I drove a new Ford Taurus recently, and while it's a very nice car, the visibility stinks. Backing out of a parking spot is an adventure and a bit of a leap of faith; you simply can't see what's behind you. And I find myself crouching over the wheel to look up to see when the light turns green because the roof overhangs so far.

Seems like car makers are adopting the same body style as the Taurus (or maybe the Taurus is adopting the same style other manufacturers are using). At any rate, this style favors style over functionality, in my opinion. Since this is the latest trend, I'm betting it will be here for awhile, but I'm looking forward to it passing. It's like they're trying too hard to look futuristic and sleek at the expense of driveability.

Some examples:

Ford Taurus[^]
Buick Lacrosse[^]
Nissan Maxima[^]
Jaguar XJ[^]
Lexus LS[^]
