Opel Corsa 2020 has received a serial bodyFebruary 13, 2019
Initially, the new Corsa was built on the platform of the American concern GM, but in the end the car will receive French “roots” from PSA.
Earlier, the German sedan Opel Corsa was built on the basis of a platform from the American concern General Motors. And after Opel was sold to the French concern PSA, the management of the latter decided to create a new version of the model on one of its “carts”.
In fact, the development of a new Opel / Vauxhall Corsa will be started from scratch.
As a result, the new supermini will receive the same modular CMP platform as the next-generation baby Peugeot 208. This step leads to a reduction in the financial costs of developing these two cars.
A couple of minutes ago, foreign publications published a test prototype of the sixth generation Corsa model, which was reportedly in its serial body. Due to the heavy camouflage, so far there’s really nothing to look at. Black steel wheels without caps do not make a subcompact hatchback stylish – there is no doubt that the serial version of the car will get other wheels.
Under this disguise should be a completely new design, inspired by the concept of the GT X Experimental, presented last year. Despite the fact that the Opel Corsa will switch to another platform, it is assumed that the Corsa 2020 model year will be approximately the same size as the current model.
Under the hood, the latest 3-cylinder PureTech engine with a 1.2-liter turbocharger will be located. It is expected that the next Corsa will debut this year, and its more environmentally friendly analogue of eCorsa will be shown in 2020.
