Euro 6 diesel cars list: full details of compliant cars

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

For years, "Euro 6" meant little to anyone outside the car industry, but they are now two essential words for anyone in the market for a diesel car.

It's the name of current emissions standards, which every new car must meet. Diesel owners will need a Euro 6-compliant car to avoid daily charges of up to £12.50 in low emission zones from next year. 

These include London's ultra-low emissions zone, and a clean air zone in the centre of Birmingham. The rules are less strict for petrol cars and few will be affected.

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


Cars didn't suddenly meet the Euro 6 regulations in September 2015 - many were available long before then. 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 £6,489 or £118 per month with finance.

All cars below were available with at least one Euro 6-compliant engine in 2014 or earlier. The date next to each model shows when the first Euro 6 versions appeared on British roads.

However, stocks of earlier Euro 5 cars continued to be sold for a short period, so you should ask a car retailer to confirm its Euro rating before you buy.

Some Euro 6 cars have been recalled to improve emissons performance. These remain Euro 6-compliant.
