First, it needs to be remembered that in the 70’s and 80’s a lot of cars featured attempts to link the base of the side glass to the base of the windscreen.
These days some cars manage that flow; most don’t try because the vertical offset between the side glass and high scuttle is too much to link graphically or sculpturally. It’s a function of high bonnets and raked shoulder lines.
Here’s an old example, a ’76 Princess (sorry, we lack a source for this image).
And here is a more subtle one:
(And no image credit for that either).
The Ka has the lines flowing more naturally:
And here’s an example of no side-to-front flow, though the little up-kick at the forward end of the window base has a try.
