In the pantheon of cars that tend to earn thumbs up - and even a few invitations to partake in illegal street racing - the Civic Type R is definitely a VIP member.
A little over 48 hours is all Honda Canada gave me to see for myself just how much better the new hopped up Civic is than its predecessor. That it's better is already a given.
That's the case with all sports cars that "evolve" over the years. You remember the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, for example? The Japanese sedan was aptly named, and the Type R follows in that same vein.
