For the market launch of the T-Cross, Volkswagen is embarking on a campaign for its latest SUV in Europe.
The integrated 360° campaign includes a TV spot, printed and billboard advertisements as well as digital and social media content. The campaign face and testimonial of the T-Cross is Cara Delevingne. The claim #MoreThan1Thing describes the versatility of both the vehicle and its testimonial.
For Jürgen Stackmann, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen brand responsible for Sales, Marketing and After-Sales, the 26- year-old Briton with her many and varied professions and passions is the ideal choice: “Cara Delevingne and the T-Cross are a perfect match: both are multi-faceted all-rounders – young, cool and versatile. Cara is the personification of the claim that we have developed for the T-Cross– ‘More than one thing‘. I am very pleased about this cooperation.“
Cara Delevingne has been among the best-known models for almost a decade and has also enjoyed success as a singer, actress, activist and businesswoman.
In Volkswagen’s new campaign, her versatility makes the T-Cross her ideal companion and she presents the multi-faceted nature of the vehicle in a creative and lively way.
For the first time Volkswagen will advertise on the walkway bridge at the Westfield Shopping Centre at Stratford City, with an innovative and striking lenticular display that is sure to catch the attention of visitors as another, UK-specific facet of the campaign. The display, at the shopping centre’s prominent walkway, appears to move as visitors to Westfield walk past.
Katie Jones, Volkswagen UK Communications Manager, explained: “The all-new T-Cross is a really appealing compact SUV, and further broadens the scope of our SUV range with a fifth family member. The T-Cross is a particularly flexible vehicle which will fit many different lifestyles, despite being the smallest SUV in our family.
“There’s no better way of demonstrating a flexible, innovative small SUV in one of the UK’s fastest-growing car segments than with an equally innovative, moving display at one of the UK’s busiest retail hotspots. Combined with the other elements of the campaign, it’s sure to turn heads.”
Cara Delevingne says about the T-Cross: “I think the T-Cross reflects me and my personality in the way that it’s fun, it’s young, it’s diverse, it’s versatile, it can go from one thing to another as quick as you need it to go.”
