We may have a chance to buy the second-gen Chevrolet Orlando 2018 in the Philippines. This will happen if Chevrolet PH agrees to get the new gen from SAIC-GM - also the source of the Chevrolet Sail in the local market.

The 2nd-gen Orlando is said to evoke “spirit of youth, sport, and innovation.” Compared to its predecessor, the new one gets a longer wheelbase with 2,796 mm. This roomy SUV offers 3 seating rows. The foldable second row is equipped with a one-touch folding mechanism to the 3rd row while the third can offer 479 liters more in cabin space when being folded.

Even when no row is folded, the Orlando can house up to two 20’’ suitcases or 3 big backpacks.
