Verdict

The Vauxhall Vivaro Cargo S 2.0 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 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 5th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 68 mph but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 4th gear). In the 4th gear the top speed is 69 mph (3347 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 35%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 31% not to drive.
