French automaker Renault will recall 15 800, diesel version of the Captur small sport utility vehicles, after French commission created by Minister for Ecology and Sustainable Environment Segolene Royal made public concerns about an engine processor fault that disabled its exhaust after-treatment system, causing NOx levels to soar. She also admitted other brands had exceeded norms.

In the wake of Wolswagen AG's cheating on diesel emission tests, Renault Chief Competition Officer Thierry Bolloretold said that Renault is not cheating:"We are meeting the norms, and we are not trying to trick the consumer."
