Nah, it's normal. Only the station platform is too narrow and it creates that feeling of a crowded space.

The station almost looks claustrophobic and utterly dark, if not for the low hanging lights.

Yeah La Defense really is one ugly station! It was built at that time where everything had to be efficient and not necessarily aesthetic... unfortunatly

i love those cars! such modern and comfortable

But why they don't want to abandon the MF67 even refurbished?

MP89 is much better! i love it especially the automatic version for meteor line 14

I actually like the refurbished MF67s, I don't like the MP59s too much b/c they are so old. My favorite is the MP89.

I think the most hideous of all the stations I've seen so far is La Defense.

La Défense is indeed quite narrow. You can see it on this video, not only attractive for the metro only by the way..

So RAPT wants to be Environment Friendly Eh? Why Look at the London Underground it does use normal air conditioning. And I'm Amazed at this Feat that The Paris Metro Has The Standard Size for Trains Unlike the London Underground that only has 4 Lines that have Over sized Loading Gauge and 7 Lines that are Narrow

Oh god this argument again.

Every stock on LU is actually wider than Paris Metro rolling stock. The only difference is the tapering shape on the deep level lines, in terms of floor area, LU wins. They're also longer than Paris Metro trains, too.
