The most popular videos on What Car?’s YouTube channel over the last month

Top 10 most popular videos on What Car’s YouTube channel

There has been a noticeable increase in new car reveals and new car launches recently, which means there is more new metal for us to film. While our in-depth reviews of established big-sellers provide a big portion of our viewing figures over the year, it’s typically the shiny new stuff that has a more immediate impact.

There’s a few examples of that this month. Leading the way is the Honda HR-V. Honda offered us the chance to film the car in a studio, and the resulting eight-minute walkaround video is one of our most successful videos of the year. Interestingly, it seems to have brought in a lot of views from Southeast Asia, where our audience is normally fairly limited. The fact it’s a new SUV, and a hybrid, also meant there was a good chance it would be popular anyway. Honda also gave the opportunity to other media outlets to film the car in the same location – but we made sure we were the first to get our video out, and it was clearly worth the effort.

The other big success has been the Hyundai Ioniq 5 first drive. It was one of those opportunities where we were only allowed a very limited time with the car but putting in the effort to film it and then turn it around quickly was clearly worth the effort. Similarly, another early first drive was successful and features in the top 10 – the Skoda Enyaq.
