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.

Update – Ferd Fanpage has posted an image of an undisguised Fiat Argo revealing its rear fascia. Details of the car’s launch, specifications and variants have been documented below in this article.

Update – The top-end Fiat Argo ‘HGT’ variant has been spotted without camouflage in Brazil, by Filipe Morales. The Argo is days away from its market launch, with the first examples spotted on a transporter heading to dealers. This unit, featuring the special body colour, is the ‘Opening Edition’ which would be limited to 1,000 units.

Dispatch to dealerships appears to have begun.

Several units of the Fiat Argo were spied nearly undisguised at the company’s factory in Betim, Brazil, ahead of its launch in the following weeks. It will replace the Punto and Palio in Brazil, and later spawn a mid-size sedan codenamed Fiat X6S, that will replace the Siena and the Linea.

These shots give a first look at the Argo’s final design which draws inspiration from the Fiat Tipo hatchback but does have some distinctive elements such as the window line, taillamp design, sportier bumper set and smaller dimensions.

One of the images also reveals the range-topping HGT version, which has 16 inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, chrome-finished exposed tailpipes, and an aggressive body kit.

The Fiat Argo will come with a 1.0-litre FireFly three-cylinder engine, 1.3-litre FireFly four-cylinder motor, and a 1.8-litre E.Torq Evo engine. The availability of said engines depends on the variant chosen: Attractive, Essence and HGT. A 5-speed manual gearbox is standard in all variants, while the 1.3L and 1.8L motors can be had with a 5-speed Dualogic automated manual transmission and 6-speed automatic, respectively.

The interior has been exposed in new photographs featuring 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 that runs Android Auto, and circular central HVAC vents.
