The Jaguar E, at Cd=0.44, is surprising. That model sure had my eyeballs fooled. It must be all that extra surface area.

*Too much air goes under the car
*The belly isn't that smooth.
*The glass isn't flush at all.
*The roofline is too steep.

The windshield is too steep, and the wheels are very exposed, as well.

WOW, them caverns that house the wheels make the air whirlpool many times over. Bet that covering the full space would improve by lots, and then the belly!
Belly/engine is actually looking up and catching air sort of like a boats front hull.

AERO list needs to be improved with newer vehicles, include some more modded autos. Nice list to have and quite useful!

The Cd of a Scion xB is 0.32? Pardon me if I don't believe that the brick of bricks has a Cd under 0.45.

The only good thing I can say is that it is a small brick.
