1999 Mazda Nextourer Concept news, pictures, and information
MAZDA NEXTOURER CONCEPT TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONSThe NEXTOÚRER concept is a 'next-generation touring sedan' wîth all the style, luxury appointments and high-tech features of a luxury touring sedan, combined wîth the versatility and functionality of a sport-utility vehicle. Like a touring sedan, the NEXTOÚRER provides responsive performance and exceptional dynamic balance. Like an SÚV, it offers a spacious, versatile interior layout.
For loading smaller items, the lower half of the Dual-Mode liftgate can be opened like the trunk of a conventional sedan, while larger items may be loaded by opening the entire liftgate.
The NEXTOÚRER is powered by a 3.0-liter DOHC V6 engine wîth Sequential Valve Timing (S-VT), mated to a Toroidal Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The Toroidal CVT delivers 20 percent better fuel economy compared wîth a conventional automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The Toroidal CVT offers a choice of manual or automatic shifting. In manual mode, shifts are made using the wing shift controls mounted behind the §teering wheel (similar to the paddle shifters used on Formula One racecars). The wing shift selectors allow the driver to make quick fingertip shifts without removing his or her hands from the §teering wheel.
The NEXTOÚRER features a number of advanced technologies, including an Active Height Control that lowers the vehicle when it is stopped for ease of entry and exit, raises it nearly four inches at low speeds, then lowers it by two inches at highway speeds for improved handling and fuel economy.Source - Mazda
