A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.

The Fiat Argo is an upcoming B-segment hatchback from the Italian automaker, which is slated for its global unveiling soon. Fiat has, in fact, dropped a teaser image last week, hinting towards a sharp design theme. The spy shots of the Argo, which have been doing the rounds on the internet, also confirm that the hatch will certainly wear an angular design theme that is in line with the way seen on the Tipo. The design, therefore, will be a cool change as the Argo is slated to replace the old Punto hatch-back in sure markets.

Reports suggest that the Argo will be available in three engine options at launch – 1.0l 3-cylinder and 1.3l 4-cylinder FireFly petrol mills belonging to Fiat’s new GSE (Global Small Engines) family and a 1.8-litre petrol engine from the E variant. TorQ Evo range. The Argo is expected to come in three trims – Attractive, Essence and Sporting. The Argo, though probable to be a world car, may not make its way into India. The speculation stems from the rumours that FCA’s Indian arm is diverting all its attention towards Jeep to try and make most of the affiliation that the Indian market has towards the SUV form factor.
