Experimental and numerical analyzes were performed to investigate the aerodynamic performances of a realistic vehicle with different afterbody rounding. Rounding the side pillars generated moderate changes in drag and important lift reductions. The minor effect on the drag force was found to result from opposite drag effects on the slanted and vertical surfaces. The vorticity distribution in the near wake was also analyzed to understand the flow field modifications due to afterbody rounding.
