Verdict

The Citroen C5 Aircross HDi 130 aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1110 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 very good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 7th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2100 rpm. 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 6th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 58 mph. In the 5th gear the top speed is 65 mph (3456 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 53%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 43% not to drive.
