Marketers can change how consumers look at a certain brand if they can find ways to satisfy customers not only by meeting needs, wants, and demands but also to assert the brand on culture, socialization process, lifestyle, consumer's personality and beliefs.

The brand plays a very important role which is the upper level image of every Jaguar Land Rover customer’s self  -concept.
