...How the car is assessed for emissions has changed, but the rules about fleet average CO2 emissions have not. In order to stick to those commitments (and not face huge fines), the car makers have to find a way to counter the huge rises from the change in test regime.

While this may, long-term, see a return to larger, naturally aspirated engines, for now manufacturers are doing the only thing they can: reducing power. Volkswagen has also dropped the manual gearbox from the Golf R, in favor of the more economical DSG.

The rules themselves are the same, but the testing procedure is being made to be more realistic.

The US EPA did the same 10 years ago, with more-realistic testing procedure.

Incredible how lenient the previous tests were.
