Default Mahindra Renault Logan's dig on other cars (Ideal car for love games)

Came across this video of Logan taking a dig on all maruti cars and even on a SsangYong Rexton. Any comments people?

This video was shot in M&M's plant in Kandivali.
Though I doubt this is an official Mahindra video or viral campaign.
Seems to be the work of a guy working there and clearly loving his Logan

That was funny. Thanks to some of those big time Logan fans out there.

When you actually look at the Logan, it is a wonderful car. It got power, very fuel efficient, got all basic features, sensible pricing etc. When people plan on buying a new car, Logan is located last on most of the "Check-Lists". IMO, this would be because it is widely used as cabs. Now, that is something that makes you reluctant. Indica is a great car but most the people I know were reluctant on buying it for the same reason.

ROFL ...
Mahindra Renault should have thought about making an official TVC out-of-this idea.
AT LEAST, they could have sold SOME Logans !

Rode in a Meru Logan - 125000 km - not a rattle, pulls well
Rode in a Meru Indigo Marina - 75000km, rattle, looks tired, stress cracked windscreen

Go figure

Maybe the game that was going on in Logan was a very conservative one ;-)
or it could be just eye game that was going on !!!

LOL. That is a fantastic idea to advertise about the suspension! They should've launched it on TV. It would, definitely, have helped Logan's brand recall!

This should have been thought about or advertised a few years ago - too late now.

Has a lot of truth in it though.

TATA realized it and hence the Indica Vista and Indigo Manza arent available to the taxiwala. They will put up these for the taxi market when they are ready to launch their next gen's.

This advt if they had used during the launch of Logan then they would have still been sold like anything IFF(If and Only If) the shocks were so great when compared to other. rather than using this type of creative advt they used some crap advt where in some junk head will be sitting in the lab and seeing what the girl does drooping from a parachute on to a trailer etc .

LoL, thats a cool advt. better then some playing on TV these days!!
By the way IMO Logan failed cause of pricing. The world cheapest sedan was as costlier an any other sedan available at that time here. Otherwise its a nice car to travel in.
