Chevy joins the MPV fray
Chevrolet's exclusive distributor in the Philippines, The Covenant Car Company Inc., has just annoucned that the new Orlando MPV is now available in dealerships.
The Chevrolet Orlando is the brand's first foray into the 7-seater MPV segment. Orlando's design – part MPV, part crossover – stretches the rules of a normally conservative segment, making a unique style statement in the class.
While the exterior of the new Chevrolet Orlando is sure to attract plenty of attention, the interior too features many of the latest design cues from Chevrolet such as the Corvette-inspired dual cockpit and ambient blue backlighting to the centre console. Distinctive design is nothing without well-thought-out functionality however, so the 'theater-style' seating arrangement of the Orlando's three rows of seats, the generous load area and the numerous storage solutions will also grab the attention of family motorists.
The new Orlando comes with a 1.8 liter, DOHC 16-valve inline-4 with dual CVVT. The engine produces 141 horsepower (metric) and is matched with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Orlando is priced at PhP 1,188,888.
