In the past, the Argo was spied upon many times during extensive testing. Based on a stretched iteration of the Fiat 326 platform, this is the first time that the Argo has been revealed in its production form. However, Fiat has made sure not to reveal any important bits of their most awaited car. The teaser revealed LED lighting for the car; headlamps, daytime running and fog lamps. The wheels seem to be somewhat inspired by Abarth and it’s a similar story with the grille as well.
The teased car was an automatic, but the Argo will be available in manual transmission as well. The Argo is expected to come in three versions - attractive, essence and sporting. These versions will be available with three powertrain options – 1.0-litre turbo-petrol, 1.3-litre naturally aspirated petrol and the 1.8-litre diesel with a five-speed manual gearbox.
It’s still not known if Fiat India will get the Argo to replace the age-old Punto in India.
