The new Toyota Welcab
Discover the latest 2020/2021 Toyota Welcab Singapore Models.
Our Toyota Welcab 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 Toyota Welcab dealers in Singapore today. Established in 1989, with over 200+ 5-Star reviews on Facebook and Google.
Space-efficient and reliable, Toyota tailors the new Toyota Welcab as an especially-equipped vehicle to meet your needs by incorporating it with advanced equipment that supports mobility by senior citizens and persons with disability.
Available in 2.5X Welcab and 2.0X Welcab (7Seater), Toyota Welcab is an excellent choice for caregivers as they are specifically built and manufactured for that purpose. It comes with a 4-cylinder in-line engine that produces 182PS/151bhp and a maximum torque of 235 Nm/193 Nm through a 7-speed automatic transmission, depending on the variant.
It showcases innovative features such as a front passenger seat that tilts and rotate, a front passenger seat that automatically comes out of the car, and second-row seats that lower electrically for easier entry and egress.
Toyota Welcab Special Features
Versatile Seating Configuration
The Toyota Welcab's cabin provides ample space for a large family. It has a 7-seat configuration with a comfort seat package in the front, executive power seats in the second row, and a 5:5 split in the third row.
It only gets better with its luxurious leather interior seats with various seat configurations in the backrest, head bolsters, and under-thigh support.
Second Row Seats
Providing first-class safety and comfort, the Toyota Welcab minimizes body strain by positioning the seat cushions to mimic a conventional passenger seat.
It has a tilting seat mechanism, allowing the seat to tilt downwards, making it easier to reach the ground. This mechanism enables the passenger to exit the vehicle quickly.
Dual Power Slide Doors
The Toyota Welcab ensures a convenient and easy entry and exit with its dual-power sliding door technology. It automatically opens and closes on both sides with just a single press from the central control unit on the driver seat’s side.
This vehicle is also integrated with a pinch prevention system, ensuring safety from getting pinched between the doors.
Toyota Safety Sense C
The Toyota Safety Sense C is a cluster of advanced active safety equipment for a compact vehicle like the new Toyota Welcab.
It includes the Pre-crash Safety System, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic Highbeam, offering you peace of mind in any adventure you take.
Its fully automatic air conditioning system works extensively as both front and rear areas are equipped with adjustable vents, allowing the cold air to circulate evenly and provide a quality comfort experience.
The air ventilation is always clean and safe, thanks to the integrated Nanoe X system. This feature employs adequate particle ions produced from moisture in the air to shape small particles from electrically-charged water molecules.
These water molecules filled with OH radicals suppress bacteria, pollen, mould, and viruses in the air while also eliminating odours.
Smart Entry System
Innovative and convenient, Toyota’s latest Smart entry system allows you to accomplish many of the normal functions of operating the Toyota Welcab, such as locking and unlocking the doors and starting the engine.
It comes with a “recognize” technology that allows car control so long as the key is nearby, not necessarily in your hand, somewhere within 2.3 feet of either the front or back door handles
The automatic climate control offers comfort with its automatic setting of the fan speed and temperature without the hassle of toggling between control buttons.
It also gets more personalised as both front passengers can now individually set different temperatures according to their preferences.
Toyota Welcab Interior
3-spoke Multifunction Steering Wheel
This sports steering wheel has buttons for different control functions and style and extra comfort for the driver.
Almost all cockpit features, such as audio, Bluetooth, and cruise control, can be easily and quickly controlled without taking your hands off the steering wheel.
Sophisticated Central Dashboard
The Optitron meter provides different aesthetics to the instrument cluster, with its blue gradients resulting in a refined and sophisticated impression.
With its clean, high-tech coloured LED lighting for the backlight, the information displayed appears more readable and more comfortable on the eyes because of its illumination control.
Guaranteeing that you are always in tune with vehicle operations, the Toyota Welcab features a Multi-information that constantly update you with exterior weather conditions and safety systems.
Mounted between the tachometer and speedometer, directly in front of the steering wheel, with this feature, you will have essential driving information at eye level when you get behind the wheel.
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Bag
A Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) bag has been added to the all-new Toyota Welcab to strengthen the seatbelt and increase passenger safety in the event of a collision.
This function reduces the risk of injury between the affected passengers and the interior of the vehicle.
Passenger’s Seatback Table
The Toyota Welcab aims to provide a luxurious experience and strong individuality with its 8-seater cabin. With that, the design includes a passenger’s seat-back table with integrated 2 cup holders, which can be used for travel.
Electric Power Steering
Driving the Toyota Welcab becomes more convenient and personalized for the driver, as it incorporates an electric power steering that increases stability and handling control.
Its auto tilt-away & return function allows the driver to easily configure the preferred driving position, while the steering wheel’s multi-function feature consists of direct control options for the Toyota Safety Sense, voice recognition, and a hands-free system.
Exterior of the Toyota Welcab
Bi-Beam LED Headlamp
Incorporating high and low beams in one projector, the Bi-Beam LED Headlamps improves your visibility, especially at night.
These headlamps adjust the light distribution to the environment’s light and forthcoming drivers to avoid causing fatigue.
Power-retractable Door Mirrors
Electronically-folding exterior mirrors enable you to adjust your mirrors without leaving your seat.
It conveniently prevents damage to the exterior mirrors, especially when moving through small spaces. This function comes with an auto-dimming feature for the driver’s exterior mirror and the inside rear-view mirror.
As introduced, the windshield and front door glass with UV protection is Toyota’s latest automotive innovation to protect passengers from the sun’s harmful rays.
Passengers can afford to freely enjoy the sky and road’s open view without worries as the windshield, and door glass’s interior side consists of a layer of a high-performance UV-absorbing film to achieve that 99% UV-reduction.
LED Front Fog Lamp
A practical safety measure, the LED front fog lamp provides drivers with clear road visibility in adverse conditions.
It is equipped with high precision optics, rendering a highly regulated light to help drivers see in the thick fog and rain. It also comes in water and corrosion-resistant special housing.
Twin Moon Roof
Deployed with a huge twin moonroof, passengers of the Toyota Welcab models can enjoy a sense of openness and an airy feel inside the cabin. A glass panel that slides back, a little or a lot, between the vehicle’s roof and headliner brings natural light in the cabin and breathtaking views from the outside.
Foot-Operated Parking Brake
The foot-operated parking brake is located on the brake pedal’s left side and controls the rear brakes separately from the Toyota Welcab’'s standard hydraulic brakes.
It prevents the car from slanting down and serves as an emergency brake if the hydraulic system undesirably fails.

Toyota Welcab Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers regarding purchasing a new Toyota Welcab 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 Toyota Welcab 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 Welcab 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 Toyota Welcab from overseas for me?
Yes, we can. We can import in a used Toyota Welcab as long it is up to a maximum of 3 years old.
There are some regulations regarding 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 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 Toyota Welcab, 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 Welcab for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have Toyota Welcab 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 Welcab 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 Welcab under my name (or company)?
Yes, we can. You can lease your next Toyota Welcab 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.
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 Toyota Welcab 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 Toyota Welcab.
What should I do if my car breaks down or has an accident on the road?
Stay calm and don’t panic. You can call the support number available on the VINCAR decal located on your windshield’s left side. Our support team will be on standby 24/7 to provide you with the necessary roadside assistance and towing support.
Do you sell used/pre-owned Toyota Welcab?
Yes, we do. Check out our pre-owned section for a collection of pre-owned used cars.
Can I trade in my Toyota Welcab 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 Toyota Welcab?
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 Toyota Welcab?
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 Welcab?
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 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 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.
