Verdict

The Fiat 500X 1.3 aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1200 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 very good. Under most conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 6th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2200 rpm. In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 5th gear with 50 mph up hill but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 4th gear). In the 3th gear the top speed is 68 mph (5733 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 26%, if the 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!
