Mercedes-Benz CLA Video Commercial Cat

I’m sure you all remember the famous chicken commercial for Mercedes’ Magic Body Control, right? You know, the hypnotizing one where they used chicken head tracking to make us watch chickens for hours (literally, because here are 10 hours of it). Anyway, looks like the Germans are back, this time with a cat, whose purpose is to highlight how aerodynamic the amazing new CLA is. Not as catchy as the first one, but still really funny. Enjoy!

Whether you like the commercial or not, that’s you’re business, but don’t forget that Mercedes is not just bragging, because the CLA really is the most aerodynamic vehicle currently in production, with a drag coefficient of just 0.23 (it beated the Tesla Model S, which had 0.24). Also, the CLA 180 BlueEFFICIENCY edition has an even better coefficient, just 0.22, possible thanks to lower A-pillars and aerodynamic improvements made to other parts, like the mirror housings or the rear diffuser. Available since September 2013, the CLA is an amazing car and it was extremely well received on all major markets, German officials calling it the best product launch they had in the last 20 years.
