Our 2.0 TDi PD140 Octavia gets 53+mpg (trip computer) all day every day with me driving. The missuse usually manages 43-47 The boot's huge, and you can get an estate too.

You could also look at Skoda Octavias. Depends how you feel about 5 seats really though as it's based on the Golf 4 floorpan, ISTR.
