Fiat has revealed its new hatchback, the Argo in Brazil. The car was unveiled just a month before it goes on-sale in June this-year. It will be launched in developed markets after Brazil and will replace the Punto from Fiat’s lineup.

Reports suggest that the Argo will be launched in India by next-year and the car has been teased in the company’s official website recently. The car will be based on a stretched out Fiat 326 modular architecture.

The Argo, like other Fiat cars, looks fantastic from all angles and styling could surely be a talking point when the car goes on-sale here sometime next-year. The front is dominated by a honeycomb meshed-grille with smoked out headlamps of swept back type. The car is fitted with alloy wheels which look sharp and has some plastic cladding which give it a tough personality. At the back, there is a spoiler and a distinctive exhaust pipe along with attractive looking tail lamps.

The engine specifications are not yet unveiled but it can also use the existing set of engines (1.0-litre, 1.3-litre and 1.8-litre petrol). When launched, the Argo will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and the next generation VW Polo, due for launch this-year.

The Argo looks like it can give its rivals a good run for its money, at least if Fiat prices the car aggressively.
