VRT on importing a Mercedes CLA?

The VRT Calculator on Revenue's site does not have the model of car I am considering importing into Ireland. How can I know what VRT I will be charged before I present the car? It is a Mercedes-Benz CLA 220 AMG Line Auto that is six months old. The calculator has the 180 AMG Line Auto and the far more powerful 45 AMG 4Matic, but none of the models in between.

How much VRT on imported Honda Civic?


I'm having trouble calculating the VRT due on a car that I'm thinking of buying from Northern Ireland. The VRT Calculator on the ROS website doesn't seem to have the exact spec I'm looking at, although the car is for sale in Ireland too. It's a Honda Civic - five-door hatchback, 1.5-litre petrol engine, manual transmission, 12,000 miles, registered November 2017. If you have any advice that would be great!

Thanks, Katie
