1995+ Metro sedan coefficient of drag: .32

Just posting this as an FYI...

akcapeco forwarded me this link - one of the few sources of apparently "official" looking coefficient of drag numbers for the vehicle: Chevrolet GEO Metro LSi (1995)

1995 CHEVROLET GEO METRO LSI SEDAN: .32

Somewhat close to the .34 listed here: The Mayfield Company Homepage - Geo Vehicle Drag Data - though this page doesn't specify sedan or hatchback.

Good to know. I have the metros on the bottom of my CdA list, but never had the drag coefficients for the different body styles so they never got added to the top of the list and ranked with the other vehicles. A shame because so many here drive the car.

BTW, that puts its CdA at 6.47. A bit high for such a small vehicle.
