New Mercedes E-Class Has Industry’s Lowest Coefficient of Drag

Interesting info SVOBoy, it's good to hear that Mercedes has been coming out with more fuel efficient models. I have heard of BlueTec Mercedes but still don't know much about it. My dad will be in the running for a new vehicle in the next year or so, as he'd really like to get rid of his gas guzzling SUV, I'll have to have him look around at the BlueTec stuff, as well as the new Jetta TDI.
