Sharing similarities in size with the Renault Duster, this vehicle looks pretty neat. The name ix25 is just a code name; Hyundai is going to give this compact SUV a different name. The name i20 is quite familiar among Indians and so Hyundai is going to give this compact SUV a new name.

Tata Super Nano-A Step ahead!!

"Super Tata Nano"

If you have underestimated the Tata Nano, maybe it’s time to take back that perception.

There was a time when Tata Nano was considered the cheapest car in the world. With a price tag of $ 3000 (Rs. 1.8 lakhs) the Nano was the most affordable car in the world. There was also a time when Tata had the Nano encrusted in Gold, Silver and gem stones. However, that was not a functional model. Now it’s time for Tata Super Nano.

 

"Gold Tata Nano"

"Tata Nano Gold"

The Nano is a nice and peppy car that is reliable for intra-city driving. The Nano found its way from India directly to various countries and even in Jay Leno’s Garage.

"Jay Leno's Tata Nano"
www.thetruthaboutcars.com

However, the most affordable car has now joined the league of the exclusives. The car competes with cars like Skoda Superb, Hyundai Elantra and even Audi. The credits go to JA Motorsport for converting the cheapest car into an exclusive ride.

The Nano as we knew it:

The Tata Nano was a cute and cuddly ride that could snuggle into almost all streets. The Nano did not just find its way into Tata Motor’s lineup. There was a thought behind conceiving the idea of bringing out this car.  A country like India is dominated by the middle classes. Most families have a 2-wheeler, the father drives a 2 wheeler, and the elder child stands in front, the wife behind holding a baby. Sadly, this is the norm in India. Apart from the risk it holds, the ride is quite uncomfortable for the entire family. That very situation bought out a thought that went into the creation of Tata Nano.

The car was never meant to be coined a “ Rs. 1 lakh car”, but during an interview between Mr. Ratan Tata and Financial Times (British Newspaper) at the Geneva Motor Show, a question was raised about the price of the car, to which, Mr. Tata had said “About 1 lakh”.

"Ratan and Tata Nano"
Image Source: www.rediff.com

The low-end rural car had to look presentable and yet cost low. There were many issues that Tata Motors had to face. Criticisms apart, the price of Steel was not in favor and then there were issues like safety. It was too late for Tata’s rebuttal against the claim of bringing a 1 lakh rupee car. However, there were exponential challenges and price barriers had kept the company pondering about the alternatives.

However, with the intelligent minds put to task and the ability to oversee the obstacles had finally paid off.

The Tata Nano was launched with a 624 cc multi-point fuel injected water cooled naturally aspirated 2 cylinder gasoline engine. The car had 2 valves per cylinder that were mated to a 4-speed manual transmission producing 38 Po power and 51 Nm torque. That said, the Nano maintained its pride by becoming India’s most fuel efficient petrol car that gave a pleasing mileage of 25.35 kmpl. This rear wheel drive configuration makes it quite interesting as a driver’s car.

The JA touch:

Coimbatore based JA Motorsport had something speedy and demonic (in a manner of speaking) in mind. The custom house took all the traits that Nano had and used them to create something exciting and interesting.

You might think that this is just a modified Nano. But hold that judgment till you see what’s inside.

The Super Nano is based on the regular Nano. However, adding features like a full body kit, slick tires, bolt-on roll cage, smoke head and tail lamps might help change your perception a tad and you might still not be totally convinced.

But, picture Carbon fiber treatment on the dashboard, Recaro seats, racing steering wheel, mounted paddle shifters and you might start gaining interest. But, the most convincing part is the 1.3 liter engine that does a super duty job on the Super Nano. Surprisingly this engine churns out a maximum power of about 230 HP.

"Super Tata Nano"

"Ja Motor Nano"

This Super Powered engine races the Nano at around 190 kmph. You’d definitely love the look on the faces of most people who look down at the Nano.

"JM Super Nano interiors"

The Chassis has also been tampered with and the wheels are a beauty to look at. The MRF ZLO racing slicks are like racing shoes on a horse.

"Super Tata nano"
Image Source: http://www.rediff.com/

This is currently India’s fastest hot hatch and has some neat specs that come as a surprise. The massive power is tamed by AP Racing disc brakes on all the wheels.

"Super Tata nano tires"

This isn’t a regular Nano and you wouldn’t want it if you’re just a commuter. The Super Nano is better suited on a race track over the normal crowded roads. JA racing has some serious Auto Freaks who have the adequate skills of drilling your car into a beast. They carry a reputation for making Formula Ford Cars in India among their other accomplishments.

