Answer by Imran 10 October 2009

The 3 cylinder engine is the advance technology from Maruti Suzuki. The zen estilo is very smooth & better pick up in this range. Very comfortable & it gives very good millage. U just take a test ride and u know that. This is latest K-series engine. It is totally different from another engine.

3 cylinder engines are weak especialy in LOWER RPM(800-1500)range.
They are not very smooth due to primary imbalance. No enthusiasist driver will ever buy a 3 cyl engine.
How ever they are more efficient as compared to 4 cyl.
There is no problem with top speed or max power but acceleration and drivability will be less.

Expert`s comment:

The advantage of 3 cylinder engine is the simple construction and overall light weight engine and hence the efficiency will also be better than the 4 cylinder engine.However four cylinder engine has better torque power than the three cylinder engine and hence performance will be better.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 10 October 2009

Maruti 800 cars and Maruti Vans are running long time in 3 cylinders. Even though they worked very good with (fuel efficiency and performance wise). Now Estilo has KB Series engine and BHP & Torqes are more higher than the old 4 cylinder Estilo. However, don't compare with Swift and Dezire. Estilo can be campared with B segment cars like Santro, Spark , Alto, WagonR & Indica.

Maruti recently introduced A-star will be a reliable vehcile. The same engine is used for Estilo(3-Cylinders).
Since they are fixed with KB Series latest Bharat-IV norms,
it will be a good vehicle in no matter 3 Cylinder or 4 Cylinders. If you are going for a car race of-course you should choose high BHP/Torqe engines.

According to ur question u would like to buy the new car, but u r confusing between 4 & 3 Cylinder. The simple thing is depend on performance I have the 4 cylinder zen & also now 3 cylinder A-star. Acording to my experience the A-star has more power, pick-up, and more space than zen.which K-series engine available in Zen estilo. But acording to new model & style I suggest A-star will be best.
