The Super Bowl is the MainStage for the most innovative and creative automobile commercials ever! While there were more than a handful of auto contenders using big ad dollars and star power to promote their brands, we’ve got the top five Super Bowl car commercials worth watching again and again and has audiences talking below!
Acura wants the world to know that “Precision Crafted Performance” is back.

Crank up the volume and check out the loudest Super Bowl car commercial in the bunch below!
The terms “high-speed chase” and “Prius” aren’t exactly synonymous with each other, so Toyota challenged a few perceptions with its adventurous 90-second spot that has people wondering if a Prius really can outrun a fleet of cop cars. (Spoiler alert: A Prius really can’t outrun a cop car but this commercial spot does make it look like a fun challenge.)
Hyundai made a statement in its first Super Bowl as the NFL’s automotive sponsor with two in-game ads along with two more spots that ran during the pre-game show and just before kickoff. The brand called on comedian Kevin Hart and actor Ryan Reynolds to anchor two of the spots. The star power packed in both commercials make Hyundai a huge winner among viewers (and even has comedian Kevin Hart campaigning fans to make it the highest viewed Super bowl spot ever!)
Mini didn’t run from labels in its celebrity-infused spot starring the Clubman. In fact, it tackled them head-on like celebs who read mean tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Check out what celebs like Serena Williams and T. Pain had to say about their Mini below!
