Honda takes first place in iSpot.tv’s latest ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials — the ads that have tallied the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
In its top-ranked spot for the week of Oct. 12, Honda declares its vehicles, despite their comfort and attention to detail, are not delicate machines — and models including the Pilot, Passport and Ridgeline pack a punch of rugged performance. Notably, this ad performed 8% better than the norm for auto ads when it came to holding viewer attention.
Lincoln’s ad for the ’20 Corsair featuring singer-songwriter Cas Haley slips to second place from first last time, while Nissan takes third place with a commercial for the ’20 Altima which, the company suggests, has available features that will make you eager to go for a ride even when you don’t really need to.
The last two spots on the ranking come from Chevrolet. The fourth-place ad highlights various models designed to make “life’s journey just better.” And the No.5 commercial focuses on how the ’21 Trailblazer can make the middle of nowhere appear alluring for people seeking adventure.
