SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea says it will investigate emission levels of Volkswagen diesel vehicles after the world’s top-selling automaker admitted cheating U.S. tests.

Park Pan-kyu, a deputy director at South Korea’s environment ministry, said Tuesday that four models — Golf, Jetta, Beetle and Audi A3 — are subject to the probe, expected to end in November. About 6,000 vehicles made in 2014 and 2015 were sold under those nameplates in South Korea.
