Lincoln is No.1 for a fourth straight week on iSpot.tv’s list of the most-watched car commercials – the ads that have tallied the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
The top-ranked ad for the week of March 2 features actor Matthew McConaughey in the solitary comfort of a ’20 Aviator SUV.
The second-place spot urges viewers to imagine themselves in a new Toyota and touts special leasing deals or $1,500 rebates for the ’20 Corolla.
Chevrolet takes third place with a commercial spotlighting the Silverado HD and its “best-in-class camera technology and larger, more functional beds than any competitor.” During Truck Month, Chevy customers can get zero-percent financing for 72 months plus a $500 cash allowance.
In its fourth-place spot, Lexus invites viewers to be their guest and feel at home – because although the car-buying process may start with an invitation, “it becomes an experience.”
Rounding out the ranking is an Infiniti ad in which a group of friends ski down a mountain before hitting the road to surf in the ocean, all with some help from the ’20 QX50. This spot has the best iSpot Attention Index (157) in the ranking, getting 57% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
