Duel Pane Windows

Why do the 2021 MY have duel pane windows?
It is only the driver and front passenger windows that have been changed to laminated glass. Laminated glass costs more than tempered glass. The reasons could include added safety in a collision or reducing infiltration of outside noise. If for safety then why not provide the same protection for the second row passengers? The laminated glass windows may be part of a European auto standard.
