Manufacturer uses 8 cylinder for 3200cc engine. why they are not using single big cylinder Having 3200 cc engine capacity?

Sure you can. If you want your car to behave like a giant kangaroo.

Eight cylinders working at different angles of the fullcycle as designed by the crank shaft is more efficient and gives a smoother ride.

Interesting question mate @Tanveer Tharadia I think it's because of the geometry of the design. The bigger the piston, the lesser the power per weight. If we use a single cylinder, to derive the same amount of power, you would need somewhere around 6 or 7 liters instead of much lesser. ?  scratching my head.

multicylinder engine kicks power more time during singpe revolution of crank, gives turbine like smoothness and also allowed to lightweight flywheel hance kerb weightnof vehicle....bla ..bla...bla
