Engine Position On New RJ's

Posted (16 years 7 months 8 hours ago) and read 1130 times:

I was wondering why both Embraer (ERJ-170 and -190) and FairchildDornier (528/728/928) have decided to use a wing-mounted engine design for their new families of RJ's.

I thought the rear mounted engine design allowed for a more efficient wing design and a quieter cabin.

Could it be possible that they wanted the planes to look more like a larger 737, and less like a typical RJ?
