Verdict

The Vauxhall Crossland X 1.6 CDTI Eco and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 840 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general fairly good. Under most conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2000 rpm. 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 4th gear with 50 mph up hill but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 3th gear). In the 3th gear the top speed is 61 mph (3568 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 21%. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
