what's different between 4 cylinder 2 liter and a 6 cylinder 2 liter? if they both produce same HP & Torque then what's the different?

the reason i'm asking it's because in Euro they have 320i with 4 cylinder but 6 cylinder in here? However, i think 4 cylinder definitely save more gas and has less weight. If this's true why just we use 6 cylinder in 320i? marketing purpose?

From what i've been told, the 2L 6 is a lot smoother driving motor than the 4 banger!

First because it's lighter.Second the block is shorter so more weight behind the front wheels which helps in handling...and i don't think race cars need to be smooth.

OK first, about what kinda of 3 series are you talking about??
If E90, then because WTCC regulations says you can use engine upto 2.0l and thats the only 2l engine available
If E46, same thing
If E36, some cars used S14 engine from E30 M3, and some 6cyl 2.0l
