I will admit I have driven neither but:

The 172 is more of a sleeper, it looks pretty much like a standard clio.
The 182 you know is a hot hatch from the dual exhausts.

Um the 182 is a wee bit heavier 55kg

182 has traction control (after april 04) and cruise control
(172 is optional)

Other than that they seem fairly simular.

Personaly I prefer the looks of the 182 as its newer
