One of the reasons cars have become so large with poor visibility and difficult entry/exit is that the pillars have been bulked up over the years to provide protection from rollovers. This is one of the reasons that cars now all have mandatory reversing cameras and tiny rear windows. I theorise that an unintended off shoot of this is that getting into small cars has become harder and more awkward, and the cars "feel" smaller inside, pushing people to buy giant wankmobiles.
In the end, demand for big, powerful cars is huge and growing, so unless there's legislation to decrease their sales it's unlikely the problem will get better.
