Again go for the diesel, but consider the top-spec LTZ model with sat nav since you won’t be paying much more of a premium to secure one. We think that this will be a fantastic second-hand buy and there’s every chance you’ll bag a bargain because of Chevy’s weak residuals. Clearly, you want one with a low mileage and a decent service history. Have a look at the service record and check for noises coming from the suspension and running gear.
When we drove the new Orlando over potted roads the suspension sounded crashy so it could be a weak point on used examples.
The Orlando won’t sell in huge numbers in the UK since it's slightly off a lot of people’s radars: the default choices being the Ford and the Renault and maybe even the Kia Sedona. This is the first time Chevrolet has built an MPV but we expect most Orlandos to fetch 35% of the original purchase price after three years/30,000 miles.
