Verdict

The Vauxhall Mokka - 1.6 CDTi and the Sprite Alpine 4 of a laden weight of 1234 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 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 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 63 mph. In the 3th gear the top speed is 65 mph (3915 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 21%. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.

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

Ive recently changed car to the Vauxhall Mokka 1.6 CDTi 136 bph with a maximum towing weight of 1500kg, just returned from a maiden voyage 600 mile round trip towing a Sprite Alpine 4 1200kg laden and was delighted with its performance, felt very stable and plenty of power rarley coming out of 6th on the motorway only to engage 5th when overtaking giving instant acceleration, all this and still returned 40 mpg, so very please with the Mokka
