The next Corsa is scheduled to hit the market in 2019

Its design and aesthetics will be based on Opel’s technology rather than GM’s.

The PSA Group’s spokesman has confirmed that it will be using Opel’s technology in the forthcoming model of its best-selling Corsa car, which is currently based on General Motor’s technology.

Opel had previously stated that the next model of Corsa, which was slated for release in 2019 would also be based on GM’s technology. However, now it has decided to switch over to Peugeot’s technology, since it allows for higher margins, said Allgemeine Zeitung Mainz in its online edition.

PSA, which agreed to acquire Opel in March, did not immediately respond to requests for comments.

The upcoming version of the Corsa will be Opel’s fourth joint project with PSA and will be manufactured at Opel’s largest manufacturing site, in Saragossa, Spain.
