It looks like Opel and its sister company from Britain, Vauxhall, will give the current, fourth-generation Corsa supermini that has been in production since 2006 an extension in life with a mild facelift.
GM's European division was likely led to the decision to update instead of replace the aging Corsa due to its own financial troubles as well as the tough economic environment in the Old Continent that has plagued sales in most countries.
On the outside, the visual tweaks are limited to the front end that appears to gain a newly styled front grille split by Opel's chromed logo, similar to the one featured on the new Adam premium city car.
The Adam also influenced the interior revisions with the updated Corsa sporting a newly designed center console with a more modern interface and from what we can tell, a new instrument panel.
We could see the facelifted Corsa as early as the Geneva auto show in March, but it's more likely to appear at the Frankfurt motor show later in the fall.
