Extracts from this document...


Jessica Scales Examine how the Renault Laguna advertisement appeals to its target audience Advertising tries to catch a reader's eye to get them to read the advert and then go out and buy the product advertised. An advertisement in a magazine needs to catch the eye as most people just skim or flick through, so an advert needs bright colours and bold writing. Car advertisers have to face certain drawbacks with cars such as the expense of the car and all the hidden charges that are not thought of until after the purchase of the car. Expenses could include tax or insurance. Car retailers try to overcome this problem by offering free insurance for a period of time. Maintenance could also be a problem.

It talks about the "remarkable" car and that you will experience certain things while driving the car. Also it talks about the pollution and how much it doesn't pollute the area. Although the advert is eye catching it does not show the minor points of buying the car. It does not give enough information for you to actually want to go and buy the Renault Laguna straight away as it does not show certain things such as the interior, seats, the front of the car and the boot space(which people who are disabled look out for) which is what people go on when they buy a car. Also it does not give enough vital information to know certain things about the car; you would either have to phone the company or go into a showroom and ask which can be time consuming. 1 ...read more.
