allows you to unlock, start, and drive without taking out your keys.
Quickly lock and open your car by simply touching the door handle or step on the brake pedal and press the Start/Stop button to start the engine right away.
Keeping up with the latest Mercedes-Benz technology, the GLC-Class comes with a 5.5-inch TFT multi-function display and a 10.25-inch media display upfront.
The latter bears an intuitive MBUX interface, which allows control over several features a lot easier. While the previous has a high-resolution instrument cluster which displays essential vehicle information with a relaxed illumination.
Park and manoeuvre smoothly with the Active Parking Assist feature integrated on GLC-Class model variants. It comes with the PARKTRONIC system, which increases convenience in parallel parking on narrow or big spaces.
It uses bumper sensors and cameras to monitor and visually display the SUV’s distance and range from obstacles.
“Hey Mercedes” Voice Activation
One of the MBUX system highlights is the voice activation feature that allows you to control several infotainment functions, such as music selection, phone calls, destination input, weather forecast and more.
By simply saying “Hey Mercedes” you get to enjoy a more comfortable, intelligent, and luxurious fun ride.
Sleek AMG Wheels
Offering a more comprehensive range of performance, you can opt for 19”/20” AMG alloy wheels to increase road grip and athleticism on your GLC-Class.
And while it is underpinned with a true Mercedes-Benz quality, its 5-twin-spoke design brings a sleek and elegant stance to the compact crossover.
Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Interior
Sports Steering Wheel
The 3-spoke steering wheel has a touch-sensitive interface, covered in black Nappa leather with black topstitching, flattened bottom section, heavily embossed in the grip area.
Integral touch control buttons allow you to control different car functions and the media display, creating a comfortable diving experience and less distraction while on the road.
Indulge in exceptionally supple yet supportive front seats with their electric adjustment setting, including the backrest, height and seat cushion inclination.
It also provides convenient features like the heater, four-way electric lumbar support, and manual seat cushion depth adjustment.
Automatic Climate Control
Increase your luxurious comfort inside the cabin with the THERMATIC automatic climate control, which provides a two climate zone, offering individual comfort for front passengers.
This feature uses a sensitive sensor system that regulates the temperature throughout the cabin while keeping the atmosphere fresh and clean with its integral fine particulate activated charcoal filter.
USB Ports in Center Console
With two USB ports incorporated in Center Console, passengers can both have the luxury of charging, accessing media from the device and connecting with CarPlay, where Navigation can access your Apple maps.
Both USB ports can recognise other USB drives, while only the USB port marked with battery charging symbol can charge.
Packed with ISOFIX Feature, the Mercedes-Benz has an ISOFIX anchor consisting of two lower loops per position to which the child seat can be attached and keeps your child safe.
A top tether anchor use also comes practical when the child seat is placed in the forward-facing position.
ECO Start/Stop Function
ECO Assist technology is a short term for ‘Ecological Drive Assist System,’ which performs two essential functions, allowing the driver to enhance 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.
Exterior of the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class
The exterior profile of the GLC-Class consists of a curvaceously muscular body that matches its eager and sporty performance.
It boasts AMG bodystyling that runs along the body, sporty air intake, and chrome trim in the front, side, and rear. Such dynamic design equips the crossover to better performance, handling, and stability on the road.
EASY-PACK Powered Tailgate
Access your cargo boot conveniently with the EASY-PACK powered tailgate feature, as it provides a single-touch button for opening/closing of your trunk.
Besides practicality, the tailgate also complements the latest taillamp design, creating more style and aesthetics on its rear profile.
High-performance LED Headlamp
Increase your driving safety no matter what time of the day with the High-performance LED headlamps which offer a brighter and sharper illumination.
These LED Daytime Running Lamps adjust the light distribution to the environment’s light and forthcoming drivers to avoid causing fatigue.
DAB Digital Radio Tuner
Advancing with digital technology, the DAB Digital Radio Tuner allows you to listen to your favourite digital radio stations.
Compared to the conventional analogue system, the auto-tuner provides a broader range of channels, exclusive digital content, and better sound quality while on the road.
Adjust and tilt your exterior mirror by a simple press of a button - this significantly prevents damages on your mirror housings, especially when caught in complicated spaces.
It also features an auto-dimming setup on the driver’s side exterior mirror and rear-view mirror inside.
The GLC-Class roof rails offer extra load space for bulky baggage pieces you can't fit in the trunk. They are sturdy and reliable roof rails that come in a stylish aluminium finish. Roof rails can secure carrying your bikes, skis, and snowboards, or a cargo container wherever you go.

Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers regarding purchasing a new Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class 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 ensuring 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 GLC-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 GLC-Class 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 for passenger and vintage cars there, 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 your appointed relationship manager or us 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 GLC-Class from overseas for me?
Yes, we can. We can import in a used Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class 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 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 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have Mercedes-Benz GLC-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 can utilize for Grab Car Rental usage.
Can I rent a Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class under my name (or company)?

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 Mercedes.

What accessories will come with my Mercedes-Benz GLC-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 GLC-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 GLC-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 ‘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 will likely not 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 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 regarding 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.
