What does "[6 Euro 4]" mean in car ads?

Just been browsing Autotrader - the mondeos have a 5 gear and a 6 gear version and I assume the [6] in the advert indicates that this is a 6 gear version.
Some of them, however, have [6 Euro 4] in the title and I have no idea what this means.

Can anyone shed any light?

Cheers

6 speed box, and the engine meets Euro 4 Emissions Standards. Which doesn't really matter to you.

Please read the FAQ regarding signature sizes.

euro 4 is the emissions class, and thus the car tax rate you will be charged i think.

Not true. It's just a set of standards for emissions that manufacturers had to meet by a certain date - company car tax has a lot to do with Euro III and IV emissions standards but Road Fund License, whilst rated on C02 emissions, is not heavily dependant on Euro IV.

I'm posting my Mondeo up on Autotrader so maybe I should add it into my ad?
