MUMBAI: Maruti Suzuki ARENA has rolled out its first brand campaign. The creative agency involved is Dentsu Aegis Network’s Dentsu Impact. This customer-centricity has led to the birth of the Maruti Suzuki ARENA experience, which has been designed for the young and modern India. The production house involved in the making is Sitting Duck Pictures and produced by Sanjay Bhattacharjee, Sushant Desai.
With this campaign, they intend to build awareness about the new Maruti Suzuki ARENA while showcasing the dynamic, trendy, social and connected aspects of the experience.
As their longstanding partners, Dentsu Impact has been involved to create a seamless car buying experience at Maruti Suzuki ARENA by redesigning showrooms, introducing online to offline consumer journey, implementing new brand identity and creating content at various touchpoints across the showroom.
Speaking on the campaign, Dentsu Impact president Amit Wadhwa said, "Maruti Suzuki is the undisputed leader in passenger cars. And as a leader, it has been setting benchmarks across all aspects for its customers - design, technology, and experiences. Maruti Suzuki ARENA is one of the great milestones of Maruti Suzuki in India, and as their partners we are excited in being a part of this new car buying experience come to life through this campaign."
Positioning Maruti Suzuki ARENA as a ‘car buying experience designed with you in mind’, the campaign line is ‘A destination called you. A feeling called Maruti Suzuki ARENA’. Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan is the face of the campaign.
Dentsu Impact national creative director Anupama Ramaswamy said, "Maruti Suzuki ARENA is a change which happens once in many years. In this case, it is not about a single purchase or transaction. Maruti Suzuki ARENA has been designed keeping the customer right at the center. This core thought is reflected in the campaign idea ‘A destination called you. A feeling called Maruti Suzuki ARENA’. The campaign is a celebration of the ARENA experience, which is trendy, connected and social.”
Maruti Suzuki sells its vehicles through 4 sales channels, the existing Maruti Suzuki Channel, Nexa, Maruti Suzuki Commercial and Maruti Suzuki True Value. And since its launch on 31st August, 2017, all the existing Maruti Suzuki Channels are now being revamped to Maruti Suzuki ARENA.
“The reason for choosing Varun Dhawan as the brand ambassador is that he is young, talented, extremely energetic and socially wired, making him the perfect fit for Maruti Suzuki ARENA,” Ramaswamy added.
