20 Of The Best Car Print Ads

Advertising is an integral part of our everyday lives. And whilst some of it is incessant and annoying, others are pure genius. Perhaps worthy of being labelled as art, if it weren’t for the business side of things.

Here at Carhoots, we’ve come together with 20 top car print adverts you can find; whether they’re funny, ingenious, or eye-catching.

20) Mazda BT-50 – The Farm

This ad manages to align themselves with a large portion of their target audience in style. Doesn’t it look blissful?


19) Land Rover – Eyeballs

This print ad expresses the kind of adventure you can have with a Land Rover. Although for some, this may be a tad too much.


18) Ford – Ford Service and Tires

Conquer the ice, they say? There’s no doubt this is impressive advertising, and is pretty striking; but realism obviously wasn’t their focus. But hey, this is the world advertising; who said any of it had to be true?!


17) Fiat 500 – Emissions

What’s better than animals in advertisements? Animals driving cars in advertisements. Fiat go one better, by showing a Panda driving and crashing a Fiat 500.


16) Mini – Rollercoaster

What’s more fun than a rollercoaster? Driving a Mini Cooper, of course.


15) Land Rover Discovery 4 – Goggles

Man and car as one, in places man cannot survive. That’s what the Land Rover Discovery is all about, right? LAND-ROVER-Goggles

14)  Smart – Pollution:

More of a global warming advert than anything, but it does manage to clearly show how much difference driving a Smart car could make.smart_polluting2

13) MG – Your Mother Wouldn’t Like It:

Sex sells, but who’s buying? Lots of people, after seeing this advert.


12) Mini – Halloween:

A nifty ad playing with the Mini’s playful stereotype, turning it quite literally on it’s head. Scary stuff.


11) Plymouth Neon – Hi:

What a cute little car. It’s saying hi! Why shouldn’t I buy it?


10) Ford Fusion – Urban Activity Vehicle:

A very clever idea that certainly pays off; access to the city in the palm of your hands.


9) Volkswagen Beetle – Lemon:

The VW Beetle had a lot of good ads, and this is one that sold the car in droves. Think small, don’t focus on luxury; focus on lemons.volkswagen_lemon_hires1

8) Jeep – Earth Day:

A clever take on the Earth Day, managing to align the 4×4 Jeep with a concept that are usually opposed. I’m also rather fond of the minimalist design.


7) Audi A1 – A Big Idea Condensed:

A clever design exploring everything the A1 has to offer. No arguments there.audi_a1_idea_condensed4

6) Volkswagen Jetta – Beach:

If only this one were true. A clever take on the Jetta, showing there’s fun for all the family. Although I’m not sure this would meet safety regulations, being made of sand and all.

5) Volvo Turbo Wagon:

An oldie, but a goody.  Cargo space and power; what more do you need?


4) Ford – Bluetooth v Headphones:

Managing to turn a daily nuisance in the life of many into an amusing advert, and then offer a solution, is a smart move from Ford. Mine always end up in the Double overhand knot, whatever I do.


3) Porsche – Nobody’s Perfect:

Simplicity is the key to advertising. And the LeMans results spoke for themselves in Porsche’s ad, alongside a little sarcastic self-depreciating humor. Classy.


2) Daihatsu Hijet MPV:

The truth hurts. No many how glamorous a Lamborghini may be, this situation is an impossibility.


1) Audi – Can’t Stop Driving:

Despite the fact this ad suggests Audi are the chosen car for criminals, it is brilliant. It takes a minute for the message to sink in, and highlights how much fun this guy must be having to leave his mates in the midst of a heist. And not a car in sight. Genius.
