Since Opel became part of the PSA Group, we became echo of an important fact that affects directly to the new generation of one of the models most iconic German brand. The new Opel Corsa F will delay its launch. During the last few months we have been publishing numerous spy photos together with you, we had some aspects of its development, however, after being acquired by the group automobile French, Opel have decided to wait a while for the new Corsa will be able to adopt technology of PSA.
Following the footsteps of other models that had been developed jointly by Opel and PSA, (a clear example is the new Opel Crossland (X), the new generation of the Opel Corsa will do the same and in addition to mount an own platform of the French group in place of the architecture G2SC (General Motors) as initially planned. To this we must add the numerous components and the relevant range of engines with the seal of PSA.
According to the information that has been a average european specialist, an internal source of the company ensures that the new Corsa F will hit the market in the year 2019. Quite predictably, as a model of 2020 as we have been anticipating in the months prior.

One of the major innovations that will bring with it the new Opel Corsa is that it will make act of presence the variant sedan. It is a type of bodywork that we saw around these parts since a few years ago. In addition to the incorporation of new bodies (in addition to the current hatchback 3 and 5 doors), the new model will take a step to the front at the level of technology and connectivity.
If we look at these spy photos of the interior of the Opel Corsa F, we find a cabin which introduces elements already known because they are used by Opel in their new models. The dashboard is very similar to that of Crossland X. The screen that crowns the central console will increase its size and prominence. In it you will be able to make use of the latest generation of the infotainment system of the brand.
¿Where will it be manufactured? The acquisition of Opel by the PSA Group will not affect the production of the next generation of the Opel Corsa. Therefore, the new Corsa (like the next Adam) will be produced at the plant General Motors/Opel has in Figueruelas (Zaragoza). Great news that the signature of the beam was confirmed at the end of last year and which guarantees part of the burden of work on the assembly lines of the designated factory.
