2008 4dr Wagon turbocharged 210hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Better than 30 mpg on long trips, even with 75+mph average speeds as reported by the onboard computer. Fantastic given the performance available. see full Saab 9-3 review
2008 4dr Wagon turbocharged 180hp 1.9L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual FWD
4.7 litres per 100 km is a great mileage! see full Saab 9-3 review
2008 4dr Sedan turbocharged 210hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Very good considering the power. I average 32mpg doing mostly highway. I cruise at 75mph and like to rev the engine in the city. see full Saab 9-3 review
2008 4dr Sedan turbocharged 210hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
I have been a tad disappointed in my newest car's fuel economy. My tuned to 340 hp 1995 Saab 900 SE was getting 29 mpg in mixed city/highway driving. Currently I am driving 75% city and suburban surface streets and the rest highway. This must explain my rather pedestrian 23 mpg current average. I did get 33 mpg on a fast long road haul to the east coast. see full Saab 9-3 review

Lots of variations on fuel economy as you can read. Driving style will make a big difference, using a lot of engine power uses gas, no way around that. Try to cruise between 1800-2300rpm, it gives good results. Cars have improved a lot in the last years, no way a 7 year old design can match a 2015 model. But It comes close! see full Saab 9-3 review
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 210hp 2.0L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Over 30 mpg highway if you set the cruise to the speed limit. see full Saab 9-3 review
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 210hp 2.0L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
25 to 30 mpg on regular gas, depending on how many highway miles per tank. This is my first car that takes regular in more than ten years, at least $0.20 a gallon cheaper than premium. see full Saab 9-3 review

the frugal diesel engine is cheaper to run & better for the environment see full Saab 9-3 review

Great fuel economy (30mpg) for such a powerful car. see full Saab 9-3 review
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 210hp 2.0L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
For a car with pretty good performance, it has very good acceleration (a little faster or as fast as the V6 Honda), and gets 22-24 city, 32-36 highway. see full Saab 9-3 review
