Verdict

The Kia Sorento I - 2.5 CRDi VGT aut. and the Bailey Pageant Bordeaux of a laden weight of 1321 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 5th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 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 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 66 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 32%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 24% not to drive.

Results

The main details in a list. Ideal for comparing different combinations with one another, for example your present with a new one.

The Kia towing a Bailey Pageant Bordeaux (1374) kg reviewed by Pauline Harvey:

The Kia towing a Bailey Pageant Bordeaux series 7.

This outfit handles really well. I dont even feel the van on the back. We are getting 25/26mpg at around 1900revs. I would highly recommend this car for towing.

The Kia towing a Adria Adora Plus 642 UP (1670) kg reviewed by alan clift:

I have the '07 XT auto.have towed only a couple of hundred miles so far and found it excellent and well capable of towing a heavy caravan,love the cruise control,and the auto box,had a manual before so was pleased how easy it is compared to having to change gear regularly,fuel consumption with 75% towing is around 26mpg,far better than my last car.

The Kia towing a Elddis Crusader Super Scirocco (1780) kg reviewed by philip.davies1@gmail.com:

Got the sorento XT second hand and 5 years old with 40,000 miles on the clock to pull a Elddis Avante twin axle. Have covered over 10,000 miles around Europe so far and apart from the tyres wearing down and the odd puff of black smoke when going over mountains etc its fine. Mpg is averaging 26 and that's a split of 80% towing. Very comfortable vehicle which chuggs along at 60 mph all day.
