    Not necessarily. It's just that PSA want to get rid of paying fees for continuing to use GM platforms. So from around 2021/22 all New Opels/Vauxhalls will be built on PSA platforms. It may well be that new Opel/Vauxhall models will look different from the PSA models they will be based on (as is the case with the new Peugeot-based Vauxhall Crossland X and Grandland X models), but the platforms and underpinnings will be PSA.

    The Grand Sport is a brave and radical departure from what it replaced, but it remains to be seen how it is viewed once PSA take full control, although PSA were allegedly well pleased with the Grand Sport.

    A French take on the insignia would be interesting. Wonder if it would have hydrogas suspension like those massive Citorens have.

    Maybe only as an option, as is now the case on big Citroëns. A replacement based on the DS4/DS5 or the new Peugeot 508 would be interesting.

    It's worth noting that Opel at Rüsselsheim have been given the role of being in charge of all new R&D for new PSA engines and vehicles including Citroen Peugeot and DS as well as Opel, so there may be light at the end of the tunnel. In my view the new Grandland X which is a rebadged Peugeot 3008, but with an Opel 'face', does look so much better than the tired Mokka or the geriatric Zafira . And the new DS5 and Peugeot 508 are a step up from what preceded them. The assertion that VX/opel models can have a separate identity visually from their PSA counterparts may not be such a bad thing in the longer term.
