An inline engine has all the cylinders arranged in a single row. Many 4-cylinder engines use this arrangement.

A V-type engine arranges the cylinders as the two sides of a "V". 6 and 8 cylinder engines often use this cylinder arrangement.

Rotary engines were common on early airplanes, but also used in some automobiles. A rotary engine doesn't have cylinders, and is a very unique design.

A Flat engine design has all the cylinders lying on the horizontal plane, with half of the cylinders facing away from the other half, and the crankshaft between them. Due to pistons moving back-and-forth towards each other, some refer to this piston arrangement as a boxer engine.
