Chevrolet has announced prices and more information about its Orlando MPV.

The seven-seat people-carrier goes on sale in spring 2011, and it set to compete with the likes of the Ford Grand C-Max and the Mazda5.

An entry level Orlando LS gets ESC, air conditioning, follow-me-home headlights, electric mirrors and front windows, remote central locking, six airbags, three 12v power sockets, tinted windows and an adjustable steering wheel.

The LS starts at £16,395, which nets you the 1.8-litre petrol derivative making 141bhp. It emits 172g/km CO2, equating to a 23% P11d value. Company car drivers on the 20% tax band will pay an annual tax of £740.14, while people paying 40% will pay £1,480.28. There's also a 2.0-litre diesel with 130bhp, costing £17,645 new which equates to a year's tax of £802.01 and £1,604.02 on the 20% and 40% pay bands respectively.

Next up is the LT, which comes with more kit such as USB connectivity, 16-inch alloys, rear parking sensors, electric rear windows, front fog lights and an upgraded sound system. There's a choice of three engines for this model, with the addition of the fastest engine in the range, the163bhp 2.0-litre diesel. This engine is available with an automatic gearbox only, and emits 186g/km CO2 which puts it into the 29% BIK tax band.

The top of the range is the LTZ, which gets 17-inch alloys, automatic cruise control, electro-chromatic rear view mirror, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, blue ambient panel lighting, power-folding wing mirrors and a rear cargo net. Prices for the LTZ start at £18,195 and rise to £21,195.

If you've plumped for the diesel LTZ an extra £2,000 will get you the Executive Pack, including full leather interior, heated front seats sat nav and 18-inch alloy wheels. The highest specification Orlando will cost you £23,195, which works out at £1,317.47 each year on the 20% pay scale and £2,634.94 on the 40% pay scale.
