Nothing wrong with 3-cylinder cars..... Ford's using the 1,0 litre turbocharged 3-cyl on the Fiesta and Focus (debuting in that order). I drove a VW Polo 1,2 TDI recently and it was fine and dandy as an urban/suburban car. Felt fine humming 3000rpm in 5th @ 160km/h. Returned the equivalent of 57 US mpg and I wasn't even trying or stopping the engine (the Auto Start-Stop is only avail on the BlueMotion model).

I guess it's all perspective and expectations.