Price:

With all that power comes a super price tag. Converting your Nano a Super boost and a new identity would cost you Rs. 25 lakhs (for the entire job)

Bottom Line:

Although the Super Nano is suited for a track, it is a great accomplishment. This is a great upgrade and you might want to check it out if you travel to Coimbatore.

 

Transporter movie cars- a review

  1. “Respect a man’s car, and the man will respect you”
  2. “Greet the man”
  3. “Seat belt”
  4. “Never drink coffee in the car”
  5. “If you take care of the car, the car will take care of you”

If you abide by these rules, you may proceed.

The Fast and Furious was a great franchise, but nothing beats the Transporter when it comes to class, sophistication and action.

More so, Jason Statham plays Frank Martin in the movies, nobody is as classy as him when it comes to action movies. The Transporter franchise was pretty successful, so much so that there is a TV show named Transporter Series, with a different Frank Martin.

The French film series, Transporter was a success from 2002-2008. The protagonist (Jason Statham) named Frank Martin is a professional Freelance courier driver for hire. Jason Statham is an accomplished martial artist and the stunts performed in the movies show Jason Statham in action. The Hong Kong style fight scenes are performed by Jason himself and so this movie was a block buster hit.

This article is going to give you a brief overview on the cars that were seen in the Transporter movies and the series. The article also includes rumors and news about the forthcoming Transporter movie named “Transporter Legacy

First, let’s take a look at the cars that were seen in the Transporter movies.

1999 BMW 735i E38:

The BMW 735i was the first car that Frank Martin uses in the first transporter movie, till its blown into pieces. The production of the 735i started in 1998 (Mid-year) to 2001 (mid-year)

Originating from Germany, the E38 BMW was quite a luxurious sedan that had a RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) and it was offered only in Europe.  This 5 speed auto transmission car was powered by a V8 engine. It produced 345 Nm of torque @ 3800 RPM. Although the styling of the car was a bit off, these cars were sheer performers and combined luxurious interiors. This BMW went as fast as 228 kmph or 142 mph as claimed by the factory. The car accelerated from 0-60 mph in 8.1 seconds, although it does not seem too fast, it was quite good then. The mileage delivered ranged between 21.3mpg to 25.6 mpg.

Mercedes-Benz W140:

Soon after Frank’s car is blown into shreds and after the bad guy pow-pow action, Frank takes the Mercedes Benz W140 by force.  The Merc W140 is a series of flagship vehicles that were produced in the late 90’s by German auto maker Mercedes Benz. The W140 was unveiled on November 16th 1990. The W140 came in both sedan and coupe versions. The sedan versions were powered by 3, 3.2, 3.5, 4.2,5 and 6 liter Turbo-Diesel engine models. Safety and Comfort were of utmost importance in these Mercedes models. A few safety features included; Effective Braking systems, Brake Assist and more power while stopping the car. ESP (Electronic Stability Program) that used on-board computers to improve vehicle handling response when the driving conditions used to get really difficult.  Again, these cars lacked the modern style, but they were considered pretty elegant back then.

2004 Audi A8 6.0 W12:

Making a fresh entry and beginning a new relation with Audi, the Transporter 2 movie focused on the Audi A8. Soon after Frank Martin’s BMW and his home are blown to pieces, he gets himself a new home and a new car.

The Audi A8 was produced between 2004 and 2011. Currently Audi has discontinued the 6.0 W12 models.

Powered by a W12 spark-ignition engine, DOHC with 5998 cc displacement ready for action, the A8 produced 580 Nm of torque @ 4000 RPM.  The car went as fast as 250kmph and accelerated from0-100 in just 5.2 seconds. It was clearly an action machine that made fans worldwide love Audi more than ever.

Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster:

The transporter 2 movie had a pleasant surprise during the end. Jason Statham drives a Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster during the pursuit scene.

The Murcielago Roadster was powered by a V12 60 degree, light-alloy block, Longitudinal central rear mounted engine that had a permanent four-wheel drive and viscous traction system. The bull powered 640 BHP and produced 660 Nm of torque @ 6000 RPM.

Audi A8 6.0 W12 Face lift:

The Transporter 3 movie was released after the previous transporter was a smashing success and Frank Martin drove a 2008 Face lifted Audi A8 6.0 W12.

