Fiat Punto successor (Fiat X6H) to be called Fiat Argo – Brazil


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will not be introduced in India.

FCA Brazil has dropped the official name of the Fiat Punto’s successor as well as introduced a microsite for interested folks to register. It will be called the Fiat Argo, and a launch is expected to take place next month.

Fiat Punto successor (X6H) to be called Fiat Argo

Commonly known as the Fiat X6H, the Fiat Argo will be based on an all-new platform, and have a wheelbase of just over 2.50 meters. The design is claimed to draw inspiration from the Fiat Tipo hatchback but does have some distinctive elements which, so far, has been hidden under thick camouflage.

Inside, the Argo will feature a three-spoke steering wheel nearly similar to that of the Fiat Tipo, a large MID between the analogue speedometer and tachometer, a free-standing infotainment system with a colour display, and circular central HVAC vents.

Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and 5-speed Dualogic automated manual transmission.
