Also, in some markets, the model year is the year the calendar year car was built, which further adds to confusion. For example, in the US market, the 2018 model year started in summer 2017 and runs through summer 2018. 2018 cars sold in the US in September 2017 may be considered 2017 models elsewhere in the world.
The VIN would give the most definitive answer on what model year the car is for the market it was originally sold in.
