Verdict

The Citroen C-Crosser 2.4 aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1460 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

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 very good. Under most 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 2600 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) driving is easily possible in the 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 65 mph. In the 3th gear the top speed is 70 mph (6231 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 25%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 19% 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!
