Those who know Ironman Jan Frodeno describe him as a perfectionist who looks for the tiniest technical advantage that could save him time. And in the complex triathlon world it is the cycling leg that is by far the most dependent on optimum technique – in particular on the aerodynamics of the cyclist and their bicycle. Dr Teddy Woll has also made this one of his main missions. However, the Head of Aerodynamics at Mercedes-Benz is predominantly concerned about mobility that is as efficient as possible rather than world records or victories. A meeting in the state-of-the-art wind tunnel at Mercedes-Benz in Sindelfingen.

The new Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupé (2019) is not only the most emotional vehicle in its class, it is also highly intelligent: From MBUX Interior Assist, which recognises operational demands from gestures and equips the interior with intelligence, through augmented reality for navigation and understanding indirect voice commands to the ENERGIZING COACH that provides individual fitness recommendations, the new CLA offers an array of clever solutions. There are also ingenious details when it comes to the aerodynamics and new functions for the Intelligent Drive driving assistance package. The design underlines the coupé character with its stretched form and design elements such as the bonnet with powerdomes or the rear licence plate which has been moved down. As such it does justice to its predecessor’s status as a design icon.
