“Ultimate Control,” a long-running Lincoln ad featuring Matthew McConaughey, controls first place in iSpot.tv’s ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads that have racked up the most impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
The Lincoln commercial, which has been the top-ranked ad several times this year, collected nearly 289 million TV ad impressions during the week of Feb. 18. The spot emphasizes the level of control the ’19 Nautilus can give drivers with its Co-Pilot360 technology and lane-keeping system.
Toyota snags two spots in the latest ranking. In second place (down from first last week), a group of friends uses the ’19 RAV4 to help spice things up by challenging their taste buds at multiple restaurants, while Toyota’s fourth-place ad focuses on a couple intent on stretching out their special time together.
Buick’s latest lineup that includes the Encore and Envision is highlighted at No.3, while Hyundai’s fifth-place spot promotes a sales event during which customers can save on models such as the Kona, recently named the 2019 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
