Verdict

The Suzuki Swift 1.0 Boosterjet aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1000 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

There is a small chance of snaking at higher speeds, strong side winds and thoughtless driving. Even if the combination normally feels stable, the forces by deflection side to side are great at high speed. For drivers with knowledge of, and experience in driving a caravan it is safe to drive, but proper and careful loading is still important! An electronic stability system in the car and / or on the caravan is worth considering.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general more than sufficient. Under most conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 3400 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed 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 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 60 mph. 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 28% not to drive.
