The -C was slightly smaller than the -D but not greatly so.

In that plan view, it doesn't look much smaller at all. Comparing saucer-to-saucer and the same with the secondary hulls, the C's slightly shorter and taller
Yeah, it's shorter. But technical specs put the -D at about 7 meters "taller." But we could probably argue both ships are the same height. The -C is about 100-meters shorter, and 167 meters narrower than the -D.

So overall volume has the -C as pretty "smaller" than the -D. There are a few establishing shots in the (unaltered) episode that also makes the size of the ships look very, very different though it could be argued the -C is "further away" from the camera and thus only looks smaller.

Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
