https://www.noticiasautomotivas.com.br/fiat-argo-e-o-nome-do-novo-hatch-medio-da-marca/ The launch PR and marketing for this vital new model has begun. The model replaces in the very profitable (even in and through the severe Brazilian+Argentinian recessions there over the last few years) FIAT Palio as well as the latam Punto. It launches there in May, apparently, and will feature both the cutting edge new Firefly GSE engines as well premium feel, feature set, fit finish, materials etc (relative to the Brazilian market, now recovering, as is the Argentine one.) Safer, yet lighter and roomier than the famous but aged models Palio and Punto it FINALLY replaces. This model will also see large exports to Mexico, and to Chile. The sedan sibling will be made in Cordoba, Argentina, which has recieved investment of 500 million us$ apparently: the 'new Grand Sienna' (x6s), also a model that wil see good demand in mexico albeit as a dodge? FCA has used the Brazilian recession well: focussing on premiumizing its offer there via the Jeep renegade and compass and the hit new pckup the FIAT Toro, all made at the all-new susw pernambuco wcm (gold i think?) plant. There will apparently also be other siblings to this Fiat ARGO ('latam' platform). A pickup to replace the Strada/Ram 700 (x6p), a JEEP badged b-suv below the Renegade and/or a FIAT badged b-cuv. Brazil, Argentina and Mexico have free trade agreements in place, so. This model in rhd form was intended as of the earlier 2013/14 plan also for India, as was the x6s and the Fiat cuv. It appears that that's been entirely ditched, FIAT may soon be withdrawn from the Indian market, in favour of the Jeep Compass (also for rhd exports), rhd Renegades and/or the x6h-based Jeep b-suv for emerging markets (sub-renegade.) Probably because India would've been its only rhd or non-latam market (as 'Fiat') while, instead, in Jeep spec and name and design the rhd x6h is also quite exportable.
