Chevrolet's value for money approach in the UK proves successful after its Towcar awards result.
Chevrolet’s first ever European MPV has received a ringing endorsement at the latest Towcar awards after it was named ‘Best Value Towcar’.
Chevrolet has been on the peripheries of the UK market place despite its popularity and reputation in North America and as a result its most recent models have looked to provide more ‘car for your money’ by undercutting the price of many of its rivals.
The tactic seems to have paid off with the Orlando seven-seat MPV after judges from Practical Caravan and What Car? christened the burly American as the best value towcar in the UK with a start price of £16,410.
Practical Caravan editor, Nigel Donnelly, said: “You get a lot of car for your money with the Chevrolet Orlando. It’s very stable, has plenty of space for a family’s luggage and is sturdily built. It’s an impressively roomy and capable towcar."
The Orlando comes with robust styling features and chunky details which put its appearance more in line with SUVs than typical MPVs as the GM-owned brand looks to offer a more premium car at lower prices to stimulate Chevy sales in the UK.
To that end it comes with three comprehensive specification lists and three competent engines comprising of a 1.8-litre range-opening petrol unit two 2.0-litre diesel powertrains ranging from 130bhp to 160bhp.
“The Orlando already encapsulates everything the family motorist would want from a car, so to receive recognition for its towing ability, and from such prestigious publications and organisations, is a real bonus. It’s yet another area in which the Orlando excels, not to mention its tremendous value for money," said Chevrolet’s National Sales Manager, Daniel Gregorious.
