Dentsu Impact and Maruti Suzuki Swift are here with a fresh perspective

From the day of its launch, Maruti Suzuki Swift has redefined performance across the automotive industry. This desire to face any challenge thrown at it has strengthened the brand’s image as a leader in the last 10 years.

Having been there and done that, the brand now has plans to go the next level by challenging its own limits. It aims to shift from the performance of the car to the performance of an individual who is behind the wheels. Thus, the new brand campaign celebrates the idea ‘PUSH YOUR LIMITS.’

However, this strategic shift from an aspirational brand to an inspirational one could not be complete without one critical element - personalities who are admired as symbols of unconventional achievement. Personalities like Vijender Singh, AB de Villiers, and the man who jumped out of a plane without a parachute, Luke Aikins. Using these unique ambassadors, brand Swift wants to tell the world that only those who go the extra mile inspire people, not the ordinary.

The brand plans to launch and embed this philosophy with an action packed TVC. Filled with quotes, match-cuts, high-octane shots and electric music, the commercial is all set to get the pulse racing.

After, giving its consumer the much-needed adrenaline rush, Maruti Suzuki Swift will further compliment and spread its philosophy through a 360-degree surround. The campaign is all set to launch by the end of this month and is expected to push its past limits.

Mr. R S Kalsi, Executive Director, Marketing &amp, Sales, Maruti Suzuki

“Since the last two years Maruti Suzuki has made a definitive shift in its offerings and positioning in India. Today we have a host of new offering which are at par with international products all the while making them more relevant for the Indian consumer today. With products like CIAZ and Brezza becoming one the highest selling models, its proof to the fact the consumer today has appreciated the new product offerings. This excitement and effort has to be taken to the existing portfolio of brands also. With Swift being one of our star brands, it was important we bring in the sheen and attention back on the brand. The new commercial is just the right step on that route, where we bring in the dynamism on to Swift in a way like never done before.

Vinay Pant, Associate Vice-President, Marketing, Maruti Suzuki

The new Maruti Suzuki Swift campaign is here further our mission of being seen as new and more dynamic Maruti Suzuki. With a strong message like ‘Push your limits’, the brand aims to shift from the performance of the car to the performance of an individual who is behind the wheels. This strategic shift from an aspirational brand to an inspirational one will surely connect with our target audience. 

Anupama Ramaswamy, Executive Creative Director, Dentsu Impact.

“With the new campaign of ‘Push Your Limits’, we aim to go beyond the mundane ‘product-talk’. It’s an attitude that symbolises the people who drive the car, those who challenge and push themselves. And that’s why the personalities shown in the commercial are not your regular models, but heroes who inspire. The car moves exactly like them in the commercial while the match-cut editing maintains the tempo and adrenaline rush from the word ‘go’.”
