Volkswagen has named nine models that have been retested to find incorrect CO2 emissions being exhausted to the atmosphere than those initially stated.
The VW group said all but nine models are in line with the figures originally posted for CO2. The models affected are all listed below and from the 2016 model year, they include petrol, diesel, manual and automatic (DSG) configurations.
VW Polo 1.0 TSI BlueMotion 70kW EU6 DSG
VW Scirocco 2.0 TDI BMT 135kW EU6 manual
VW Jetta 1.2 TSI BMT 77kW EU6 manual
VW Jetta 2.0 TDI BMT 81kW EU6 manual
VW Golf Convertible 2.0 TDI BMT 81kW EU6 manual
VW Golf 2.0 TDI BMT 110kW EU6 manual

VW Passat Estate 2.0 TDI SCR 4MOTION BMT 176kW EU6 DSG

The Manufacturer said the volume of models with higher numbers on the CO2 and fuel consumption was low, amounting to around 36,000 vehicles a year. The increase in CO2 and MPG only deviates to a few grams over and one to three miles less per gallon of fuel. The models affected will be tested again just before Christmas under supervision and the results then released in due course.
Volkswagen is continuing with their investigation further into the SEAT, AUDI and SKODA models, to which or if any of them are also affected.
