OK - Is it an "MK6" or a "Mark 6"?

As a newcomer to the GTI market (Haven't had a VW since my 1968 Squareback), is the model type pronounced "Em Kay" 6 (as my son insists), or is it said Mark 6?

Don't want to start a war (and I know wars have been started for less) -
Mainly curious...

Mark

You type it like MK6, but you say it like mark 6.

Mk6 is just mark 6 abbreviated either or is fine I suppose. Usually on the forum they just use the abbreviation Ex: MK6 GTI or MKV GTI etc

The correct term is said to be "Mark6" but "MK6" is what the younger crowd started using and it's shorter to say but it's also an abbreviation for "Mark6" so whatever is easier I guess lol \_(ツ)_/

I must sheepishly admit to being a dweebus then. I had no idea - I've never been a VW fan until driving my buddy's not that long ago and deciding that I needed one.

The "mark" designation is used heavily in the military.

If I was discussing the forums then I said em kay 6 out loud. If I was discussing the car in general I usually said GTI. If I am discussing my car in particular then I refer to her by name. I think I've only said it out loud as em kay 6 in reference to the cars themselves once so that means one Hail Mary and I should be good, right?

Okay so the official rule is:

Typing it out = MK6
Saying it = "Mark 6"
