Verdict

The Renault Megane Blue dCi 115 aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1230 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

The chance of snaking is relatively small at normal speed, if the caravan is well loaded.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general fairly good. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 7th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 6th gear. The engine runs approximately 2200 rpm.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 59 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 23%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 22% not to drive.

Results

The main details in a list. Ideal for comparing different combinations with one another, for example your present with a new one.