With a 5998 cc, 4 cylinder DOHC 6-liter W12 Spark Ignition Engine that produced 446 bhp, the A8 produced 580 Nm torque @ 4000 RPM. This sedan delivered 4 mph mileage in the city and 7 on the highway. But then again, mileage isn’t really a concern for those who buy such a car. The 6 speed auto transmission on this car made an ever lasting impression in the movie.

Statham’s Cars:

Jason Statham is a big car enthusiast. As lady luck is in his favor, he owns various Audi cars and a Lamborghini too. His car collection is pretty awesome; he promotes the Transporter series quite magnificently.

"Jason Statham's cars"

Transporter Legacy:

Transporter Legacy is scheduled to release in June 2015. Sadly, we wont be seeing Jason Statham playing the role of Frank Martin. Let’s hope Ed Skrein plays Martin’s character as good as Jason did. There aren’t any updates on the cars that are going to be used, let’s hope we find some aggressive rides on screen. 🙂

Acura Super Bowl commercial 2015 and previous Ads

Acura Super Bowl commercial

Acura, the luxury vehicle division of the Japanese auto maker Honda Motor Company has made a strong presence felt in the United States and Canada since March 1986.

Luxury and performance are two of the highest selling propositions of the brand. The brand has its rooting in Mexico as well as China. Acura is among the best-selling luxury cars in the US. With new and improved designs along with the introduction of new models post the year 2000, the brand has picked up a good pace.

Co-existing with various other brands, Acura is a notch higher when it comes to marketing and advertising. The Japanese company is undoubtedly techno-friendly with all its cars. But, advertising is a crucial factor. Super Bowl is one of the biggest platforms for such companies to increase credibility as well as the awareness of their brand.

A 30 second commercial costs around $ 4 million but, the awareness and trust is priceless. Acura has had a fair share of some of the most frisky and cheerful commercials. The following Acura Super Bowl commercials should entertain you for a while. Have a look.

Jerry Seinfeld:

Jerry Seinfeld, the richest actor in the world is known to endorse Acura ad series. This Acura Super Bowl commercial shows the comedian looking for an Acura sports car, the sales man tells him that it has been sold. Seinfeld takes a shot at trying to convince the guy who bought the car through his entertaining methods, giggles, laughs and a whole lot of that.

The ending of this commercial also features Jay Leno entering into the competition. There isn’t any better way to promote the NSX model, especially when the commercial features these popular faces and also features an alien. It’s a little funny, a little mood smoothing and overall a great Ad from Acura.

Let the race begin:

Nothing beats the original. This Acura Super Bowl commercial shows a race track and a couple of horses that are ready to race. But the twist here is that these horses are robots. All except one, while it seems that the race goes in favor of the robots because of their mean and aggressive look, their massive power, nothing challenges the original. As the Ad progresses, the mighty robots are overtaken by a sprinting stallion. The stallion represents Acura and the successful legacy that the brand carries as opposed to various other brands that are depicted by normal functioning robots.

Calvin Johnson:

One thing that sets apart a football player than the rest is his aggression. This Acura Super Bowl commercial shows the famous American football wide receiver, Calvin Johnson Jr. from the Detroit Lions of the NFL (National Football League) who is transformed from an aggressive looking football player. By changing his attire and removing all his tattoos that depict aggression of sorts, Calvin Johnson Jr. dresses up in the most elegant fashion. This same comparison is done with the newly refined Acura TL. This car had undergone various design changes in the year 2012 and hence this Ad shows no extra selling proposition but this.

This is an elegant and sophisticated commercial that portrays aggression in an elegant manner.

My way:

Building a car takes a lot more than just sketching out a concept, building one and producing plenty. The Acura 2015 TLX commercial shows the hard work, motivation and innovative thoughts that Acura’s team put in completely to build the new TLX. It’s just not just about luxury, there is a lot more that happens to the car. With rigorous tracks, rocky terrains that would leave the car bleeding from all bolts, the Acura team put forward their best thoughts, best brains and the best of everything. This Acura Super Bowl commercial is one that does not exaggerate about the car or its technology, it shows you what goes behind making such a pretentious car that is capable of much more than luxury.

Made for Mankind:

Mankind has always pushed the boundaries of everything. They have questioned everything, they are on their verge of learning everything new every day, and they push the boundaries of what’s possible. Acura’s 2014 MDX SUV commercial speaks about pushing boundaries and exploring newer territories with its extremely new MDX.

Comedians in Car:

Acura has teamed up with Jerry Seinfeld as well as director Barry Sonnenfeld for a round of comic commercial series that shows a car sales man selling cars with style.

“I sell cars, you sell you”

A pretty accurate statement and the commercial sticks to its point, Acura commercials are quite logical and BS free. Have a look at the following Acura Super Bowl commercial.

