The styling may make them look bigger than they are.

For comparison an Austin 20 has a length of 5100 mm while a Subaru Outback, a modern four door station wagon, is 4800 mm. A difference of a bit over one foot. The Austin is certainly a big car, but maybe not as big as it looks. The wheelbases are very long as well, helped by the front wheels being set a long way forward.
