Case in point. My old Panda had absolutely fantastic visibility, but my new Twingo has a tiny rear window and huge C pillars. At least it has nice big mirrors to counter it. It doesn’t look so bad in the picture, but the way you sit to drive it means you have huge blind spots. The Panda on the other hand is like a greenhouse.
The price you pay for much better crash safety I guess, Plus the design of the Twingo doesn’t help.