Hope you liked these commercials, stay tuned for more 🙂

Spectre – James Bond Movie and Cars

James Bond Spectre

The much anticipated James Bond movie featuring Daniel Craig is showing some signs of awesomeness. James Bond movies have been famous for plenty of reasons. But the most important one among them is the fancy cars that are elegant yet deadly. The 24th James Bond movie has finally been announced and carries the name Spectre.

The excitement has only begun. Daniel Craig had played the James Bond character in the Skyfall movie quite spectacularly. This new movie named spectre will cast Daniel Craig with his charisma all over again. More importantly, this time the James bond movie is going to have meaner machines that are definitely worth waiting for.

As rumors and official announcements have it, agent 007 will return with an all new Aston Martin Bond mobile. This was the right moment to present the all new custom Aston Martin DB10. Want to know more about this custom built brutal force?

Well, this car is specifically developed for the movie and only 10 of them are built. That’s right, only 10 units produced, but you can buy none of them yet. As Aston Martin has not come up with a new debutante, this limited production car is quite the “bespoke” product that not only boosts the name of the James Bond franchise; it also creates a unique identity about the brand Aston Martin in the minds of James Bond fans and car enthusiasts.

“In the same year that we celebrate our 50-year relationship with 007, it seems doubly fitting that today we unveiled this wonderful new sports car created especially for James Bond,” said Aston CEO Andy Palmer.

The new Aston is most likely going to be powered by a V12. Why? Well, one reason is because it is an ASTON, and it is built on one of the car’s older chassis.

With a long association with Aston Martin, and promoting them throughout the Bond movies like;

1964 Gold Finger:

This movie set the introduction of a new car for the forthcoming bond movies. The Aston martin DB5 started the relationship. With over 11 bond movies and around 50 successful years, this car was pretty famous.

Thunder ball:

The DB5 made a comeback in the 1965’s movie ‘THUNDERBALL’

The new car had a rear facing water cannon and boot stowed jetpack. Pretty cool right?

Golden Eye:

Those times when Bond was played by Pierce Brosnan, Style was the new factor and Brosnan was the new icon. The DB5 had returned and was shown chasing Onatopp’s Ferrari F355.

Die Another Day:

Pierce Brosnan had become pretty famous and he was the first James Bond character to drive two different Aston’s on to the screen in 2002. The film Die another day showed Brosnan driving the loud and omnipotent Aston Martin V12 Vanquish.

Casino Royale:

This was the time when Daniel Craig made his entry as the new James Bond character. The new movie “Casino Royale” also featured a new Aston Martin car, the DBS. In addition, the DB5 also made a special appearance. Casino Royale had featured 2 different Aston Martin Models.

Quantum of Solace:

The Aston Martin DBS made its appearance felt again in the movie Quantum of Solace. The return of the DBS was definitely exciting and watching it in a high-speed chase was terrific.

Skyfall:

This was the 23rd James Bond Film, DB5 returned again for its 6th appearance, this was one of the most eagerly anticipated Bond Films ever. Sadly, it was a letdown; there wasn’t anything as exciting as the previous Bond films. However, Aston Martin had successfully completed 50 glorious years and celebrated as one of the most iconic cars ever produced.

Spectre:

The latest movie is definitely raging up a lot of expectation over the Internet. It has definitely come as a whirlwind of excitement to know that the new Aston Martin DB10 is specially designed for this movie. Aston Martin claims that the DB10 gives a glimpse to the future design direction for the next generation of Aston Martins.

The new DB10’s panels are crafted from carbon fiber; let’s hope the car is as exciting as ever.

James Bond Spectre
James Bond Spectre

Fiat 500:

James Bond will also be careen through Rome in a Fiat 500. Although, there is no update about the specific Fiat 500 model, the Aston Martin is an official car in the forth coming Bond movie.

Daniel Craig’s Cars:

Of course, the James Bond star is going to whizz around in the latest Aston Martin car that might not be driven in the open road, Daniel Craig is a big car enthusiast himself.

He owns an Audi S6, a Lexus RX 350 and ironically, Daniel treated himself with an Aston Martin Vantage on his 45th birthday.

Hopefully the new James Bond Spectre movie is as exciting as the news about the DB10. The name is Bond…James Bond B)

GMC super bowl commercial- an overview

GMC super bowl commercial

General Motors (GM) formally the division of General Motors LLC, is an American automobile division of the American manufacturer General Motors that primarily focuses on trucks and utility vehicles.

