Verdict

The Peugeot 2008 1.2 PureTech 130 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 8th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2000 rpm. Maybe the engine is not running smoothly at low revs so it is better to shiftdown to the 7th gear, the engine runs in that case 2400 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 7th gear. The engine runs approximately 2400 rpm.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 6th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 61 mph. In the 4th gear the top speed is 70 mph (5121 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 63%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 49% not to drive.
