Thumbs up best aero family rides

hey guys...

wondering what some of the best family cars in terms of aerodynamics directly from the factory? I'm thinking at least two row seating with rear space for a big dog.

Thanks

Prius with .25 Cd (independently tested at .30), and Elantra with .28 Cd come to mind. 2010 M-B E class coupe claims .24. There's lots of company in the .28 Cd area.

Don't forget this CdA thread.

thanks, man. you've got some pretty great mileage goin' on, there. niice. i, unfortunately went on a vacation and had some weird reciept/accidently getting free gas type stuff happened. needless to say, i've been out of the digitized loop gas mileage-wise.
