Verdict

The Citroen C4 Cactus PureTech 130 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 900 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 5th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2600 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 5th gear with 50 mph up hill but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 4th gear). In the 3th gear the top speed is 70 mph (5066 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 22%. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
