I suspect that if you go test drive any other modern car, you'll find similar issues with visibility. New crash-safety regulations in the last few years have caused all manufacturers to use much beefier pillars all around, so visibility has gone down. This is safer in a crash, but my pet theory is that it makes accidents more likely because of poorer visibility. It's also part of the reason that systems like "blind spot monitoring" have become common... you didn't need it before, but now you do.I went for a test drive in a 2018, and I was really offput by the visibility restrictions of the car... The A pillars stood out as the worst to me, too.
I've got an 05 Cobalt at the moment, and it has pretty great visibility for a sedan... Before that, I only ever owned coups, including my Fiero and my El Camino. I loved them for their visibility.
