Prices announced for Chevrolet's new Orlando MPV

Chevrolet confirms official specs and prices for the Orlando MPV, with the entry level petrol starting at £16,395.

Chevrolet has named its price for the new Orlando MPV. The American brand has confirmed that its new seven-seater people carrier will cost from £16,395 when it arrives in the UK at the end of February.

Three trim levels and three engines will be available, including a pair of diesels to choose from. The entry level Orlando is badged LS, and gets air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors, six airbags, three 12v power sockets, tinted windows and an adjustable steering wheel as standard.

All models also benefit from Chevy’s family-friendly second rear-view mirror, so those in the front can keep an eye on rear-seat passengers, plus a hidden cubby hole behind the stereo designed to keep iPods away from prying eyes.

The LS is available with the 141PS 1.8-litre petrol engine, or a new 130PS 2.0-litre diesel unit, the latter of which also comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard.

The mid-range LT model adds rear parking distance sensors, a USB port, 16-inch alloy wheels, climate control, and an upgraded sound system with steering wheel audio controls, while the top-spec LTZ gets 17-inch alloys, automatic cruise control, and automatic headlights and wipers.

The LS is available with the 139bhp 1.8-litre petrol engine, or a new 128bhp 2.0-litre diesel, while both the LT and LTZ versions can be had with an additional 161bhp 2.0-litre diesel, which returns exactly the same economy and emissions figures as the lower-powered version, getting 47.1mpg and 159g/km of C02 respectively.

Buyers of diesel-engined LTZ Orlandos can opt for the Executive Pack. It costs £2,000 and includes full leather upholstery, heated front seats, satellite navigation and 18-inch alloy wheels.
