Verdict

The Vauxhall Crossland X 1.2 Turbo 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 very good. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 6th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2000 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 2600 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 5th gear with 50 mph up hill but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 4th gear). In the 3th gear the top speed is 70 mph (5498 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 47%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 37% not to drive.
