Verdict

The Mazda 6 SkyActiv-G 165 aut. 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 all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 3300 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 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 58 mph. In the 3th gear the top speed is 75 mph (6114 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 39%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 29% not to drive.
