The 2019 Opel Corsa F is likely in for some major changes when it arrives in a few years. We say that because, if you’ve been under a rock, General Motors sold off the Opel and Vauxhall divisions to France’s PSA Groupe. That means all Opels and Vauxhalls will eventually switch over to PSA platforms and utilize the French automaker’s technology at hand.
The biggest (and best) news for locals who have spent time with the Corsa is the fact the touchscreen seems to have been moved further up on the center stack. Currently, the touchscreen infotainment unit is low and means drivers need to look away from the road to work the system. The Corsa F will likely remedy this.
In typical prototype fashion, there’s a mix of current Corsa E parts scattered with new pieces under development and draped in camouflage. It’s also likely the production Corsa F will receive a completely digital instrument cluster, thanks to PSA. The French automaker recently introduced its i-Cockpit on the Peugeot 3008 and the subcompact 208 may be next in line to receive it, at least as optional equipment.
Expect other pieces to be shared with the Peugeot 208 as PSA works to bring as many components from the 208 into the Corsa F to shift away from GM-derived parts and boost its economies of scale.
