Verdict

The Mitsubishi L200 DC 2.4 DI-D+ aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1650 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. In that case the engine runs approximately 2000 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 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 71 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 39%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 26% 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!
