2002 Saab 9-5 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2003 4dr Sedan turbocharged 185hp 2.3L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
For a car with this much power, the mileage is great. Even with a roof rack and some heavy feet, it gets 22+ mpg in mixed driving. Very rare for a car with this kind of performance. see full Saab 9-5 review
2003 4dr Sedan turbocharged 185hp 2.3L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Excellent for such a large and powerful car. I consistently get about 28 mpg in mixed driving, normally with a good share of very congested urban driving in the mix. see full Saab 9-5 review
2002 4dr Sedan turbocharged 250hp 2.3L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Hard acceleration and high speed passes still return 22-23 mpg. Easy driving, 29-30 mpg. The 250 hp 4 cylinder is very responsive with minimal turbo lag. see full Saab 9-5 review
