Coming soon: Civic Type-R vs Lancer Evolution (X)

A shootout between a RM199k Honda Civic Type-R and the RM323k Mitsu Lancer Evolution? Possibly a mismatched duo or perhaps a comparo bordering on insanity, you may wonder.

Well, both of them are top-drawer, high performance halo models of their respective range, yes? One wears the the much-revered Type-R 'talisman' while the other has the iconic WRC-bred Evo heritage.
Coincidentally (seriously!) both of them have ended up on the test platter of this writer over the last weekend. And the findings are rather baffling and outcome not as straightforward as A, B, C.
Watch this space for more details soon...

It all depends on your budget. The Evo X would be the ultimate racing machine but if the racing enthusiast cant cough up RM323K, I believe he will be equally happy with a RM199 Civic Type R. I will.

It would have been really interesting if you could have thrown in the Renault R26 into this mix too.
