Chevrolet Orlando

The production version of the Orlando has been revealed at the Paris motor show and it's Chevrolet's first MPV for the European market.

What is it?
This seven-seat MPV is based on the existing Cruze saloon and wears the now-familiar company 'face', but it also has a distinct 'crossover' feel.

The cabin has what the manufacturer calls a dual-cockpit concept, inspired by the Corvette sports car, with blue backlighting on the centre console. The seven seats are arranged in three rows, with each row higher than the one in front to give occupants a good view out, and theres a wide variety of seating configurations.

Hide and seek
There will be plenty of storage spaces throughout the car, including cubbies in the centre console, doors, boot and roof. There's also one hidden behind the face of the audio system, which flips up to reveal a USB port and enough space for an MP3 player, sunglasses or a wallet.

The car will to go on sale in the UK early next year, and buyers will be able to choose from three engines: a 139bhp 1.8-litre petrol unit and two versions of a 2.0-litre diesel, with either 129- or 161bhp.

There will also be four trim levels, and standard equipment across the range will include electronic stability control, six airbags, air-conditioning and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors.
