U.S. emission rules to pose trouble for European brands...in South Korea?

Starting next year, European automakers such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz are going to get a double-whammy selling their vehicles in South Korea. Already required to meet tough European standards for their diesel vehicles sold in the country, the automakers must now comply to U.S. standards for any of their gasoline-powered vehicles as well. The government enacted the requirement as it fights to reduce air pollution. American automakers, interestingly, may benefit from the ruling as their rivals scramble to comply to both rules.
