Verdict

The Subaru XV 2.0i e-Boxer and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1270 kg is a good combination for journeys on most kinds of roads, sometimes with some limitations in the mountains.

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 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 2300 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 2800 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 65 mph. In the 2th gear the top speed is 66 mph (5804 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 23%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 17% not to drive.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!
