PSA Peugeot Citroen said it has never duped consumers about its diesel vehicles, taking a swipe at Volkswagen AG as the German rival reels in the aftermath of a cheating scandal.

Peugeot promised new measures to make its vehicles cleaner and said it will also soon publish real-world fuel economy figures vetted by an independent body. The French carmaker, Europe’s second-biggest, said it has never fitted vehicles with software to turn on emissions controls only while being tested, as Volkswagen has admitted to doing.
