It is unclear if the Argo name will also be used in Europe. The current Punto was on the market for twelve years, and sales sharply declined. The Argo was presented a year later than planned, and is needed to strengthen Fiat's offering in the subcompact (B) segment, traditionally an important one for Fiat.[1]
