I think the reason for moving the mirrors back had little to do with adding the little windows and everything to do with eliminating blind spots so you can see vehicles to each side. Actually I am pretty sure I read that somewhere, but I wasn't in the design team meeting.
Either way it works for me, if you don't like the look of the car or any of its features there are other cars you can buy.
