Verdict

The Mazda 6 SkyActiv-G 145 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1290 kg is a good combination for journeys on most kinds of roads, sometimes with some limitations in the mountains.

Weight

There is a small chance of snaking at higher speeds, strong side winds and thoughtless driving. Even if the combination normally feels stable, the forces by deflection side to side are great at high speed. For drivers with knowledge of, and experience in driving a caravan it is safe to drive, but proper and careful loading is still important! An electronic stability system in the car and / or on the caravan is worth considering.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general fairly good. Under most conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 3100 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 58 mph. In the 2th gear the top speed is 64 mph (6213 rpm). Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 13%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 19% to drive.

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