When Orlando will be made avialble in India. As such I was planning to buy Cruz. If it's coming shortly then I can wait for OrlandoOctober 22, 2011by Suhas Jayawant
This is the car which can do wonders for Chevrolet in India.
People are really bored with Innova now...& the new Innova coming with a little cosmetic changes looks worse than the current Innova.So if Chevrolet gets this Orlando in that price range (10 to 14 Lacs) it will do wonders as the Indian car buyers in that segment will prefer an international brand over a local Tata or Mahindra badge when they are spending so much.October 18, 2011by Amit Doshi
I like it to much and I really waiting for this carOctober 08, 2011by Amrinder Singh Sahni
