Singapore - What happens when 8600rpm of screaming VTEC mayhem, an uncompromising ride, razor-sharp steering responses and manually shifting gears in heavy traffic are, gulp, no longer your cuppa? All of us eventually come to that point in our lives, when new ‘duties’ (in my case, a wife, son and helper) demand that a compromise of some sort be reached.
Having owned both a Honda Accord CL1 Euro-R and Civic FD2 Type-R over the course of the past 14 years, it is clear I have a soft spot for cars that offer a combination of four-door practicality as well as good driving fun. My ideal car should offer space, comfort and speed, but we know that seeking this perfect balance today is not easy unless cost is (almost) no object and you can buy a few cars to suit your different needs.
