Maruti Suzuki recently launched its premium urban compact – Ignis, and also expanded the portfolio for NEXA, its premium automotive retail channel.


Designed for the burgeoning millennial generation, this car is truly unique and unconventional. Every part of Ignis, from the captivating front to distinct proportions, to its cockpit styled interiors, has been designed to be different. This difference is what forms the foundation of the entire communication. At every step of the way, this None of a Kind car has inspired None of a Kind communication.


Pre-campaign research by Hakuhodo Percept revealed that EDM or Electronic Dance and Music is an intrinsic part of the Millennials’ culture, and what better way to connect with them, than to speak in their own language and attract this particular segment through a launch concert.


Commenting on the campaign, Vinay Pant, AVP – Marketing, Maruti Suzuki, said “Ignis has been created to stand out with its unconventional design. It comes with never seen before features and gives its owners a chance to personalise. Everything about it is unique and this is what we intended to highlight with our communication. The campaign is completely in sync with the car’s philosophy. It successfully differentiates itself from the regular automobile advertising and speaks to our audience in a language they can all relate to.”


Throughout the Ignis campaign, the philosophy of being different is clearly defined. The TVC, shows a mix of varied art installations and unconventional people, laying down the base for Ignis. Its unconventional imagery has an element of surprise and a voice over explains what is different.


According to Sabuj Sengupta, National Creative Director, Hakuhodo Percept, “The moment we saw the Ignis, we knew that it’s no ordinary car. Our objective was clear- we wanted to tell the millennial that it’s a premium urban compact born with the same mindset as theirs. And all our communication is designed to be different.”
