For a third straight week, Nissan leads iSpot.tv’s ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads collecting the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
In Nissan’s No.1 commercial for the week of June 29, actress Brie Larson zooms through a city, showing off the ’20 Sentra’s rear automatic braking and Nissan Intelligent Mobility. This spot has the best iSpot Attention Score in the ranking (94.35) and recorded 26% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad.
Jeep takes second place with a spot that reminds us to look at the big picture and realize “just how amazing freedom really is.” During Jeep’s Fourth of July Sales Event (which extends beyond the holiday with an Aug. 3 deadline for customers to take retail delivery), the brand is offering zero-percent financing for 72 months, plus no monthly payments for 90 days, on select models.
At No.3, Subaru takes on distracted driving with “sensors that alert you when your eyes are off the road” – an especially comforting feature for the parents of teen drivers, as the ad points out.
Fourth place goes to a Honda commercial that shows how its lineup of all-wheel-drive vehicles is perfect for any situation, from morning coffee runs to family campouts – even in tricky terrain.
Kia rounds out the ranking with a spot urging people to “reclaim the road trip” because “it might be a while before we’ll see America from 35,000 feet.”
The ad says well-qualified buyers can trade up to a Kia with interest-free financing for 72 months and up to $1,500 trade-assist cash.
