    Crown for sure.
    my friend has a 94 model crown. Comfort of this car is unmatched. and Drive and stability is much better than w202.

    A good maintained W202 is always better than an auctioned or body changed crown decide your self among both and go for the one you find better in condition.

    I have a 97 Toyota Crown Royal Saloon; and i have no words to describe that car, exceptional ride, extremely comfortable, easily drives to the 180km mark, and you wouldn't even notice that it is at such high speeds, the suspension is very well cushioned in cracks and potholes, comes with a nice sound system, dual AC, audio and AC controls in the rear and moreover got it from the Malaysian Consulate so was in great condition.

    Overall when i get out of it i don't even feel like touching my 8Gen Civic's steering wheel.

    Strange. I thought Crown is not good at turnings. Here everyone says it is better than W202 in terms of comfort

    Because the body is a little on the larger side one feels that the body roll is more, but it is only a feeling, turns very well and is extremely comfortable.

    Crown 2.8L is gas guzzler, no doubt its a good car made by Toyota but parts problem is a main issue, on the other hand W202 is a smaller 1.8L good economical car with decent size, robust build quality and very comfortable in its class, parts and maintenance not a big issue.
    There's no car like Mercedes-Benz.

    crown id say ....for me its way better than W202 in terms of comfort, peace of mind ..and more importantly reliability
    parts are available for both of the above though a bit expensive..and not TOO common but still in big cities it isnt much of a problem finding them
    drug-s3x-money .....be careful: this is the kind of obsession that can render you utterly useless

    it is always better to buy top of line premium product of a cheaper brand rather than to get lower economy product of an expensive brand...

    now only if u r not a brand following person..

    w202 is available in all sort of engines. if u r taking abt c180 then yes it has 1.8L engine. but w202 also comes in 2.2, 2.5, 2.8 and some other variants like c63amg.
    but here lets compare c180 to crown.
    crown has a bigger engine to it will consume more fuel.
    w202 has some electrical issues which can easily be rectified.
    w202 generates more grip than crown does.
    suspension on w202 is better
    the basic model or even elegance lacks in options as compared to crown but then again u wont need them anyway.
    spare parts as easy to find of both the cars.
    w202 has cheaper spares than crown
    and yeah once maintained there is no other car like an MB.

    so if i were u and if i had 1.2mil in my pocket and i had to choose between c180 and crown i will always go for c180.

    p.s. ive kept em both and i am tellin u my personal experience.
    every day i wake up and die a little.
