Aviator Spot Still No.1 Among Most-Seen Auto Ads

The top commercial for the week of Nov. 4, featuring Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey, has racked up more than 366.6 million TV ad impressions.

For the sixth time in the past eight weeks, a spot for the ’20 Lincoln Aviator is No.1 on iSpot.tv’s list of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads that have generated the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.

The top commercial for the week of Nov. 4, featuring Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey, has racked up more than 366.6 million TV ad impressions.

Subaru also holds its position from last week, taking second place with a spot for the ’19 Ascent. This ad has the best iSpot Attention Index (152) in the ranking, getting 52% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).

Honda’s third-place commercial reminds viewers that collisions can affect more than just the people directly involved, which is why it makes “vehicles that can brake before you do.” 

In the No.4 spot from Nissan, a man drives his ’20 Altima to answer a friend’s text message in person. With available features such as remote start, variable-compression turbocharged engine and lane-departure warning, the model has tech that “helps you be there.” 

Finally, GMC already is in the holiday spirit with an ad showing a husband surprising his wife with his-and-hers Acadia and Sierra models. Right now, qualified customers can get special lease options on the ’19 Acadia SLE-1 or the ’19 Terrain SLE.
