Toyota Yaris - Toyota Coolant - Which one? - corax


We have a Toyota Yaris that is due to be serviced. It's an '05 model petrol 1.3 and it will be serviced at the excellent local garage. I have a question regarding coolant. The service sheet says that there are two types of coolant,

Long Life Coolant (LLC) - changed every 3 years or 40000 miles (whichever is sooner), thereafter every 2 years or 20000 miles

Super Long Life Coolant (S-LLC) - every 10 years or 100000 miles (whichever is sooner)

The car has done 36000 miles. If the coolant is S-LLC then obviously I don't have to worry, but can these 2 coolants be recognised visually by colour? I'm not sure which one it has.

Thanks in advance.
