Daewoo to Develop Next GM Small-Car Platform

The next litter of Opel Corsas, Chevy Aveos and their purt' near identical siblings the Matiz and Kalos will be built on GM's new Gamma platform, to be developed by the General's colonel in Korea, Daewoo. The Korean division considers it quite a feather in the cap, as the last Corsa was developed in Germany. With GM's cost-cutting measures taking effect, we imagine that the decision to develop the car in Korea was somewhat of a no-brainer for the RenCen types.
