Advice with maximum weight

We do not recommend towing a caravan that is heavier than 1400 kg kg with this Car.

In this advice we assume an average caravan with a weight of 1400 kg. Remember that the exact performance depends on the chosen caravan and that air resistance and dimensions have an influence.

Performance
Weight

The Car as an example with a Caravan as an example with an actual weight of 1400 kg is in general a good match and suitable for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

The motor preformance of the Car is in general more than sufficient. But the weight of the Caravan with a normally distributed User Payload (200 kg in the caravan and 200 kg in the car including passengers), is quite heavy. Proper and careful loading is essential and don't drive too fast. Remember to load your caravan correctly, insuring that the noseweight of the caravan is sufficient and the weight is distributed properly!

If the caravan starts to snake you should reduce your speed and slow down directly! Lift your feet off the accelerator and brake gradually. Hold the steering wheel into a fixed position.
