Chevrolet Orlando: the ground clearance is impressive, the engine is powerful. Minivan or SUV?
The designers of the American concern succeededmake on the platform of the car Chevrolet Cruze, which belongs to the classic class C, a compact minivan with pronounced exterior signs of the SUV. Indeed, Chevrolet Orlando, whose clearance is more than 150 mm, equipped with a rough-looking plastic protection on the bottom of the body and having developed wheel arches, is more like a crossover.
And yet this car is designed for a married couple witha large number of children - the number of seats, excluding the driver's seat, here six. The volume of the luggage compartment in this version is symbolic and amounts to just under 90 liters. Sequential transformation of the cabin with the folding of rows of seats alternately increases this figure to almost 900 liters and one and a half cubic meters, respectively.
Interior Features Chevrolet Orlando
The interior space of this compact is goodthought out and organized, there are a lot of small boxes for small items, which in a lot of cars accumulate over time a great many. A spacious interior combined with the outstanding road characteristics of the Chevrolet Orlando, the ground clearance, which allows to overcome obstacles without obstacles, makes the car very practical.
The power unit of the Russian version of thisThe car is presented by the gasoline engine with a working volume of 180 cu. cm, developing power over 140 hp. It fits well with both an automatic and a mechanical box. Both types of transmission have six stages, allowing the maximum use of the engine.

The manufacturer announces the expansion of the gammaengines in the future and it is supposed to be supplemented with a diesel engine with a turbo-supercharged two-liter capacity with a maximum capacity of over 130 and 160 forces. As many as two variants of high-speed diesel engines under the hood of Chevrolet Orlando, the clearance that is redundant for a city car, the heaped out look more and more approximates it to a full-fledged SUV.

Overclocking is also at an altitude - up to a full hundred the car accelerates slightly longer than in 10 seconds. Quite good. The fuel consumption for a fairly large and heavy car is small: in the version with a gasoline engine - 7 liters in the city flow.
Interesting is the fact that Chevrolet Orlando,the ground clearance of which is quite large, is supplied not only to our country, but also to the prosperous Old World, where the condition of the roads does not cause particular complaints. Apparently climate change and snowy winter have done their work, and the designers responded quickly to the changes.
