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

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
