What is Euro 4?

Unlike DS, some car makers have opted to judge their scrappage schemes based on emissions standards. Car emissions are classified against a scale set by the European Commission. Essentially, every couple of years the emissions regulations are tightened to help improve air quality in Europe. The 2017 scrappage schemes generally require your old car to have a Euro 4 or earlier rating – so produced before 31 December 2010.
