I use Alto, when I drive any four cylinder car then I find a big difference of performance specially with AC on. Now I want to upgrade my car with Polo which is three cylinder car which offer three cylinder engine. Is this hampers lack of performance comparing to four lcylinder cars ?

Dear Sujoy, The number of cylinders does not hamper the performance of a vehicle. rather, it has more to do with the displacement. Your Alto has an 800cc engine, whereas the Polo has a 1200 cc engine, which is 50 % more. So yes, while the AC will still hamper the performance somewhat, the effect wo't be as pronounced as you are experiencing in the Alto.
