BERLIN Oct 27 (Reuters) - German truck maker MAN SE posted higher third-quarter profit as demand in Europe for heavy-duty commercial vehicles keeps growing.

Operating profit at Volkswagen-owned MAN rose 5 percent to 86 million euros ($95 million) while orders fell 9 percent to 3.16 billion euros, the Munich-based company said.

Full-year operating profit at MAN will be "significantly hit" by restructuring costs while sales will drop slightly below year-ago levels, the company said on Tuesday, keeping to its July guidance. ($1 = 0.9046 euros) (Reporting by Andreas Cremer; Editing by Georgina Prodhan)
