Verdict

The Volkswagen Polo 1.0 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 800 kg is not a recommended combination to drive.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general very bad and insufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 3th gear, by giving the engine just a bit of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 4100 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 6200 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On motorway inclines the speed is slowing down and is in the 2th gear 49 mph the maximum speed. Hill starts are a bit difficult and not possible on slopes more than 7%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 14% 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.
