Own measurements by 'Monitor' in an exhaust gas inspection center in Switzerland have shown that the same type of vehicle with a 1.6-liter Euro 6 diesel engine exceeded the CO2 emissions by around 20 percent.

Opel rejects allegations

Opel emphatically and decisively rejects the claims of the TV magazine Monitor. The claim that the CO2 emissions of the Opel Zafira 1.6 CDTI are supposedly 15 percent above the official figures is false. The CO2 figures from Opel are correct.
