Verdict

The Kia Rio 1.4 cvvt aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 800 kg is a combination just suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general just sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 3th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 3700 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 2th gear. The engine runs approximately 5800 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 2th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 60 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 21%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 16% not to drive.

Results

The main details in a list. Ideal for comparing different combinations with one another, for example your present with a new one.
