Malaysian Chevrolet distributor Naza Quest Sdn Bhd have revealed that they will be launching the Chevrolet Orlando 7-seater MPV in Malaysia in the second half of 2011. The Chevrolet Orlando is built upon the Chevrolet Cruze’s chassis with a stretched 2,760mm wheelbase, similar to how the Honda Stream and the Toyota Wish are also derived from C-segment platforms.
While most of its competitors are quite rounded and curvy, the Chevrolet Orlando stands out in its segment with its American style buff angular design – very much like a box!
Globally, three different engines are available with the Orlando – a 141 PS 1.8 litre petrol engine similar to the one found in the Cruze as well as two 2.0 litre turbodiesel engines in two different tunes – 130 PS or 163 PS. There’s also a large 2.4 litre petrol engine for North America. Naza Quest did not say which engine options they are bringing in – a diesel would definitely be nice!
Look after the jump for a photo gallery of the Orlando.
