The seven-seater Orlando is based on the Cruze platform and there will be one petrol engine available, a 1.8 litre with power output of 141bhp and two diesel units, the latest version of Chevrolet's 2.0 litre engine with outputs of 131bhp (low output) or 163bhp (high output).

Wayne Brannon, president and managing director for Chevrolet Europe, said: “The new Orlando MPV kicks off an ambitious seven-product launch program over the next 15 months.

"We're confident the Orlando not only brings great value for money to the MPV class but also something fresh - function with attitude if you like - and the opportunity for us to continue building our volume across Europe. I believe it will also bring more new customers to the Chevrolet brand."

Customers will also be able to choose from four trim levels in the UK with standard equipment on all cars including electronic stability control, six air-bags, air conditioning and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors.

Full production of the Chevrolet Orlando starts in October with the car going on sale across Europe in early 2011.
