    Some of diesel VW vehicles with defeat software were certified in UK.
    The real problem was not the agencies, but the way the car were tested.

    Easy to se the difference i ntests procedures between Euro 6, that for light vehicles (up to 3.5 tons), and Euro VI that are for hevier vehicles. This last ones where found to being inside the legal limits.

    And since "the devil makes the pots but not the lids to cover them up", here one of recent studies published about gasoline direct injection engine emissions of particulate matter (and why gasoline filters are needed).

    Web Content Display (at https://www.empa.ch/web/s604/soot-particles-from-gdi/-/journal_content/56_INSTANCE_NewsArt/56164/1183635?p_p_state=pop_up&_56_INSTANCE_NewsArt_page=1&_56_INSTANCE_NewsArt_viewMode=print )

    The last vehciles, the Peugeot 4008, 1.6 is a diesel Euro 5b with diesel particulate filter.

    Researchers push for action

    The results of the GasOMeP project were presented during a conference held at the Empa Academy in late March. The conclusion of the researchers involved: particle filters are established in diesel vehicles and have offered advanced technology for years; based on the current data, they should now also be mandatory for gasoline vehicles.

    “At the moment, they don’t incorporate the best available technology,” criticizes Heeb, urging haste: “New exhaust emission technologies launched on the market usually take around 13 years to become fully effective. Only then will nine out of ten cars from the vehicle stock be replaced. So the sooner particle filters are made mandatory for gasoline vehicles, the better it will be for every-one’s health.”
    ..."

    And here an end 2016 document about legislation and new tests, and how tests can change what automaker will or will not install.

    I've long wondered if this could at least partly be to blame for the delay in getting GSE 4 Cyl and GME 4 Cyl into large scale production.

    Not important for US or NAFTA market but for EU it's very important.

    Absolutely both inherent particulate/carbon build up on intake valves and concern that the EPA would regulate GDI have been key reasons for the delay. Reformulated gasoline with lower impurities should help and I think that is now in place. I know it was scheduled to be but I don't know if it actually happened.

    There is currently no such requirement, but it was being discussed during the time of the previous administration....

    Considering that FCA drags their feets at everything, I don't think that's the specific reason. But who knows...

    Looks like its getting lane keep assist too. That probably implies ACC and self parking as well.

    Maybe it's just the angle, but I'm not caring for the bezel around the screen. It looks huge.

    Not sure if thats the same below the bumper grill as in Darkskys render or just camo they were messing around with to hide what it looks like

    The 'factory' spyshot shows what the lower bumper looks like I think, of that tester.

    @redriderbob posted this earlier in the thread. It's the picture I based the rendering on.

    ^ That's the one I meant. lol - Though now that I look at it, the upper grille looks like it's still in the clay.