Currently, GMC sells pickup as well as commercial trucks, buses, vans, military vehicles as well as sports utility vehicles that are marketed in North America in the Middle East by General Motors. GMC was GM’s second largest selling North American vehicle division in the year 2007 after Chevrolet and ahead of Pontiac.

GMC being one of the most popular brands in the U.S has definitely made its impression felt at the super bowl. Although there aren’t too many commercials that GMC has brought out in the recent past, these following commercials had cost a lot of money and in return, got a lot of viewers. Fair deal right?

Check out these few Ads from GMC that made it to the Super Bowl- Until we await the GMC super bowl commercial 2015

Yukon Hybrid:

Presenting the Yukon Hybrid in a Ad is a good advertising feat. But showing a figure pushing a rock up a mountain top is bizarre. The commercial has a runtime of a minute. But out of the entire minute, the dude just pushes the rock and a background voice just talks something that is hard to comprehend especially after looking at the weird looking dude trying to push the rock up the mountain. In my personal view, this commercial beats all odds and advertises something beyond my comprehension. They could have just had a concept where the Yukon pulls the rock up the mountain, which might have generated some interest.

Watch this GMC super bowl commercial once, or may be twice if you really want to make sense out of it.

 

Ideas:

This Ad promotes the 2007 GMC Yukon in a very idiosyncratic manner. Good ideas don’t necessarily come in the confines of an office cubicle (I wish my boss could have realized that) and they are some of the best ideas. This commercial explains how GMC’s Yukon is no ordinary sketch that was ideated in an office cubicle. It is made out of the best planned and the most efficient technology that is bound to last long. This car was engineered to the highest standard.

This is a good method to promote all the engineering innovations worldwide and put to best use. The GMC Yukon rolled out with more power, more fuel efficiency and details crafted with exact precision. This GMC super bowl commercial promotes GMC’s engineering beyond the drawing board. Have a look at the following commercial.

Sierra Denali:

High-end cruisers place luxurious and sophisticated cockpits on top of some of the most powerful marine engines. Likewise, GMC offers the proven, Duramax, diesel engine, beneath their most sophisticated and luxurious cabin in the 2015 Sierra Denali HD. This commercial indicates luxury in the form of a truck. With the latest engine offered with confidence and luxury that reminisces a high end luxury car, this commercial promotes luxury as well as power with a unique engineering combination.

This GMC super bowl commercial has no mundane stuff but, the actual portrayed in a rather sophisticated manner.

Black Friday:

Black Friday, the very same day where goods are bought with no intention of their purpose, shoppers save hundreds or may be thousands of dollars during a Black Friday sale. But all of this comes at a price. It starts with Insomnia, patience and a whole lot of impulsiveness.

GMC took a shot at this occasion and promoted its vehicles in a professional manner. Rather than standing in a long line at 3am just to get your hands on whatever your Washington’s lay in your pocket, you can just choose to walk into GMC’s showroom at anytime. The best part is that you save thousands. Have a look at this GMC super bowl commercial.

Pro Grade Protection:

Watch this battle between a GMC Sierra with Heavy Duty Winches.

Testing the sierra has gone to a whole new level. This GMC super bowl commercial shows Sierra’s pro grade engineering by stretching the truck in four opposing directions. Heavy duty dock yard winches along with solid steel chains are used to test the exact strength and durability. Performing the same once, twice or may be thrice is just something ordinary. But what if this same procedure is performed 46 times over two long days?

This video tortures and molests the Sierra to its worst. But, the precision in GMC’s engineering makes all these challenges seem like child’s play. Have a look at this ruthless video and how the Sierra manages to hold its ground as a winner.

Acadia:

Tough day at work and tougher night, especially if you are to attend an opera concert with your girl friend? The following GMC super bowl commercial highlights the very same situation and how our protagonist survives challenging tasks just to attend a boring concert. Well, that’s either the power of love, or the Acadia.

Jeep super bowl commercial 2015- an overview

Jeep super bowl commercial 2015

Jeep is a popular American automobile brand that is a division of Chrysler Group LLC. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Italian multinational automaker Fiat S.P.A. Chrysler Corporation had acquired Jeep along with the remaining assets of its (then) owner, American Motors.

Currently, Jeep offers Sports Utility Vehicles, Off-Road Vehicles as well as Pickup trucks.

Most Americans prefer Jeep for its off-road performance, durability and strength. Those factors weren’t just something that customers picked up in a single night. It took years of advertising and trust. But that sounds like a lot right?

