Emissions scandal: How does your car rank?

All 37 top-selling cars in the UK exceeded the limit Credit: PA/Reuters

None of the 37 top-selling cars in the UK meet "real world" legal levels of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.

The figures were revealed by a Government inquiry which commenced in the wake of the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal.

As the Government bids to better protect the environment, car manufacturers are now required to meet Euro 6 standards - meaning a legal NOx limit of 80mg/km.

Up until September last year, manufacturers were required to meet Euro 5 standards (180mg/km).

Is your car one of the 37 to fail the legal "real world" emissions limit?
