Verdict

The Vauxhall Zafira Life 1.5 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1510 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

The chance of snaking is relatively small at normal speed, if the caravan is well loaded.

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 6th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. 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 55 mph. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 20%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
