Euro6...or is it 5?

Hi all.
This my first post on here as I've just bought a 2016 Civic SR diesel hatchback from a Honda dealer after years of driving estate cars (a work requirement). In fact it''s my first ever Honda! The car is gorgeous and I'm looking forward to driving many miles in it.
There is a slight fly in the ointment though in that it was registered in March 2016 but I've since found it''s a Euro 5 car. I checked with Honda as the V5C didn't list the Euro class. It also turns out it was manufactured in July 2015 and is a 2015YM model.
Strangely, Parkers, TFL and the UK.Gov all list it as Euro 6.
A long winded intro I know, but wondering does anyone think I should be bothered about this or just enjoy driving it.
Given all the hype/hysteria around diesel cars recently it''s a bit of a worry and is a little confusing.

Hi Mike. Welcom to CivInfo. Just drive and enjoy it without a care in the world and say bugger to the tree huggers. That is unless you are one. In which case, shame on you for buying such a filthy polluting car.

You have bought it now so simply drive it and enjoy because either way it will not make any difference to you as you have bought it.

I dont know how its done in the UK but here in NL old diesels from before 2000 arent allowed in certain city's. Cant imagine they would forbid cars from 2015

I didn't think Holland had any cities, just dykes and windmills. Please don't tell me that my perception is wrong.

Thanks all.
Yeah, not much I can do except drive it and enjoy it I guess. Just a bit miffed as I thought I was buying a Euro 6...should've done more digging beforehand.
Luckily I don't have to commute in and out of any cities around here as I'm sure there'll be charges galore in the next few years.
Consoled myself by fitting some shiny new mats today
Updated the Sat Nav too which was actually free to do...unlike my wife's Note!

I had this problem also, My dealer didn't even know the euro class either!!
I checked on the transport for London website and it says my car is Euro 6 and not covered by new low emmision charges which will be introduced for Euro 5 car and older. But my car is actually a Euro 5 :/ unless it's Euro 5 but they actually meet Euro 6 standards.

Isn't the difference whether it has a DPF or not.
I assumed that they fitted the DPF to meet E6

No, both Euro5 and Euro6 diesels need DPF for the PM levels of the emissions. Euro6 was a drop in NOx which Honda achieved with both increase EGR and NSC (NOx Storage Cat) some other manufacturers used SCR systems (Adblue)

You would think that Adblue would have been called Adgreen wouldn't you?

it is so strange that just by registering after Sep 2015, the 1.6 is classified as EURO 6 by TFL. :S

The easiest way for any prospective buyer to find out is to check the VIN, FU2 is euro5, FU6 euro 6

I was blissfully unaware of the euro5/6 thing, doesn't really make much difference to me tbh. Have since found out mine is a euro6 anyway

Cant see any reference to FU2 or FU6 in the VIN of mine

Or is this just Hatch models ? (mine is a tourer)

Mine is EU5 according to the TFL website (Mar 2015)

It'll tell you on your V5 what it is.

I don't think it does explicitly, it does quote the CO2 NOX and CO but not the actual EU level

I'm pretty sure it does but will accept it when you check later if it doesn't
