This has more to do with the originally intended driveline layout than with the number of cylinders, although transverse/compact size/FWD-AWD generally go well together while longitudinal/balance/RWD-AWD generally suit each other as well.
A car designed to be RWD will generally have the longitudinal layout. You won't see transverse engines until BMW brings out their FWD lineup IMO.
