First shots of seven-seat MPV, due on sale in 2011
26 January 2010

These are the first spy pictures of the Chevrolet Orlando seven-seat MPV, which will go on sale in 2011.

The Chevrolet Orlando is based on the Delta platform that underpins the new Cruze, and it will share styling and design cues with the GMC Granite, which was unveiled at this year's Detroit motor show.

So far the Orlando has only been shown as a concept car, which was powered by a 148bhp two-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with 236lb ft of pulling power.

Production engines are expected to include 1.6-litre turbocharged and 1.8-litre petrols plus 135bhp and 150bhp diesels.

At the time of the concept's launch in 2008, company officials said that that it will probably only be slightly modified before going on sale, which will mean it keeps its distinctive blocky styling.

It's expected to score with buyers for its highly competitive price and equipment mix.

I think they better keep the disguise on this as I get the sinking feeling it will look even more horrible in the metal. Who are these cars designed by these days Daewoo's old design team.

Ah thats it Chevvy merged or purchased Daewoo didnt they ?

Think I will give this motor a miss.

Apologies to Mr McLean.

Where has all Japanese design went to?

I can vouch for that Zeddy. I have a top of the range Chevy product, 18 months old. It's trash.

Never again.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
