Wrecked vehicles are not area terrain. And therefore they don't have a size classification. A wrecked Rhino is functionally equivalent (in game terms) to a rhino shaped rock. It confers a 4+ cover save to models looking above or around it. It's difficult terrain to infantry and dangerous terrain to vehicles. But infantry can't "enter" a Rhino wreck any more than they can "enter" a large rock. They can however climb up onto it and move around on top of it (but will need to take a difficult terrain test to do so).
