Holiday themes dominate iSpot.tv’s list of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads garnering the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
In the No.1 spot for the week of Dec. 3, a Toyota spokesperson lets viewers know about great seasonal deals on models including the Tacoma, RAV4 and Camry.
The holiday bells continue to jingle in the second-place spot from Chevrolet that features real employees and their families. The company currently is extending its employee discount to all qualified buyers.
A young woman navigates her Lincoln home for the holidays in the third-place commercial, which pulls at the heartstrings thanks to the addition of a devoted dog awaiting his owner’s return.
In fourth place is GMC’s take on Christmas night, with each member of a family snuggling up to their most beloved gift. The dad is camped out in the bed of his brand new Sierra pickup, sleeping like a baby. During the Denali Season to Upgrade event, GMC is offering special savings on select models.
A spot for the ’18 Jaguar F-PACE rounds out the top five. This commercial has the best iSpot Attention Index (131) in the ranking, getting 31% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