Hence, Super Bowl, a platform that allows various companies to make their presence felt as strong as ever. The following super bowl commercials from Jeep were intended for the very same purpose, they have reached more than a million views and likes so far. So, sit back relax and grab a bucket of ice-cream or popcorn and enjoy these commercials- while we await the latest Jeep Super Bowl commercial 2015

Whole again:

Chrysler had a very silent and taciturn agenda for the Super Bowl XLVII. Without any teasers or any hint to the public and no celebrity involvement, this was a unique recipe brewing from Detroit.

The Chrysler team worked closely with United Service Organizations (USO) for a two minute tribute entitled “Whole Again” and was narrated by Oprah Winfrey to introduce the Jeep brand’s “Operation SAFE Return”“galvanize community support for service members and their families worldwide.”

“We wait. We hope. We pray. Until you’re home again.” — Oprah

This is how the commercial starts off. This commercial was one of the more popular ones like “The Year of the Farmer” that featured its Dodge Ram brand truck.

This heartfelt patriotic commercial that intones “When you are home..we are more than a family… we are a nation, we are a nation that is home, again”

This Jeep Super Bowl commercial pays tribute to America’s military families.  A heartwarming and emotional-tugging of some images of U.S military men and women meeting and embracing their family members as they arrive home safely from their overseas mission, just in time for the Super Bowl. Happiness, joy and a gamut of emotions is what made this commercial a hit.

Jeep also donated $ 1 million in funding and vehicles to the USO for programs which supported returning U.S military service members and their families. Chrysler has always been on top of the game when it came to donating funds to the USO.

 “For the past two years, we have used the largest television viewing audience to highlight the pride, the resilience and the determination that form an integral part of the American character,” said Sergio Marchionne, chairman and CEO of Chrysler, in a statement released after the advertisement aired.

In a statement released after “Whole Again” aired, Winfrey said: “It was an honor to lend my voice in support of those that serve us all.”

Do watch this commercial and enjoy those emotional moments( For sure we can expect a rocking Jeep Super Bowl commercial 2015 )

 

Restless:

This is yet another beautiful Ad by Jeep. Although it does not totally convince you into buying a Jeep, it shows you various possibilities that the generation of today might find passé. Being restless is not such a bad thing, you get to do more with your life, you get to explore much more into the further, and you get to experiment a lot with the joy of driving a Jeep.

Showing over scenes of urban cityscapes along with patches of unspoiled nature and a narration that talks about the experience of being wanderlust, the commercial takes you into an uncommon journey. Although, you might not want to watch this commercial time and time again, it does manage to leave behind an impression of sorts( just cant wait to see what model is to be promoted in the Jeep Super Bowl commercial 2015 )

Imported from Detroit:

A commercial endorsed by Eminem to advertise Chrysler 200, this renamed and re-skinned rental car of the masses does not have the emotional grasp. It seems quite a visually pleasing commercial of the night and Chrysler needs applause for that reason. But, it somehow lacks connect and appeal that is seen in various car commercials. It is quite subjective, have a look at the Jeep Super Bowl commercial and see if you feel the same.

America’s Import:

Chrysler 200 was formerly addressed as “Imported from Detroit” but now, the trend has changed and so has the baseline. The new marketing line says “America’s Import” with a new advertising campaign.

The Ad aims at competing with imports, it markets the reasons for you to “not” go overseas to get yourself a quality car. The commercial does a pretty good job by putting the brand back on the map.

Although the thought might lead you into believing that this brand challenges the import market, it somehow feels terribly dated and somehow fail to put across a rather pleasing message. Marketing is one part, but going aggressive on imports and making a decision for customers might not be such a good decision.

These few commercials had certainly created a buzz on the internet. Let’s hope Jeep/Chrysler bring out more innovative commercials.

Hyundai Super Bowl commercial 2015 – an overview

Hyundai Super Bowl commercial 2015

Its Hyundai (just like Sunday)

Hyundai is one of the most trusted automobile brands world wide, its car’s are affordable, safe and driver friendly. While competitors like Suzuki Honda, Toyota found unique ways of advertising their brands at the Super Bowl with their creative commercials, Hyundai found its leeway through a unique method of advertising. The commercials from Hyundai are fun to look at and definitely deserve to be watched. Here are a few Ads that made it to the Super Bowl and directly to the hearts of the viewers.

