Prius III has virtually the same CdA as the Prius II

Kind of funny, but I was just updating my CdA list (and the wiki) and calculated the numbers for the new 2010 Prius. It got a little shorter, but a bit wider. Combined with the Cd drop, it comes out a TINY bit worse than the 04-09 Prius.

04-09 Prius CdA = 5.83
10 Prius CdA = 5.84

Of course, I'm using an estimated frontal area so it could really go either way. Just thought I'd share.

Interesting reminder that Cd alone isn't the whole picture. Nice.

I assume you meant 10 Prius, not 01 Prius...
