If you live in the USA, a 2015 is going to be a 451. :) IIRC, only Europe got the 2015 453s.

If you've got the two tail lights like you can almost see on the white one above, then you've got a 451. If you only have one tail light on each side, then you've got a 453.

Yea.... don't have to go through all that effort of figuring out which car you have. In the US, 2008-2015 model year's are 451's. 2016-present are 453's. It's like Miss Mercedes said... 453's were made available in Europe for the 2015 model year. They didn't come stateside until the following model year. That's the reason why SmartMadness shows the 453 as 2015+.... for people ordering from Europe (though, with their essentially non-existent selection of mods for a 453, I can't imagine why anyone would).

Your 2015 ForTwo is a 451.
