R170 vs R171

I am ignorant, this much I know, but could y'all explain what the difference between R171 and R172 is? I have a 2002 Slk320. Which one is mine? How would I know that? Thanks in advance.

Yours is a r170. R171 was 2004-2011. R172 is 2012 on

Yes we know some overseas models come out in late 2003/4 and 2011/2012

R170 was 1998-2003/4

R171 SLK = Sexy Larger Koupe'

R171 SLK55 = Superfast Larger Koupe'

R172 SLK = Spendthrift Luxury Koupe'
