...can you add some pics of the 2013 Fusion 1.6EB and would you be lucky enough to have the 6spd manual with this engine.

Hey everyone -

Thanks for replying to metric's thread. Both vehicles look so beautiful parked in his clean and large garage. Click this link to find out more information about the C-MAX: http://www.ford.com/cars/cmax/.

In response to GhiaFan's question about Active Noise Cancellation, microphones are inside the vehicle's headliner. They detect and measure the amplitude of sound waves. A module takes into account engine speed to calculate a frequency that needs to be canceled. The module then generates a sound wave with the same amplitude and reverses it. This reversed wave is directed through the audio system speakers and combines with the original engine sound wave to cancel each other out.

Thank you for posting these pics!!! They give a lot better perspective on the size and proportions of the C-Max than the publicity photos do.

I have loved the C-Max since I drove them back in 2005. Just pissed you can't get the TDCi 1.6 here.

HF35 Planetary E-CVT which is a normal planetary gear set automatic with one set of gears and blends the power from the two electric motors and the gas engine just like most of the other hybrids with the exception of honda's integrated motor assist (IMA) system that just squeezes an electric motor between the engine and gearbox.

Hi tlhfirelion,

The C-Max will feature an Electronic Continuously Variable (e-CVT) transmission. Check out more C-Max specs here: http://www.ford.com/cars/cmax/specifications/engine/

I hope this helps,
-Crystal
