That Metro station looks wonderful indeed! Although the train may be short (at 3 cars), at least it has a lot of doors (8 doors total, four on each side), making boarding and disembarking easy. I wonder, though: it seems like the trains used on the Dnipropetrovsk and Kiev Metro networks are similar to each other... what company created those Metro train cars?

It's iconic 81-717 (cab car) and 81-714 (intermediate), operated in every CIS metropoliten, exept Alma-Aty, but also in Sofia, Praha, Warsaw, Budapesht.
It was built in Moscow (3690 cars total) and S-Pb (don't know the exact figures, but 1000+ cars), so I think it's the most common subway car in the world (but I'm not sure, especially with all that giant China metros opened recently).

Ah I understand now... that new train consist for the Kiev Metro looks much more modern and pleasant-looking than the older trains! However, the older train consist looks more like a proper subway car (similar to those used in New York City). Plus, do those new train cars for the Kiev Metro come in 5-car consists as well (similar to the older units), and what are the differences in terms of their interior?

I prefer the top one over the bottom because it looks more natural to the train... Plus, the wall color of the newer train interior screams loudly that makes me want to close my eyes while commuting. However, seating-wise, I prefer either one.

I like the KVSZ more, because it gives a dose of good mood which Kyiv overall sometimes lack.

The first foto looks like 90s - "grey with white stripes" livery was first used in early 90s, replacing classic 80s "blue with white stripes".
