Default re: The best car ads

Though old, its one of my all time favorite add. I just loved the tag line 'Lets Go'. After seeing this add, a decade back i was more inclined to buy an Alto and it was my first own personal car. Had my Alto for 3 years 3 months and covered almost all the states in south India. It never let me down and the tag line 'lets go' was pretty apt for me.

Recently I came across this ad by VW and really found it clever. To be honest, I feel that VW makes some of the best cars & car commercials . Lets see more such videos.

The ad is titled Kids dreams

Thanks for the morning treat - what an ad to start the day with. As is typical of VW's ads, this one too is superb & makes one smile. Could relate to a lot of those experiences, am sure it's the same for all of us as kids.

The expressions on their faces are simply priceless.

Pretty cool that they used non-VAG cars too in the ad (e.g. DeLorean).

I am not sure if this was posted earlier. Could not find in this thread. Not exactly for an Indian car but related to Customer Service provided by Porsche (which is now in India too).

Liked the video a lot

What would the world want from the Honda City in twenty years? Rewind the clock and restore the legend it once was.

That was the best ad - in fact Schumi's performance in the ad is terrific!! While the ones posted / quoted here do have an element of humor, Palio Ads were always rib tickling - take a look at these two :





I have used the former in some training sessions (in different contexts), and I think it features in the Top 10 of humorous auto ads.... even if you see it today there is a connect - DON'T TOUCH MY CAR!

Happened to see this post today. It is a great attempt at combining clips from all the Safari generations. Something on these lines is necessary today to present the Safari as an aspirational brand once again. It is a majestic car that was and is being let down by Tata for now perceivable reason. Mahindra Scorpio sells more units in a month than the Storme in a quarter. The problem is that most millenials do not perceive the Safari to be a capable vehicle.

Thanks a lot for the kind words Nissan1180.

Agree a 100% with what you've said. Let's just hope people from the Tata Motors team are reading.

Cute ad by Tata Motors. Not as brilliant as their usual stuff, but I like the way they've matched the people with the cars (girl in the Nexon, dude in the Hexa, ponytail trucker...).

Default Kia chose to pit Lamborghini as Forte's contendor in its promo ad [Funny ad]

The best car ads-kia.png
We are used to BMW - Audi tongue in cheek commercials, but this one from Kia stands out as well.

Having no space for the grocery, making children being left off for lack of space and finally, "Lambo is a 'little' faster, but for $400000 less, you can buy a Forte and a villa in Italy";

Reminds of our "kitna deta hai" tag line

Default Re: Kia chose to pit Lamborghini as Forte's contendor in its promo ad [Funny ad]

While I find the Ad a bit entertaining, IMO it is utterly and completely pointless. Anyone who can afford to buy a Lamborghini, will not even be looking sideways at a Kia, and someone who can ONLY afford a Kia, might still have aspirations to buy a Lamborghini, but will not do so, due to financial and practical reasons. It's a good thing that they didn't choose any of the Sports Sedans (Mercedes, Audi, BMW etc) for this Ad, otherwise they would have made the Kia look pointless lol.
Besides, no one buys a purebred Supercar or Sportscar for practical reasons. Exactly the opposite in fact. They are built for speed, handling, excitement and showoff value. Driving a Lamborghini is a loud statement to everyone around! (Pun Intended)
You certainly wouldn't find anyone getting excited if you tell them "I drive a Kia".

Cheers

Its made to show good things about Kia rather than direct comparison on whether its better than Lambo.

20 odd years ago, Nissan used to have ad with Altima against Merc C Class, It used to tout that Altima was more powerful and haul a boat that was attached behind. And that you could also buy the boat in addition to the Car for the same money.

This ad is about light hearted silliness, thats all. And at the same time makes Forte owners a bit happy.

Lambo owners and the rest of the world knows this is just a joke. Its not even brilliant.

And when both cars share the screen time most of the people seeing this will be looking at the Lambo and KIA is paying for it
