Verdict

The Fiat 500L TwinAir 105 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 550 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

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 5th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 3100 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 4th gear. The engine runs approximately 4000 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

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 62 mph (5741 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 21%. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
