What car should I buy after owning a Saab?

We will have to change our car next year and I am struggling to find one that is as spacious, comfortable and efficient as my current diesel Saab 9-3 twin turbo. We get about 53mpg and looking at the Honest John Real mpg section of the website, new cars do not seem to be as good. I would like to avoid BMW and the driving position in the Jaguar XE & XF are a little cramped.
