Verdict

The Vauxhall Grandland X Hybrid 4x4 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1250 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 8th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2000 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 7th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 89 mph but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 6th gear). In the 6th gear the top speed is 96 mph (4888 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 88%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 54% 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!
