Added scrutiny from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has delayed certification of BMW's diesel-powered 2017 models as a result of the Volkswagen's emission scandal, several media outlets are reporting.

BMW is still waiting for certification for four of its models, including the 328d sedan, 328d wagon, X3 xDrive28d, and X5 xDrive 35d, the company told Car and Driver.

The EPA has intensified its diesel testing proceedures after Volkswagen included a defeat device in nearly 500,000 vehicles that subverted testing protocols. The diesel-powered 2017 535d isn't included in the process.
