One prime example of how a vehicle can manage to have slightly different versions of the same things is the 2017 Mini Cooper Paceman.

It is roughly 4.5” taller, and 15” longer than its progenitor.  Therefore, it offers an improved ride height and passenger space for its backseat passengers.

Even with the injection of extra legroom for the backseat passengers, they will certainly need an expertise whenever they are getting in or out of the vehicle. That said, the Paceman might not be very practical, nor the most practical. Other downsides include a modest cargo space, a pokey acceleration especially with the base powerplant, less headroom, and a firm ride quality relative to what its competition offers.
