Verdict

The Hyundai Grandeur 3.3i V6 aut. and the Swift Sprite Major 4 EB of a laden weight of 1475 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 good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear. 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 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 71 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 28%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 21% 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!

Reviews

The Hyundai towing a Swift Sprite Major 4 EB (1475) kg reviewed by merlin:

I pull a Swift Major EB4 with my Hundi and I'm really happy to report that it does it without much dificulity.
Stability is usually fine, but side winds can make it a bit interesting at times.
Headwinds certainly make the fuel consumption shoot up. from a 9.1 ltr/100km to a rather depressing 16.4 ltr.
Once or twice I have a few shakes but I put that down to wind rather than anything else, but it does come through at the front end which can make it feel like it's taking over the car. If you're not used to it then it can be a bit scary,
The only thing I'd say which is a negative is driving the car isn't much different to driving it without a caravan behind you, so you can forget that you are towing!
