Toyota Corolla Special Features
Multi-Information Display (MID)
Providing you with all essential driving information, the Toyota Corolla features the advanced Multi-Information Display (MID) that keeps you updated with your vehicle operation, weather conditions, and safety systems.
This feature is located at the instrument panel, displaying various information and messages that help you operate your car more comfortably.
8-inch Touchscreen Multimedia
Stay connected while on the road with Toyota Corolla’s 8-inch Touchscreen Display. This feature allows you to access your digital instrument apps while on the move using voice command with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
It also incorporates the latest Toyota infotainment features like Bluetooth connectivity, voice recognition, and my-Toyota app. It connects with your smartphone for live weather forecasts, travel, and traffic updates.
Digital radio (DAB+)
Toyota Corolla now showcases a Digital Radio (DAB+) that makes it easy for you to flip through instead of using the old bland ‘search’ button.
It automatically tunes to all available stations, transmitting the track and artist information to your car’s multimedia screen. It also displays traffic updates without interrupting the audio stream.
All-speed Active Cruise Control
All-speed Active Cruise Control is a feature that keeps your car at a preselected speed using Toyota’s built-in camera and front-grille-mounted radar, ensuring a maintained safe distance between vehicles.
The system will automatically slow down your vehicle when it senses a slower vehicle moving within distance. Active Cruise Control enables a vehicle's speed to be smartly, reactively controlled without driver interference.
Reverse parking and maneuvering are considerably more straightforward and smoother using the rearview camera.
When reverse gear is engaged, it is activated automatically and displays the vehicle (with dynamic guidelines) on the central monitor. The media display's dynamic guidelines give drivers a clear orientation when maneuvering.
Vehicle Stability Control
Stabilizing the car while turning in a curve, the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) feature in the Toyota Corolla efficiently prevents sideways slipping of wheels while maneuvering or unexpected steering.
Braking is automatically applied to all four individual wheels when the vehicle detects a loss of traction or slip, and engine power decreases to guarantee the vehicle’s safety.
Toyota Corolla Interior
60/40 Split-fold Rear Seats
Toyota Corolla caters to a seating arrangement that offers excellent flexibility with its split-folding rear seats that can also be stored up sideways.
A 6:4 split-flat-folding back seat, sliding and reclining bench design with adjustable head restraints for each position. Part of the seatback reclines individually in four different positions or folds flat for cargo handling.
Cup and Bottle Holders
It comes with 4 x cup holders and 4 x bottle holders that provide both the driver and passenger a safe place to put their hot drinks while on the road.
This cup holder keeps your bottles secure and within reach and allows you to focus on driving, therefore, less likely to get into an accident.
To keep your child secure, the new Toyota Corolla offers an ISOFIX Package that includes an ISOFIX anchor with two lower loops per position to which you can attach a child’s seat.
A top tether anchor use also comes practical when the child seat is in the forward-facing position.
Toyota Corolla’s built-in Sun Visors come with adjustable hinged flaps to protect the driver’s eye and the glare of sunlight. It lowers the interior’s temperature by blocking the sun to reduce the heat build-up inside your vehicle.
This provides a convenient way to access your important things within your reach. Door pockets save your time and make it easy for you to locate your stuff, such as glasses, phones, credit cards, keys, and coins.
SRS Airbag Package
The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags integrated into the Toyota Corolla mark a difference between a fatal crash and a big crash.
These seven SRS airbags can effectively reduce occupants’ injuries and the vehicle’s interior. Driver’s airbag spreads from the steering wheel and the front passengers from the dashboard.
Exterior of the Toyota Corolla
Automatic High Beam
Automatic High Beam offers a clear view of the road ahead. This feature senses the oncoming headlights and taillights that prevent your high beams from blinding you and other drivers on the lane.
It turns off high beams and activates low beams until headlights are detected. The system re-activates high beams automatically as headlights pass.
LED Tail Lamps
Built-in to the Toyota Corolla to provide higher visibility at night and guarantee you better safety in driving.
Tailored with several light bulb systems, LED tail lights typically emit a series of small, often bright, glittering lights, making it easier for vehicles to be seen in the dark by drivers trailing behind other cars.
Heated Door Mirrors
Trimming down the condensation in cold weather, the Heated door mirrors of Toyota Corolla prevent the mirrors from icing-up.
The system automatically heats the exterior mirror upon the vehicle’s startup when the outside temperature is low or when the rear defrost feature is enabled.
Rear LED Fog Lamps
Providing visibility amidst adverse conditions while flaunting a sporty character, Toyota Corolla features LED Fog Light with precision optics, which provides a highly regulated light to help drivers in the thick fog and rain.
Machinated in special housing with high resistance to water, impact, and corrosion.
LED Daytime Running Lamps
The Toyota Corolla LED Daytime Running Lamps, otherwise known as LED DRL is integrated into the headlight clusters, making it easier for other motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and cars to notice your presence on the road.
This feature is most likely to lessen multiple vehicle daytime accidents.
15-inch Wheels with Aero Cap
Practically stylish and highly rigid, the 15-inch wheels are sure to give that sporty aura to the car. It comes with an aero cap that provides a clean, eye-catching bolder look that optimizes the Toyota Corolla’s aerodynamics.

Toyota Corolla Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers when it comes to purchasing a new Toyota Corolla 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 can 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 every time.
What Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla from overseas for me?
Yes, we can. We can import a used Toyota Corolla 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 concerning 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 concerning this service.
Can I pre-order a Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla under my name (or company)?
Yes, we can. You can lease your next Toyota Corolla with use under your name or Corporate/company entity. Our Car Leasing programs are for a minimum of 12 months. Most car leases taken up by our clientele are between 12-36 months.

What should I do if there is a problem (technical issue / global recall issue) with my car within the warranty period?
Just bring your Toyota Corolla back to us and we will be able to repair or service it at our dedicated in-house servicing center.
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 Toyota.

What accessories will come with my Toyota Corolla?
Upholstery, fittings, and accessories can differ from model to model. We advise that you ask your relationship manager concerning 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 Toyota Corolla?
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 Toyota Corolla?
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 standard market rates. After contacting the dealer – he/she will say that the expected COE price is likely 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 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 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.