Watch these Ads and don’t forget to smile 🙂  ….while we await the Hyundai Super Bowl commercial 2015

8. Angry Bosses:

Yeah, they are annoying and they always find a reason to take you down. Conference rooms, lobby’s, parking lots, they take you  all the way to humiliation-station. And what do you do apart from cussing and hoping that your boss gets diarrhea? Well, you watch this Hyundai commercial. Although, it will not help you in any way, you can at least relate to the trauma of facing your bald-headed boss and find some solace.

This Hyundai Super Bowl commercial shows aggressive bosses from brands like Lexus and BMW showing their aggression towards Hyundai on winning an award for its top performing car named Genesis. Taking a direct hit at the competitors, this is a smartly designed commercial.

Have a look.

7. Sheep:

Part of a flock, scavenging around aimlessly? That is the condition of most car buyers, well at least most of them. This  31 second commercial from Hyundai is focused towards changing your mindset and changing your perspective from the obvious envy that you might have on your neighbor’s car (or wife) and settling down with something more unique and lively.

The Hyundai Elantra commercial makes a subtle comparison with most car buyers and relating them to sheep. Yet another Ad that you might not want to miss( until we check out the Hyundai Super Bowl commercial 2015 )

6. Excited:

Wouldn’t it exciting if you paid half or 1/4th of the amount on buying yourself a Mercedes or a Porsche (a new one pf course)

But, in reality that will never happen. But, would it make you feel good if you get all the same features (in fact better) and speed than a Mercedes or a Porsche by paying just 1/2 the price?

Presenting Hyundai’s Excited commercial that shows you the facts of the performance of the car along with the excitement of owning one( for sure we can expect a spectacular Hyundai Super Bowl commercial 2015 )

5. Don’t Tell:

Secrets are usually good, especially when they are kept from a husband/wife. The following Ad from Hyundai revolves around a couple and their kids. The husband does all possible things with his kids that he would avoid when the wife is around, he also tells the kids not to tell their mom. The wife is shown on the other half doing the same kinds of things and asking the kids not to tell the husband.

This Hyundai Santa Fe commercial is quite a family oriented commercial with a hint of humor, a hint of excitement and a whole lot of family bonding. This is again, a very good Ad that proved its worth at the 2013 Super Bowl( just cant wait to check out the Hyundai Super Bowl commercial 2015 )

4.  Stuck:

When you are driving on a smooth road, it does make you want to accelerate towards the front. It is not a bad thing to do so, especially when the traffic rules are followed carefully by everyone.

This commercial from Hyundai is something you will find mostly on Indian roads, Overtaking. Although, Indians risk everything to overtake, this commercial urges the driver to be ahead. This commercial was designed for Americans and fits in quite well. Had it been designed for India, it would have been the story of everybody’s life.

Anyways, watch this Hyundai Super Bowl commercial and enjoy overtaking on American roads.

 3. Team:

Bullying is not such a good thing, this Ad shows us exactly what happens when you are bullied and asked to bring a team.

A nice Hyundai Super Bowl commercial that goes against bullying and also advertises Hyundai’s Santa Fe. Most of the Hyundai car commercials have good amount of humor, excitement, and the zest that a viewer should expect out of a Super Bowl commercial.

Watch as a young guy assembles his team to challenge the bully’s team to a game of football. The young guy has some of the strongest and meanest looking dudes on his side. Guess who wins?

2. Success and Business:

Hyundai takes a funny detour with the concept of death. A guy and his boss (dad) are shown driving on an empty road, the boss tells his son that success and business comes down to one word and suddenly closes his eyes. The baffled guy is clueless and so, he revs the car and applies a sudden brake. The boss who had his seat belt on takes on the jerks directly to his heart, like he was getting a jot of life. To the driver’s joy, the boss (dad) opens his eyes and continues with the success and business line. This is a great way to promote the 348 HP producing Genesis from Hyundai ( for sure we can expect a more trendy model sported in the Hyundai Super Bowl commercial 2015 )

1. Dad’s are Awesome:

Safety is the utmost priority for a dad. The dad inflicts damage but does not allow his child to get hurt. The very same concept is applied to the all new 2015 Hyundai Genesis. Being tagged as the safest car on earth, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis is one of the Best cars ever made and has caught the attention of various competitors. A must watch commercial, watch and enjoy. 🙂

Nissan super bowl commercial 2015 – an overview

Nissan Super Bowl commercial

Japanese car manufacturer Nissan Motor Company (shortened to Nissan) is a multinational automobile manufacturer that is headquartered in Nishi-Ku, Yokohama, Japan. The Renault-Nissan alliance partnership between Nissan and Renault since 1999, in which Renault holds a 43.4% voting stake in Nissan. Nissan motor sells its cars under the Nissan, Infiniti, Datsun and Nismo brands.

