A sneak peek at Chevy’s Orlando

The Chevy Orlando

“On a recent visit to GM’s research and design facility in Korea we got a sneak peek at quite an important Chevrolet which will be reaching our shores early in 2011.

It’s called the Orlando, is based on the Cruze sedan, and is the American automaker’s answer to the likes of the Nissan Livina, Toyota Verso and Mazda5. Unveiled earlier in 2010 at the Paris auto show, the seven-seater is Chev’s latest entrant in the MPV segment and first impressions are good.” – read the full IOL Motoring article
