Verdict

The Suzuki Jimny 1.5 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 fairly good. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear, by giving the engine nearly full throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 3100 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 4th gear. The engine runs approximately 3700 rpm.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 61 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 16%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 25% to drive.
