Attached Image Lately, many different car makers have been accused of cheating on emission or fuel economy figures in order to pass standard tests. According to Reuters, the South Korean ministry has accused Nissan’s UK-built Qashqai SUV diesels of using a 'defeat device' to turn off its exhaust reduction system under regular driving temperature.

The cars under question appears to be the new Qashqai models with the Euro 6 engines. But Nissan has fought back and issued a statement confirming that the 814 Nissan Qashqais sold in Korea have been correctly homologated as required by the by the Korean Ministry of Environment.

Nevertheless, the ministry said that it would fine Nissan S$380,000, and order a recall for all the models sold in the country so far. It will also be testing the older models with the Euro 5 engines.
