Unveiled a few short months ago for the Brazilian market, the new Fiat Argo actually looks relatively nice. However, after seeing these renderings, we’re crossing our fingers Fiat doesn’t decide to make an Argo Station Wagon.
Rendered by Maltese Design, the lengthened Argo actually looks like it’s the real thing, so we have to give props to the designer for doing such a fine job. Unfortunately, the Argo’s design simply doesn’t work well as a wagon.
In place of the short and sporty rear end now sits an elongated rear that looks bloated and rather unsightly. One of the key reasons why the Argo looks so odd as a station wagon is because the rear window sits more vertically than it does on the hatchback. Consequently, the wagon loses the attractive touch of the regular Argo and looks just like any other wagon.
Although there’s no indication of a station wagon variant being offered, customers of the Argo hatchback still have a range of options to choose from in creating their dream hatch. These include the availability of a 77 hp 1.0-liter three-cylinder, a 109 hp, 1.3-liter four-cylinder and a 1.8-liter E.torq unit delivering 139 hp.
