Verdict

The Toyota RAV4 2.5 Hybrid 2WD and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 800 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 8th gear, by giving the engine just a bit of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 3200 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 8th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 73 mph. In the 6th gear the top speed is 80 mph (5344 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 38%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 37% not to drive.

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