Verdict

The Peugeot 308 CC 1.6 THP aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1270 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 favourable 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 2200 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 2700 rpm.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 61 mph. In the 3th gear the top speed is 68 mph (5704 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 36%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 31% 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!
