Emissions Standards

Since 1992, the European Union (EU) has imposed strict limits on the emissions of vehicles. These are referenced as ‘Euro’ standards. Euro 6 is the latest iteration of these standards. A breakdown of the different ‘Euro’ standards levels can be found below.

You can also find the specific fuel, CO2 and tax data for your vehicle by visiting the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) website or by contacting SEAT on 0808 5222 222.
