My R171 55 is my everyday car.
Short journeys and longer. Happy to do daily drives of 200+ miles.
More miles - more smiles.
Sometimes it is the shopping car too.
Used in sun, rain, sleet, ice and snow (though for deep snow I get the SUV out. Don't want the car scraping salt and snow off the road).
What tells me that I have the right car for me is should I lose it, I will buy another 171 55 right away.
No exhaust flaps & more importantly no stop/start.
The downside, some parts are no longer being stocked by MB.
Drive the 171 vs a 172 and decide for yourself.
Use the guide to examine prospective purchase. https://www.slkworld.com/general-dis...ook-guide.html
