Default 407 1.6 HDi towing ability

Being a keen camper ive been trying to persuade the mrs that a caravan is the way forward and she's finally succumbed to my sales tactics!

Anyway i need to buy a 5 berth van owing to having three kids under seven and was wondering what the max towing weight is on the SW 1.6 HDi and how does it do when towing seen as its just a puny 1.6. Mine has been remapped to about 130bhp btw.

Hi I have a C5 est with the 1.6 hdi engine and it's the best towcar i've ever had . I tow an ACE Rallyman 2 berth weighing about 970kg . I use cruise control a lot when towing I find it makes a big difference.

ooohhh right cant really comment on the 1.6 as mines a 2.0 and tows my van superbly BUT the 1.6 in standard trim is 110bhp isnt it??? thats the same bhp as the 406 2.0 hdi which was an excellent towcar i believe. As yours is a little more than standard and all your towing is 1300kg max it should pull like a train, my 2.0 pulls my 1545kg caravan like its not there
