Number of useful calculations

The towing limit is exceeded by 50 kg! It is not allowed to drive with this Caravan. Make sure the towing limit is correct. For the conclusions from the following calculation makes nothing, although it sounds weird when we say that it is a good combination while actually legally overweight.

Verdict as the caravan would not be legaly too heavy

The Alfa Romeo Mito 1.4 Turbo and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 550 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 very good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 6th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2700 rpm. 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 6th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 60 mph but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 5th gear). In the 4th gear the top speed is 77 mph (5015 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 34%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 28% 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!
