The Porsche Cayenne Diesel is one of several larger models built by Volkswagen that the EPA now says also used trickery to pass emissions tests.

It's not just the four-cylinder models. Now the EPA says VW used a similar cheat on its larger, six-cylinder diesel engines.

Two months ago, Volkswagen admitted it had used a sophisticated trick to fool emissions tests on vehicles powered by its four-cylinder diesel engine.

Now, the EPA says VW used a similar scheme to end-run testing of their larger, six-cylinder diesel. It powers luxury models such as the Porsche Cayenne and the Audi Q5.

Our car critic,
