Verdict

The Toyota Yaris 1.5 VVT-i and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 880 kg is a good combination for journeys except for journeys with slopes of more than 11%.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general just sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 3600 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 3th gear. The engine runs approximately 4900 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 56 mph. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 12%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 11% not to drive.
