TypeR THIS is a car that -- on paper -- should not work half as well as it does; most of its rivals have more power, a few have a theoretically better rear suspension but the Honda Civic Type R has a few tricks up its sleeve that mark it out as being a little bit special. I've likened the Type R to a four-wheel motorbike and the analogy is a good one because of the intoxicating engine. It begs to be driven and revved hard and that high peak of power takes you into an addictive adrenalin zone. All the cars in this market are pretty quick and some have better handling but the engine gives the Honda some real soul, real heart.
