A Honda spot asks questions and viewers answer by making it the most-viewed automotive commercial in iSpot.tv’s latest ranking of ads with the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
Honda’s first-place ad for the week of Sept. 24 poses questions such as “Why not versatile?” and “Why not make it rugged?” The company’s CR-V, HR-V and Pilot SUV models, an announcer suggests, indeed are versatile, rugged and more.
Lincoln’s ad for the ’19 MKC is on the chart again, this time at No. 2. This commercial promotes the integrated Waze Navigation system that helps connect “the world inside with the world outside.”
An enduring ad for the ES series from Lexus snags third place, down from first last time. The spot plays out as a sort of mock confession, telling viewers the model is stolen “from everything we’ve ever mastered.”
At No. 4 is an upbeat spot from Cadillac featuring the song “Fire” by Barns Courtney. Positive reviews from Kelley Blue Book and Car and Driver are overlaid on action shots of the ’18 XT5. This commercial had the best iSpot Attention Index (130) in the ranking, getting 30% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
Ram rounds out the chart with its “Power Days” ad that lets people know great deals are available on its trucks, including the Ram 1500 Big Horn.
