WhichCar magazine gives the R172 a public beating!!
They compared the Audi TT, A BMW Z4 and Porche Boxster with the R172.

Boxster came out on top, R172 finished last.

If you can get your hands on the in-depth review (especially as you may be about to splash out the cash) then its a good read.

Some of the other motoring magazines coming up with the same issues.

So is the R172 worth a punt?

Having finally seen it in the flesh at the dealership in Shoreham, East Sussex. I still hated the nose, the inside looked 'ok'. The rear end and front side panels were to die for.

Just need to get more feedback from UK owners.

Probably for sure doesn't appeal to those with excess testosterone.

Although, the AMG version isn't here yet, so might wait for that test.

And, you can't count on the notion that it's better than the R171 in every way you can think of.

Same happenned in the Auto Express test.

Came 3rd after Audi TT, BMW Z4.

Haven't seen one in the flesh yet, but every time I see a picture head on it it just looks like the new C Class.
