I would like to know what Mark Golf it is, is it mk6 or mk7

The year of manufacture denotes which "Mk" it is.

  • Mk6 2008-2013 Europe
  • Mk6 2010-2014 (in North America)
  • Mk7 2013-2020 Europe
  • Mk7 2015-2021 (in North America)

EDIT: After some further digging, I realized the Mk6 & 7 were a little strange in that those in North America spanned different years then those in Europe.

As for a tell tale between the two, you need only to look at the hood (bonnet). The Mk6's hood has a rounded and smooth line from the A-pillar to the front, where as the Mk7's hood has a sharp line.

So, that would mean my first guess was wrong on your Golf as it is a Mk7. Strange world we live in.
