GM decided to field a few different cars in the supermini market in the early 1980s. Its first was the S-car, the Opel Corsa A, which would fight in the sector from 1982 (the Suzuki Cultus would be rebadged a Chevrolet and Holden in other markets). The Corsa effectively took over from the Opel Kadett City on the Continent and the Vauxhall Chevette in the UK, and proved successful for the company. In 1993, the second generation débuted with cute curves, and this car formed the backbone of GM’s small-car operations even in México, South America and Red China. An evolutionary model came in 2000. This Corsa C still made it to multiple markets, such as Brazil and South Africa. In 2006 Opel’s Corsa D was developed in cooperation with Fiat, sharing a platform with its Grande Punto. Corsa E was a heavily revised D. Following PSA’s takeover of Opel, the Corsa F was the first all-new passenger car to début, on a platform shared with the second-generation Peugeot 208.
