Looks heavy for a 1.8L petrol engine. If fully loaded with passengers & barang barang....i think the engine will struggle.
Sad, only one option for the engine. Too bad sgp diesel road tax sucks, otherwise the Euro spec 2.0L turbodiesel will be a better option.
wonder if it's the same 1.8L from the Cruze? if it is, confirm win award for the world's slowest SUV. coz oredi 1.8L in the cruze CMI.

I thought GM will be phasing out the 1.8NA 140bhp engine to be replaced by the 1.4T 140bhp engine instead?
Alpine should request for the 1.6T 180bhp engine to be in the Orlando and Cruze instead.
I really don't think the 140bhp is enough for what it essentially is a 7-seater vehicle [be it a 5+2 or a full 7-seater, which I doubt it is].
And at such prices, thanks to the high CAT B COE, I seriously doubt it'll sell well, this Orlando.
Then again, speaking of the Citroen C4GP, when the 2.0L engine was replaced with the 1.6T 140bhp years ago, it was pretty popular considering it's selling at the same price as a Wish 2.0L then.
But it seems that I hardly see the C4GP on the road now. Where did they all go? And it's not as if the owners traded-in for the Peugeot 5008 with a conventional 6-sp Auto gearbox [the C4GP is using the 6EGS- automated manual gearbox]. The 5008 is even rarer.....
And the Toyota Wish is still a pretty common sight on our roads!
