What does one call the windows behind the front windows- are they back windows or rear, side  windows?  And, what does one call the large piece of glass in the rear of the passenger compartment- the back window, or the rear window, or the backlight?

And though those narrow side windows may be called 'vent' windows, they usually don't open on modern vehicles..they are just there for practical reasons--on a 4dr they are there to allow the door window to be narrower so it can be lowered down into the door more fully.     Though in modern cars w/ A/C it's rare to lower all the windows, at least I rarely put down rear door windows.

Actually, 'backlight' is exactly what the rear glass is called.

lol, when I was "much younger" the small windows just behind the windshield were called "NOSE DRAFT WINDOWS".  So I grew up calling those that.  The looked like noses, and you could direct air in all different directions including your nose!
