    The main difference between a 3 and a 4 cylinder engine is the number of cylinders. But that’s not all. Because of the number of cylinders, a 3-cylinder has a very different firing order to maintain balance. In the case of a 4 cylinder engine, power is generated every 90-degree rotation of the crankshaft. In a 3 cylinder, however, power is generated every 120 degrees. Due to such variations, a 3 cylinder engine shows drastically different characteristics in comparison to a 4 cylinder engine. A 3 cylinder engine is much more fuel-efficient compared to a 4 cylinder engine of the same size. This is because of two primary factors, reduced frictional losses, and lighter weight. Since there is one cylinder less, the frictional losses caused by metal surfaces coming in contact within the engine block is lesser.
