Live from the launch: Chevrolet Orlando

Tom Webster

Chevrolet is launching a huge swathe of products onto the European market in the next year, and the Orlando is the first to arrive.

A further six models will join it in 2011 – the new Captiva and Aveo, the Cruze hatchback, the Corvette and Camaro and, arguably most important of all, the Volt.

And if this seven-seat MPV is anything to go by the future, whilst perhaps not groundbreaking, is reasonably bright.
