Verdict

The Fiat Doblo 1.6 Multijet 120 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 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 2000 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 6th gear with 50 mph up hill but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 5th gear). In the 4th gear the top speed is 67 mph (3462 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 36%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
