Toyota owns the top two spots on iSpot.tv’s latest ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads gathering the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
In the first-place ad for the week of April 1, two lovebirds use the Toyota RAV4 to embark on a series of adventures to prolong their special time together. The No.2 commercial, also from Toyota, features another couple, this time using the RAV4 Hybrid to visit family members.
A Subaru family takes a drive down memory lane in the third-place spot that also has the best iSpot Attention Index (144) in the ranking, getting 44% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
Subaru also owns the fifth-place ad, promoting the ’19 Forester’s DriverFocus Alert system, which can help put the parents of teen drivers at ease.
In fourth place, Chevrolet explains why the Silverado is the “official truck of calloused hands” and more, and lets viewers know about available discounts.
