Corsa to get PSA treatment

Opel, which PSA Group has agreed to buy from General Motors, will use the French carmaker’s technology in its next generation of Corsa models.

Reuters reports that Opel had previously said its new Corsa, scheduled for launch in 2019, would be built with GM technology but has now decided to use Peugeot technology, allowing for higher margins.

The new Corsa will be Opel’s fourth joint project with PSA after Opel models Crossland X, Grandland X and Combo. The Corsa will be built at Opel’s largest manufacturing site in Saragossa, Spain.
