New Chevy Orlando MPV: Sneak Peek of the Interior

By some act of dark magic, we've found ourselves with some shots of a few upcoming GM Paris debuts. In this case, we're talking about the Orlando compact MPV which comes with stadium seating for seven. Despite its having lost some of the concept's original chunk, the interior is actually quite appealing. As expected, the dash looks very similar to the concept's layout.

Also, looking at the live shots of the minivan's exterior, its rear-end doesn't appear to ride nearly as high as the initial pics would suggest. We'll have to wait for some high-res close-ups before THE FINAL JUDGEMENT, though.

After its reveal in Paris, the Cruze-based Orlando MPV will show up in Europe early next year with three engine options: a 1.8-liter gasoline unit (141 horsepower) or the 2.0-liter diesel with low- or high-output (131 and 163 horsepower, respectively). No torque figures have been revealed yet, but color me antsy in the pantsy about that high-output diesel...
