Super Bowl Car Commercials, Celebrities Turned Viewers Into Sunday Drivers

By Barry Janoff

February 10, 2016: Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos may have won the game, but Mini and Acura NSX won the road in driving consumer interest.

Mini, which hit Super Bowl 50 with its "Defy Labels" commercial starring, among others, Serena Williams, Abby Wambach, Randy Johnson (pictured right), Harvey Keitel, T-Pain and Tony Hawk, led all brands in traffic analysis with a 100% increase over average Sunday traffic levels to its make and model pages on Edmunds.com.

Acura (+38%) came in second, followed by Fiat-Chrysler (Jeep) and Buick (+25% each) and Audi (+15%), which aired a spot, "Commander" (pictured below, with music from David Bowie's "Starman"), according to Edmunds' annual Super Bowl study.

At the model level, Acura NSX (+661%) saw the largest traffic spike of any Super Bowl-advertised vehicle on Edmunds.com, followed by Buick Cascada (+532%), Audi R8 (+473%) and the Mini Clubman (+291%).

Hyundai did not make the Top Five in either list despite airing ads during the game.

According to Edmunds, lifts are determined by comparing Super Bowl Sunday traffic to average Sunday mobile and desktop traffic to the make and model pages on Edmunds.com. Only brands and models that advertised during CBS' Super Bowl 50 telecast were included in this analysis.

"Once again, the Super Bowl proved to have a huge impact with viewers, who immediately turned to their computers and mobile devices to learn more about these vehicles and brands," Jessica Caldwell, director of industry analysis for Edmunds.com, said in a statement.

Companies paid upward of $5 million for a 30-second spot during the broadcast of Super Bowl 50 on CBS, according to industry analysts.

The only truck advertised during the game this year was the Honda Ridgeline, which, according to Edmunds, "took advantage of the spotlight with a full-day spike of 275% (good for fifth place) and an immediate surge of 3,920%" immediately after its commercial, "A New Truck to Love" (which featured sheep "singing" a cover of Queen's "Somebody to Love").

According to Edmunds, both Mini and NSX also saw large traffic surges in the minutes after their respective ads aired.

Acura NSX traffic on Edmunds surged 7,836% immediately after its ad, "What He Said" (with a soundtrack from Van Halen) aired in the second quarter. Mini traffic peaked at 962% of its typical Sunday levels immediately after its ad aired in the third quarter.

Toyota Prius delivered a strong ROI, especially "considering its reputation as a popular and established model for shoppers" on Edmunds.com. Prius traffic soared 579% in the moments after its ad, "The Longest Chase," aired in the second quarter, before settling at a full-day increase of a 78%.

Edmunds said its Super Bowl traffic analysis is "based on unique mobile and desktop traffic to the make and model pages on Edmunds.com. Lifts are determined by comparing yesterday's traffic to average Sunday traffic levels on the site."

"The game especially delivers as a compelling platform to spark interest in the most exciting vehicles in a brand's lineup."

New and lesser-known vehicles that advertise during the Super Bowl are more likely to see the largest traffic increases on Edmunds because they generally start with a lower average baseline, according to the company.

"The game especially delivers as a compelling platform to spark interest in the most exciting vehicles in a brand's lineup. That's why it's not surprising that attractive and sporty cars like the NSX, R8 and Cascada emerged with the biggest lifts on our site," said Caldwell.
