It’s a reasonably priced, spacious and practical people carrier that puts function over form. The brick-inspired design might not be to everyone’s tastes but one might consider that a trifling price to pay for a decent school-runner that won’t break the bank. The Orlando – the new kid of the MPV block, complete with a five-year/100,000-mile warranty and attractive ownership benefits – may not have the reputation of rivals such as Ford’s Grand C-Max, Renault’s Grand Scenic, Citroen’s Grand Picasso, but they don’t boast a £16,345 entry level price and the kit levels offered by the new Chevrolet seven-seater.

Does the Orlando have the edge over the grand masters of the MPV market? Read on to find out.
