Congrats! It's October month model. The fourth character 'K' represents the October month. The tenth character 'H' represents the model year 2017. The fifth and sixth character represents the production year and in your case, it's 16 which stands for 2016.

This pic is from the engine bay, but has only 17 characters.
Hi, Were you able to decode the Brezza VIN? Is the last 2 digits hidden somewhere or the 17 digit itself has the key? Please help.

The 17 digits itself is enough.

10th & 11th character represents year & month of manufacturing respectively.

Eg: If 10th character is G, the year of manufacturing is 2016 (A=2000, B=2001....., G=2016); If 11th character is J, the month of manufacturing is October (J is the 10th letter of alphabet => 10th month of the year => October)

Thanks much Tojo_GotBhp. Somehow all these webpages give only this much info:

Chassis Number: 040164
Model Year: 2017
Model: XC60 AWD (2008 on)
Factory: [Belgium] Ghent Plant VCG 22
Engine Code: D4204T14

I recollect VW, BMW VINS throw up a lot more information and hence was asking if there's any site that gives a more detailed one.
