Station-wagon-like cars with great visibility
We drive a 2012 Hyundai Elantra Touring (Hyundai's station wagon-like car discontinued after that model year). We are looking ahead to what our next car purchase might be.
We love the form factor of the Elantra Touring -- compact but with lots of level trunk space, easy to load and unload -- and also the great visibility out the sides and back. I am tall and my partner is short, and we both found that this model had the best visibility (through the rear and side windows) of several that we tried when we were last car-shopping.
What is on the market these days that has a similar form-factor (not a big SUV), with great visibility (i.e. large vertical windows)? The Mazda 5 perhaps comes to mind... Bonus points if there is something that meets those requirements in the hybrid world, as we are considering that option as well.
