A new version of the Opel Corsa is spotted on tests

Initially, the new Corsa was created on the platform of the American concern GM, but eventually the novelty will receive a “cart” from the French PSA.

To use components and assemblies of the concern General Motors, which previously owned the German brand Opel, would mean constantly acquiring a license for these parts, so the French concern Groupe PSA decided to take a different path. It is the latter that now includes Opel. The guys decided on their own to develop a receiver for the 5-door hatchback Opel / Vauxhall Corsa.

As a result of this decision, the novelty will receive the same CMP modular platform as the next-generation baby Peugeot 208 as the basis.

The common platform will naturally allow the management of the concern to get rid of large cash costs, since the two subcompact hatchbacks will use common technologies.

A couple of minutes ago, we received “spy” photos of the new (sixth) generation of the Corsa model in a fully serial body. Although due to the heavy camouflage applied to the spotted prototype, there’s really nothing to watch. Black steel wheel covers without hubcaps suggest that the car is in the early testing phase.

Under the disguise should be a completely new design, inspired by the concept of the GT X Experimental, presented last year. Despite the fact that it will go on a completely new basis, it is believed that the Corsa 2020 model year will be approximately the same size as the current model.

It is expected that the new generation of 5-door hatchback Opel Corsa will debut this year, and its more environmentally friendly counterpart will be introduced in 2020.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the Opel brand introduced the next version of the Vivaro van.
