With over 433 million impressions, Nissan takes first place in iSpot.tv’s ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads getting the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.

The No.1 commercial for the week of Sept. 2 is a cinematic spot promoting the ’20 Nissan Versa, which comes with Intelligent Mobility features such as blindspot warning.

Chevrolet owns two places, second and fifth, on the ranking. In its No.2 ad, Chevy thanks all the “real people” who voted for the company in a J.D. Power survey. Its fifth-place spot highlights an optional technology package available in the ’20 Silverado that, among other things, can make a trailer appear to be invisible from the driver’s point of view.

Hyundai’s third-place commercial introduces the Palisade, which comes equipped with Lane Keeping Assist and Blind View Monitor capabilities. This ad has the best iSpot Attention Index (149) in the ranking, getting 49% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).

Meanwhile, fourth place goes to Jeep’s poetic spot proclaiming the seats in its Gladiator model are reserved for “the restless…those that can hardly sit still…who need to move, and roar and ride – up, down, over.”