Being the 6th largest automaker in the world, Nissan beats Toyota, GM, Volkswagen Group, Hyundai Motor Group as well as Ford. Taken together, the Renault-Nissan Alliance would be the world’s fourth largest automaker. Nissan has not let its opportunity to advertise its brand at the Super Bowl just drive by. There are plenty of efforts that Nissan has taken to promote its brand like no other. A few commercials have been the most preferred commercials among all the others played at Super Bowl.

Here are a few top commercials from Nissan that made it to the Super Bowl( While we await the Nissan Super Bowl commercial 2015 )

Pigeons:

What’s more annoying than a drive during a rainy day when there is slush on the road? Pigeon Poop 😀

This Nissan Super Bowl commercial shows a pigeon commando giving instructions to a battalion of pigeons to fly around the city and leave their poop-marks all over. As a part of their sinister plan, they spot a car wash and a guy who just gets his Nissan car washed. The aggressive pigeons make the sky their battle ground and follow the car to leave behind their marks.

The messy plan gets real fun to watch, finally the last pigeon flying tries to get close but he collides against the driver’s garage door. The music selection as well as the visual portrayal depicts fun and excitement.  This 1997 Ad is one of the finest from Nissan. Do watch and enjoy.

300 ZX:

Barbie and Ken make a cute couple, but that’s old school. This commercial takes the scene from Toy world and adds a twist to it. A rough and tough Gi-Joe looking figurine comes to life, finds his way through various objects and obstacles with a trusted Nissan car toy. He drives along various places and finally reaches Barbie’s house, honks and offers Barbie a drive. Barbie agrees, leaving Ken wondering aimlessly. This is a cool commercial that might have seemed risky, but worked pretty well for Nissan. This commercial was played in the 1990’s Super Bowl. Watch this commercial and enjoy the world of Toys ( just cant wait to check out the Nissan Super Bowl commercial 2015 )

Twin- Turbo:

Watching an old film might make you giggle, the delivery of dialogues, the stunts, the pixilated video quality and what not. The Nissan 300 ZX Twin Turbo Ad was an uber-cool commercial (then). A guy narrates his story of being chased by a superbike that incessantly follows the 300 ZX but fails to catch up, and then he is chased down by a formula series car that also fails to catch up with the 300 ZX.  Finally, a plane is sent to take him down. But as expected, the Twin Turbo technology gets the Nissan way ahead.

At first glance, It seemed like an olden day commercial that was intended only to sell the car. The Twin-Turbo technology couldn’t have been advertised better. Those days, such action scenes in movies were a major influence. A sensible Ad for those days, but seems pretty chuckle some for the current trend( and ofcourse we can expect a rocking Nissan Super Bowl commercial 2015 )

Watch and enjoy 🙂

Polar Bear:

Global Warming is taking a big toll on humans, a huge chunk at a time. We are not the only ones suffering; all living things are equally facing the perils. This Nissan Super Bowl commercial shows a polar bear driven from its territory into the suburbs where the polar bear feels left out. The bear wanders around scavenging for food and shelter and seems to suffer the harsh consequences of traffic and humans. The bear wanders into a residential street where a guy is about to enter his Nissan Leaf. The Polar Bear moves towards the guy and gives him a hug as a part of nature’s appreciation for using an electric car.

A deep and thoughtful meaning involved behind this commercial. Seems pretty accurate and conveys a green message, “Innovation for the planet, Innovation for all”

Kayaking XTerra:

The rules of kayaking are simple enough as kayaking goes; this commercial shows a guy who plunges into freezing water with his kayak, although you might think that he is doing it wrong, he proves everyone wrong. He does it pretty well, and wins an award too. The X Terra from Nissan Motor Transport utility vehicle of the year 2006, proves its X factor in such a way. It also asks its viewers to visit showusyourx.com. Not the best commercial, but watchable until we set our eyes on the Nissan Super Bowl commercial 2015

Juke:

Race between a Nissan Juke and a Hot bikini model? Win or lose, it doesn’t matter. Speed is totally subjective. The Nissan and the model take off, obviously the Nissan comes first and the model, well the starving model drinks a little juice. Nissan promoted the Juke along with its partner, SI Swimsuit 2011.

Decent commercial, did not really make a lot of sense but, then again most Ads fail to do so. Watch this commercial and see if it makes any sense 🙂

Hope you enjoyed these commercials?  Stay tuned for more 🙂
