With no less than seven different models that are the world champions in their respective car segments when it comes to aerodynamic efficiency, we're guessing it's safe to say that the Stuttgart manufacturer is a world leader from this point of view.
Obviously, the loved by many and hated by some G-Class is probably not even on the same scale with the rest of the range, but the Graz-made is a record-breaker in other areas, where its 0.54 drag coefficient doesn't matter as much.

The most aerodynamic car in the current Mercedes-Benz line-up is coincidentally the most aerodynamic series-production vehicle in the world. The Blue Efficiency version of the CLA has an unbelievable Cd value of 0.22, a value that betters any other car without compromising on its coupe-like looks.

The second most aerodynamic car in the German's range is also the second most slippery car in the world, the Cd value of 0.24 achieved by the E-Class coupe beating even the Toyota Prius'.

Apart from these two models, there are five other record-breaking cars in the Mercedes-Benz range, each of them being the most aerodynamic in their respective segments. Whether you're driving an A-Class, B-Class, E-Class, M-Class or and SL, you can rest assured that there's no other competing model that's more slippery than yours.
