I'd like to expand it to other brands (I'm most familiar with Toyota) and I would like you guy's help for that. Here is what I have so far.

You can see I sorted it by CdA. The height and width are in inches and frontal are is in square feet (W * H * .84). The formula used for CdA is Frontal Area * Cd.

Thanks, I could not find my Frontal Area anywhere. But I guess I could have just figured it out, but I wanted a number from the Manufacturer.
