3-Cylinder, 4-Cylinder and 5-Cylinder engines explained. Why cylinder counts matter

Have you ever wondered why 3 and 5 cylinder engines exist? This video covers that and more!

5-cylinder engines have been used for some time in Volvo models like the C30, S40, V50, S60, V60, V70, S80, XC60, XC70 and XC90, but also by GM in vehicles like the baby HUMMER and Volkswagen and Audi in various models. This decade the new odd number is three. With the new 1.0L Ford Ecoboost in the 2015 Forst Fiesta SFE and the 2015 Ford Focus SFE 3-cylinders are coming back to the mainstream. You’ll of course also find 3-pots in the Smart ForTwo, Mitsubishi Mirage and the MINI Cooper. If you’ve wondered what’s going on under the hood this video is for you. I’ll talk about exhaust gas scavenging, turbochargers, efficiency and combustion overlap.
