Most drivers will be able to get comfortable because the steering wheel adjusts for reach and rake, and the seat can be cranked up and down. However, it can take time to get the backrest exactly where you want it because you have to pull a lever and shift your weight. Forward vision is good, but the view over your shoulder is limited. Some of the dash controls aren’t particularly intuitive.
Chevrolet ORLANDO MPV space & practicality
There’s loads of room in the first two rows, while kids and smaller adults will be happy enough in the third. However, the Orlando isn’t as flexible as the best MPVs because its middle row is split 60/40 instead of into three individual seats. Both parts are designed to tumble forward so you can get to the rear from either side of the car, but there isn’t enough room to tumble them when the front seats are positioned for six-footers – annoying.
Chevrolet ORLANDO MPV equipment
Entry-level LS models come with air-con, electric windows and door mirrors, remote central locking and three 12v power sockets, but you have to upgrade to LT trim to get parking sensors, alloy wheels and climate control (it’s not dual-zone). Next up is LTZ trim, which adds cruise control, automatic lights and wipers and ambient interior lighting. Buyers of diesel-engined LTZ cars can also specify a Premium pack that brings leather upholstery, heated front seats and satellite-navigation.
