2009 Saab 9-3 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Wagon turbocharged 210hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
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
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

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

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
