I should imagine the emissions meeting the 'as new' standard would be pretty hard to match as almost any wear to rings and guides will allow a small amount of extra oil (hydrocarbons) into the combustion chamber plus slightly altered performance from injectors, filter etc will also change the output values. I should think, especially in light of the VW fiddle, it would be possible to fail a brand new car.........
