VW engines manipulated again?

The Volkswagen Group does not come to rest. After the "diesel gate" scandal, the next hammer seems to be about to hit. Research by several media, including RTL and SWR, has shown that the group from Wolfsburg has probably also manipulated the newer diesel engines with EURO 6 emission standards. Thus those engines are to have been provided with a software, which can recognize whether the vehicle is subjected to a control. Hundreds of thousands of motor vehicles are supposed to be affected, as can be seen from internal documents which are exclusively available to SWR. VW denies the accusations.
