The Opel Corsa will have a new infotainment system

Opel and supplier Robert Bosch have developed a new all-in-one infotainment system that will combine audio, navigation and communications functions in the new Opel Corsa.

The multimedia infotainment system, which is called "Touch & Connect," features a five-inch color touch screen, seven 4x20 watt loudspeakers, full navigation coverage for 28 countries, Bluetooth, iPod and USB connections.

A phone's telephone directory will be automatically available as soon as the phone is connected via Bluetooth. Audio data, including music, can also be streamed from the phone to the system via Bluetooth.

Controls can be operated through the touchscreen or via regular knobs. The radio has a double digital tuner that is particularly well suited for Traffic Message Channel reception.

The radio will also transmit traffic impediments when navigation is not switched on.
