The aerodynamic characteristics directly affect the stability, driving characteristics, safety, operation, and oil consumption of automobile. This paper will describe aerodynamic performance of sedan car by wind tunnel approach. The aerodynamic drag force and pressure distribution at longitudinal section acting over the car body is determine by conducting the wind tunnel test. The experimental investigations will be performed on an open circuit section type wind tunnel having 30 cm × 30 cm ×100 cm test section , on a geometrically similar ,reduced scale (1:20) Maruti Esteem car wooden model is use and results like drag force , pressure distribution , wake region will investigated for aerodynamic analysis.
