Tata Manza Club Class Sedan
Manza Club Class – Membership is open.
India’s favourite car maker Tata Motors unveiled a new version of their next generation sedan, the Manza, on 16th October, 2012 and Draftfcb Ulka conceptualized and executed its multi-media launch campaign.
With the new Manza, Tata Motors has once again reset the bar. This introduction will change expectations for sedan buyers in the country with its plush interiors and state-of-the-art technology features as well as an Infinity Contrast roof and new 8 Split-spoke Alloys, making it the most premium sedan in its class.
Taking forward its luxurious lineage, the new Manza has been positioned as ‘The Club Class Sedan’, to build brand aspiration and elevate the sedan as the ultimate in style and luxury.
The TV campaign created by Draftfcb Ulka, shows a young couple inside a club and draws a parallel between the experiences of an elite club with that of the new Manza. The analogy brings alive the new Manza’s contemporary styling, its tastefully designed interiors and advanced features – truly befitting the title of Club Class.
Commenting on the creative brief given to the agency, Mr. Virat Khullar, Head - Sedan Product Group, Tata Motors, said, “The new Manza has been designed to meet the needs of the discerning customer. With the addition of class leading features like the first-in-class Touchscreen Multimedia Navigation with in-built GPS, Fully Automatic Climate Control and premium Italian Leather Upholstery as well as a host of exterior changes, there was a need to communicate how the new Manza enhances your overall experience and sets a new precedent for sedans in its class.”
On the rationale behind the campaign, Kartik Smetacek, Creative Director, Draftfcb Ulka, said, “The new Manza seeks to occupy the polestar position in its category. So while the task was to announce the new news, it was also to clearly, unambiguously move the Manza to its stated new positioning – the club class sedan.”
Ranging from popular television channels, to print, outdoor and online, the 360 degree campaign endeavors to maximize the experience of Club Class at various touch points.

MakeMyTrip PR note
MakeMyTrip.com, India’s leading online travel company was founded in the year 2000 by Deep Kalra. Created to empower the Indian traveler with instant booking and comprehensive choices, the company began its journey in the US-India travel market. It aimed to offer a range of best-value products and services along with cutting-edge technology and dedicated round-the-clock customer support.
Last year they did the communication on memories unlimited which spoke about great holiday experience through makemytrip.com. This year the company realized that while the world moves towards a digitally advanced era, consumers in India are still uncertain about online booking of hotels. A research revealed that most consumers remain concerned about the gap between what is being promised and what is being delivered. The new campaign of travel solutions portal MakeMyTrip answers this dilemma of consumers through its new proposition of guaranteed 100 per cent money back on hotel bookings.
Challenges for the new commercial was manifold – Live up to the benchmarks set by the previous makemytrip.com commercials; hard enough to change the behaviour of people to book hotels through online sites. Above all to communicate the same in a humorous manner which Makemytrip commercials are known for.
TVC shows an Indian visiting one of the Asia Pacific countries. The man, who wants to eat a chicken dish, runs from one market to another in search of a roadside hawker or a restaurant. He then meets a lady dressed like a chicken, standing in front of restaurant named 'Chi Can Restaurant' holding the menu card. Finally excited to find a restaurant that apparently makes chicken dishes, the man enters and orders a dish. After a happy meal, he congratulates the chef for the tasty chicken dish. To his shock, the chef replies that the dish was not chicken but dog's meat. The TVC ends with the message, 'Jo dikhega, wahi milega' and promotes the guaranteed 100 per cent money back offer on hotel bookings.
We have created the master film in 35 sec and a shorter edit of 20 sec.
