Castaway couple launch new Suzuki!

Suzuki S-cape in your S-Cross

S-Cape in your S-Cross


Create the ‘big reveal’ in a different way was the requirement for the launch of the new Suzuki S-Cross crossover SUV. The “Ta-da!” moment happens when castaway couple Ben and Natalie spring open a massive crate washed up with them on a deserted island.


The television campaign, launched with a 15 sec teaser, was followed by a 30 sec version that highlights the car’s performance and techno inclusions.


“S-Cape in your S-Cross” is the campaign’s caption and was devised as a way of locking this exciting new brand into the escape machine category.


The campaign also featured integrated components online, in the press and at point of sale. The online pre-launch promotion sparked excitement amongst thousands of entrants. The prize was a sneak preview day for 7 winners at the Mt Cotton Driver Training Centre.
