Verdict

The Volvo V60 CC B5 AWD and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1590 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

There is a small chance of snaking at higher speeds, strong side winds and thoughtless driving. Even if the combination normally feels stable, the forces by deflection side to side are great at high speed. For drivers with knowledge of, and experience in driving a caravan it is safe to drive, but proper and careful loading is still important! An electronic stability system in the car and / or on the caravan is worth considering.

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 2200 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 6th gear with 50 mph up hill but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 5th gear). In the 4th gear the top speed is 83 mph (4543 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 43%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 33% 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!
