If you’re looking to cut mpg figures, you probably won’t be looking at cars that cost over 50 grand. That said, our favourite luxury car isn’t too thirsty considering its size and weight – it drinks less fuel than a 2.0-litre Volkswagen Beetle. Even if you’re not too concerned about getting your wallet out, the potential 673-mile range will save the hassle of stopping frequently.
