Considering Europe (and other places aroud the globe) is dead serious about killing off diesels ( at least diesel cars ) for health reasons that's probably rather prudent.

hard to control NOx emissions from any "lean-burn" engine.

which is any modern diesel engine, but also includes older gasoline engines on models like the Civic HX.
