The looks of each model has it supporters and detractors, and each look is very subjective. Personally, although I have a 172, I'd like it better if the styling was as the 171 - but (and it is a big but), I really like the interior of the 172, and the ride is, in my opinion, much more comfortable.
Each of the three styles, 170, 171 and 172 were clearly designed to appeal to slightly different markets. Good for MB in my opinion. Different design briefs broaden the appeal of the marque - I, for one, am not knocking any of them.
