    Have a read of the Engine Balance topic on Wikipedia. It's a good one.

    3 Cyl.pot has more NVH levels.
    In 3 cylender engine, torsional vibrations of crankshaft are more.
    So some manufacturer put Crankshaft Balancer to minimise crank vibes.

    If I am not wrong,Pionneraaroon mentioned that Nissan Micra has crankshaft balancer.

    This technology is used in 2 wheeler also.
    In Bajaj Pulsar & Suzuki GS 150 R cranshaft balancer Idler Gear is used.:p

    4 cylinder engine has smooth & balanced power delivery.So in my view 4 cylender mill is the best.
