My car with 18" wheels also has a large gap, if 5 up with luggage it seems better.
All cars should have a slight rake to the front i.e. Slightly higher at the back

it looks around normal, this was my 2.0 with standard suspension set up and a full tank of fuel,it may be the front is too low.

It's probably like that because all the car's weight is at the front. If the back seats, boot & tank are empty then the rear's gonna look higher than the front. It could be that the rear's okay, and the front springs have sagged and need replacing.
