Why buy your Mercedes-Benz in New Zealand

You're seriously thinking of buying a Mercedes-Benz product? Great, we're delighted. Your next passenger car from Mercedes-Benz will perfectly complement your lifestyle and desires, but there are a few things you need to know first.

Not all passenger cars are the same, and quite often there are differences beneath the surface of a car that you may not be aware of. Beyond that, purchasing your passenger car from an authorised Mercedes-Benz retailer provides a host of benefits come time for servicing or when upgrading to your next passenger car.

At an authorised Mercedes-Benz retailer, you are assisted by factory trained and certified staff. All sales consultants, service agents, and technicians have been through a rigorous training program to ensure you receive the best possible experience.

The information provided below explains the many advantages of purchasing or leasing a New Zealand new Mercedes-Benz or AMG passenger car from an authorised Mercedes-Benz retailer.

  • Made for New Zealand

    Made for New Zealand

    The motor vehicle industry in New Zealand is unique, being that we are one of a few countries in the world to allow the importation of ‘Grey imports’. These are passenger cars that were not built for New Zealand, but have been brought in to the country as new or used passenger cars by private importers rather than the official factory distributor such as Mercedes-Benz New Zealand Limited in the case of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars.

    When establishing equipment levels for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars available in our local market, Mercedes-Benz New Zealand Limited chooses standard features and equipment that best suits the challenges of New Zealand's wide-ranging environment and driving conditions. As such import passenger cars may be missing certain key features added to New Zealand new passenger cars.

    In many cases New Zealand ordered cars are higher equipped than those imported from overseas. Therefore, a simple Manufacturer Recommended Retail Price (MRRP) comparison is often inaccurate at best and only represents part of the entire picture.


  • Certified used Mercedes-Benz passenger cars.

    If you are looking to purchase a second hand Mercedes-Benz passenger car, there are a number of benefits to visiting your local authorised retailer. The ‘Mercedes-Benz Certified’ program for used Mercedes-Benz passenger cars ensures you are purchasing a genuine New Zealand new Mercedes-Benz passenger car that was designed and built for our conditions.

    All Mercedes-Benz Certified passenger cars come with the peace of mind that a Mercedes-Benz passenger car has been serviced and maintained to the highest standard by factory trained technicians. With extensive certifications including comprehensive service history and a 118 point safety check, you can be sure a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz is a vehicle up to our standards, giving you that extra feeling of confidence unique to owning a Mercedes-Benz.

    All our Certified Pre-Owned passenger cars come with a minimum 2-year, unlimited kilometre, nationwide factory backed warranty and more:

    • 118-point check
    • Factory trained technicians
    • Complimentary 24hr roadside assistance with Mercedes-Benz

  • Mercedes me Connect.

    Mercedes me connect

    Mercedes me connect seamlessly connects you to your passenger car, and your passenger car to everything that is important to you. A personal digital companion that brings your Mercedes-Benz into your life, giving you access to a whole range of connected services designed to make your life and mobility easier.

    The Mercedes me connect app gives you total control over your Mercedes-Benz, housing all of your remote access services, from Remote Start* and Locking to Vehicle Tracking and Parked Vehicle Location.

    A key aspect to note with all Grey Import Mercedes-Benz passenger cars is that Mercedes me will not automatically function in New Zealand. All connected vehicle systems are factory programmed to work with their home nation’s mobile network, and as such any imported vehicles will not automatically connect our local New Zealand data provider.

    For older New Zealand new passenger cars, an adapter is available from your local retailer which will give your car a selection of the Mercedes me functions.
