3 Cylinder 12 valve engine has 4 valves per cylinder.4 Cylinder 12 valve engine has 3 valves per cylinder and 4 Cylinder 18 Valve engine has 4 valves per cylinder.
4 Valve cylinder has higher performance with respect to power generated per cylinder and makes a better selection.Mileage depends upon cc of the cylinder and also on other parameters such as valve design,engine material,etc.

What the above quotes say is absolutely correct but the exception proves the rule.

Just look at Diesel segment too... Mahindra Varito, Nissan Micra, Renault family- Pulse, fluence, Duster & Scala.
All are having Renault -8 valve Engines, i.e 2 valves per cylinder. These vehicles are much smoother, fuel efficient & proven engine life of 4.5 Lacs / Kms.
