As the Volkswagen diesel scandal continues to play out, it has caused a resurgence in scrutiny over diesel powered vehicles by nearly all automakers. Recently, however, Opel has come under fire.
According to the university’s findings, the Zafira allegedly produced emissions that were 17 times higher than current Euro 6 standards.
Germany’s environmental lobby group, DUH, said the 1.6-liter CDTi diesel engine was not in compliance after finding excessive nitric oxide emissions.
Opel has denied the findings completely, with no additional comment on the matter at this time.
