Chevrolet Orlando 2011

If there is a segment where manufacturers have invested heavily in recent times is that of the minivan. And is that the greatest space requirements for drivers have led to the appearance of numerous vehicles with an ever wider cabin and versatile. The truth is that, being thus cornered the market, it might seem a daring that a brand like Chevrolet is just now decided to take their first steps in this segment.

Does it come too late? A priori, one might say yes, but once we look at the design, capabilities and value for money for the new Orlando, our impression can vary greatly. And this model is that bets on a very personal image and great features which will require more than one to make room on their list of candidates for next vehicle for the whole family.

The interior of the Chevrolet Orlando offers seating for seven passengers, can bring down the third row of seats and hide under the soil to increase the luggage capacity to 420 liters with five seats. Note that the second row of seats allows longitudinal displacement, so this model can not boast too much modularity. And is that the section of seats is perhaps the least satisfactory of the vehicle, it also slightly reduced visibility with rear headrests of the driver.

On the mechanical side, we highlight the most powerful engine in the range, which is none other than a 2-liter turbodiesel. Its power is around 163 hp, more than enough to move with agility the weighing 1,730 kilos Orlando. This equipment, combined with a gearbox six-speed manual, offers good acceleration when overtaking, a sound more than acceptable and excellent performance on paths with many curves.
