I've been driving an EP3 for a long time, and I will say that the shorter hood creates a long dashboard that gives a bigger, airy feel to the cabin. That said, I agree that a long, low hood typically looks better than a short, high one. I had both a '92 and '98 EX, and the low cowls were also great for visibility. I wonder how low the cowl will feel on the 11th gen, or if that's an extinct trait.I really like the 11th gen design overall. It reminds more with the low hood and higher passanger cabin design of the 4th/5th/6th gen civics. I don't really like 7th-9th gen design with the ridiculous steep and high hood.
