Euro 6 diesel cars list: full details of compliant cars

The cheap diesel cars exempt from low emission zone charges: see the full list of Euro 6-compliant diesel cars

Euro 6 has gone from a little-known industry standard to the buzzword at the front of diesel buyers' minds.

It's the name of current emissions standards, which every new car must meet. More importantly, diesel cars must be Euro 6-compliant to avoid daily charges of £12.50 in London's new ultra-low emissions zone (ULEZ), which began operating on April 8.

Diesel drivers will also need a car that meets the Euro 6 standard to avoid charges in Birmingham's clean air zone (CAZ), which comes into force early next year, as well as in other low emission zones that are being considered. The rules are less strict for petrol cars: any model that's less than 13 years old will be unaffected.

  • Virtually every new car registered since September 2015 has been Euro 6-compliant. Click below to search for all diesel cars that meet Euro 6 regulations.


Some Euro 6-compliant cars were sold before September 2015. These older cars will also be exempt from low emission zone charges and are cheaper than more recent models. For example, Euro 6 diesel Vauxhall Astras have been sold since 2014 and prices start at £5,599 or £108 per month with finance
