Puzzle for you. The Jaguar XJ 3.0 V6 Diesel Luxury rockets to 62mph in 6.4 seconds. Its kerb-weight is 1,796KG, and it is over five metres long. In contrast, the MINI Countryman One Auto hits 62mph in a comparatively sluggish 13.9 seconds. Its kerb-weight is only 1,370KG, and this run-around is over one metre shorter than the striking Jaguar. So, which of these cars is the most fuel efficient? Logic suggests the MINI, of course, but the XJ is the winner. As such, it averages 40.1mpg compared to 39.2. The Jag is also more frugal on an extra-urban run. That is remarkable considering the relative speed, weight, and size.

The Jaguar XJ 3.0 V6 Diesel Luxury has other merits to complement its surprising frugality. The six-speed automatic transmission is smooth and responsive, the ride is supreme, and the styling is bang up-to-date. The XJ looks fantastic, even though it is not as instantly recognisable as previous versions. This 275bhp four-door saloon also has tremendous handling and plenty of toys. Features include: MP3 connectivity, Bluetooth, parking sensors, cruise control, and luxurious leather seats. It even has a 520-litre boot, which is larger than the MINI's 'seat-up' capacity. No wonder this XJ costs £55,515. Ouch!
