Practical, comfortable and fun to drive. The new 2012 Chevrolet Orlando is the ideal family vehicle.

It lets you carry up to seven people. It’s a nimble driving machine both in tight corners and on the open road. It’s good with gas, but gives you the power you need. And it’s great to look at.

After you’ve taken this sneak peek at the brand new 2012 Chevrolet Orlando, there’s a good chance that you’ll discover that it’s the ideal family vehicle.

Let’s be practical – starting with seating for seven

Orlando offers a big interior that seats seven, thanks to standard third-row seating. So it can handle major family outings, or hauling the kids and their friends to soccer games. Or, with fold-flat seats in both the second and third row, you can handle massive amounts of cargo after you’ve loaded up at the local big box store.

Orlando’s got lots of extra compartments and storage areas that are very accessible and very smart, such as space behind the radio – just flip up the radio faceplate to store things like your phone or wallet.

Another great practical touch with Orlando is the child-view mirror under the rearview mirror. So now, when you’re driving, you can safely keep an eye on what’s going on in the back seat. The kids might believe you really do have eyes in the back of your head.

Of course safety is more important than anything else

Chevrolet designers know that, when you’ve got a family, their safety and security always come first. So we designed Orlando with the essential tools to provide you with the peace of mind you need when you’re driving. Things like four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, StabiliTrak® and Traction Control, headrests for every seat, and six airbags.

And it’s good to know that standard OnStar® with six months of the “Directions & Connections” package will provide you with welcome reassurance if you’re ever in a sticky situation.

A surprisingly nimble driving experience

With a tight turning radius, Orlando gives you a lot of agility, something you're sure to appreciate when you’re navigating a tightly packed parking lot at the mall, or trying to park in front of a busy school.

And that maneuverability is paired with power, thanks to Orlando’s fuel efficient 2.4 litre direct-injected engine. Any parent who really enjoys driving is going to love that kind of performance.

Style, practicality and performance – Orlando puts it all together

Orlando is perfect for those weekend getaways with the family, a quick trip to the grocery store or a private evening out on the town. To understand how perfectly it fits into your life, all you have to do is look. Inside and out, Orlando’s design takes family vehicles to a whole new level.

Maybe that’s the ultimate reason why it’s the perfect family vehicle. Because as much as it works for all your family needs, when you’re behind the wheel, Orlando also speaks to your inner driver, the one who came before all the responsibility and soccer games and commuting. And when you’re a parent, what could be better?
