General Motors introduced the front-wheel drive GM4200 platform in 1983 with the introductions of two subcompacts, the Opel Corsa A and the Vauxhall Nova. The platform was also used by Holden, Chevrolet's Latin American branch, and Buick of China. The platform is still in use today by Chevrolet's Latin American branch for their entry-level models.
