I am interested to know what everyone's preference is - R170, R171, R172
They are all great cars and all have their virtues.
Personally I love the styling of the R171, hence buying one recently, but understand how some may love the classic R170 or more modern R172


Show your preference in the POLL.

I got caught by that.


The SLC is another R172.


I can't vote for a single model, each has it's merits.


Started with a 230 and loved it to bits. Age and lack of previous care by former owners meant bye bye time.
I'll never trade my 55 R171 for any other model, it suits me.
The R172 interior and things like the camera are great.


Simple formula.
Buy the best condition that you can afford and whatever the model you will smile.

your poll should also take into account members that have had 2 (r170,r171)
or even all 3 generations

I chose the r171 but I like the r170s looks both are pretty cars to me.
The r172 has a more aggressive front that I personally think is more blokey. That said recently by me it's been ladies driving them.

Has to be the 171 for me ...

No V8 on the 170, odd nose on the 172 .... but great seats...
