Verdict

The Audi A7 55 TFSI and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1590 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

The chance of snaking is relatively small at normal speed, if the caravan is well loaded.

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, by giving the engine just a bit of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2300 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 5th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 73 mph but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 4th gear). In the 4th gear the top speed is 94 mph (5218 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 25%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!
