The 175 m figure is most likely correct. The rumour is that Snyder got an increase of about 25-45 m in the production budget after concept arts were shown whereby an increase in GCI cost, maybe set, costume & additional location shots will need to be met. Any extra cost will be for post-converting to 3D on WB's order. I don't think that we will ever know the exact production budget.
I don't think that 175 m is small scale. Any film budget over 150 m is deemed to be "big budget".
