The information provided below explains the many advantages of purchasing or leasing a New Zealand equipped Mercedes-Benz or AMG vehicle from an authorised New Zealand Mercedes-Benz dealer.

Vehicles built specifically for the New Zealand market

The New Zealand market is different. In fact, only some vehicle types and engines are available in New Zealand because each model we bring to the country is Market approved, and Engineer Certified in Germany for use in our unique New Zealand market.

When establishing equipment levels for the vehicles available in our local market, Mercedes-Benz New Zealand chooses standard features and equipment that are best suited to meet the challenges of New Zealand’s wide-ranging environmental and driving conditions. And importantly meet the needs and expectations of the New Zealand customers.

If you are comparing vehicles from other markets, like the United Kingdom, please bear in mind this critical component as in many cases, New Zealand New cars are higher equipped than those in the U.K. Therefore, a simple Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)* comparison is inaccurate at best and only represents part of the entire picture.

There are also market specific equipment differences. Depending on the model, United Kingdom and New Zealand New vehicles can differ considerably in terms of specifications. Unlike U.K vehicles, New Zealand new vehicles may include any of the following features in terms of specification or standard equipment:

  • Airbags - Side Rear
  • Reversing Camera
  • PRE-SAFE® anticipatory occupant protection system
  • COMAND Online – with media interface
  • Driving Assistance package – inc Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane-Keeping Assist, DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist, PRE-SAFE® Brake with Active Pedestrian Protection, Brake Assist (BAS) with Junction Assist, Rear-end Collision warning and protection system.
  • LED Intelligent Light System
  • New Zealand mapping data
  • Rear seats – split folding, with through-loading facility.

Whether new or pre-owned, buying a New Zealand New vehicle comes with added benefits.
