Verdict

The Vauxhall Crossland X 1.2 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 650 kg is a combination just suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general moderate but for your use maybe sufficient.Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear, by giving the engine nearly full throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 3500 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 3th gear. The engine runs approximately 4800 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On motorway inclines the speed is slowing down and is in the 3th gear 49 mph the maximum speed. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 14%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 10% not to drive.
