The refit is named the "Columbia Class" and both the NX-01 Enterprise and NX-06 Endeavour have been refitted to it during or after the Romulan war.
What is the extra addition body section supposed to do for the ship anyway? I can see an advantage to having more internal space. But given that the ship retains the original twin warp engines wouldn't speed, range and malnuverablity be seriously reduced?

It might affect maneuverability, and perhaps speed. But with the additional volume, you can have a larger warp reactor (more power), carry more fuel and supplies (added range - good for exploring), and more personnel (if needed).
