as far as the lose of the low sedan goes, well. that idea didn’t exist until the 1950's and was born out of style not substance. Honestly it should be surprising that it took 70 years for it too die. before the 50s cars looked like more something we’d call an SUV now. 7-8 inches or more off the ground, lots of headroom, and no real trunk to speak of.
ow if we could just get Windows that big on a CUV.
