My mom purchased this car last year. I’ve driven it a few times and each time am astounded at how small the windshield is. Making this narrow slat of glass appear even smaller is the bubbling dashboard top, and the front part of the roof which tapers downward looking as though its stretching in vain to merge with the dashboard and completely cocoon you inside.
For comparison here is a photo of the Chevy HHR’s windshield along with the windshield of the space shuttle Discovery, which you’d expect have LESS visibility to the outside.
