Verdict

The DS DS7 Crossback PureTech 130 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1255 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 good. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 6th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2200 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 2600 rpm.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 4th gear with 50 mph up hill. In the 3th gear the top speed is 67 mph (5116 rpm). Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 18%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!
