Verdict

The Fiat Tipo 1.6 aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1100 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 more than sufficient. Under most conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 3900 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 58 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 29%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 20% not to drive.
