Verdict

The Suzuki Jimny 1.5 aut. 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 more than sufficient. Under most conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 3th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 4300 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) it is barely possible to drive in the 3th gear with 50 mph up hill. In the 2th gear the top speed is 55 mph (6244 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 28%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 21% not to drive.
