Euro 6 diesel key points

New Euro 6 diesel cars are built and tested to the highest ever standards

  • Euro 6 diesel standards, all cars from September 2015, are the strictest in history, for NOx gas emissions and cannot be compared to old diesel 
  • Euro 6 diesel cars are kinder to climate change than equivalent petrol models producing on average 20% less CO2 than their petrol equivalents*
  • From 2018 new diesel cars will have to pass the stringent Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) testing procedures
  •  The Government have recommended that Euro 6 diesel cars face NO restrictions or penalties for driving into cities with emissions restrictions
