Fiat Chrysler has rolled out the replacement for the aging Fiat Punto hatchback in Brazil – the all-new Fiat Argo.
The Argo will eventually replace the Punto globally, however only the Brazilian-spec model has been shown thus far. The tiny crossover rides on FCA’s ‘Small Wide’ platform also used in vehicles like the Fiat Tipo and 500.
In Brazil, power for the tiny hatch will come via a 1.0-liter or 1.3-liter engine from Fiat’s ‘FireFly’ engine lineup, while a larger 1.8-liter ‘E.torQ’ mill will also be offered. A manual 0r automated manual will serve as the transmissions options, along with a traditional automatic. The engines will support the use of gasoline or ethanol.
The Argo is shown here in ‘HGT’ sport trim, which adds the red contrasting accents you can see on the front and rear bumpers. Other features include LED lighting, 17-inch wheels and a ‘floating’ infotainment screen for the cabin.
Pricing for the Fiat Argo has yet to be announced.
