Ha ha, in the middle picture, I think you are implying the return of the Mercury Lynx!

What's the Cd of this new model?

I love that people are asking about the Cd of new vehicles (even if it's "just" an ecomodder member").

Eventually, more members of the general public will learn/understand about the impact of drag on efficiency and start asking about it. That'll ratchet up the competition among automakers to out-do each other. We're already starting to see that, and not just in the "eco" category.

To answer your question...

Seems like the stock Fiesta 2-door has an unimpressive Cd of .33 . The European "Econetic" version improves on that, but the figure isn't given. Source: Ford Fiesta ECOnetic (2009) with pictures and wallpapers

We want low drag, we want low drag, we want low drag, we want low drag...:D:thumbup::p

The iQ Cd of 0.299 is looking pretty good, then! The new Insight is 0.28, and the new Prius is 0.25 -- sweeet!

The iQ is .299? That's pretty nuts.

If I remember correctly, yes -- and the Yaris is 0.29, as well. Yup, here's a page that says this (near the bottom):
