normally I would agree... but lately this has more to to do with actual visibility out of the car, than with it's size.
and in this case, long "pedestrian&safety" slopping bonnet, thick pillars, high "hips", "thin" side windows and rather small&high rear window, really do not help!
and about "compact"... 4,4m in length and 1.8m in width were not so long ago usual dimensions of a completely different class of vehicles
... so I'm with Reppu this time... it annoys me to, having "compacts" of today's sizes and no room to use!
frankly, this is "illness" of all modern cars, regardless of class&size... my Ax was what... 20cm shorter and 350kg lighter, but it had more room in the cabin and double booth size, than C2 I have now! to be honest, it was waaay more "dangerous" to use (it went like hell and offer basically no protection
), so I guess besides "high retail price" and "weight", "size&space" are things we have to "sacrifice" on the "altar" of safety!
