Fiat Argenta


Produced: 1981-1986
Fiat 132/Argenta
The second major facelift of Fiat 132 came in 1981, along with a new name, the Fiat Argenta. Other changes included new trim, wheels, dashboard, mirrors and rectangular headlights.

The Argenta came with a choice of 4 different engines (market dependent):

1.6 litre petrol producing 96 hp (72 kW) 1585 cc
2.0 litre petrol with 113 hp (84 kW) 1995 cc
2.0 litre petrol with Bosch L-jetronic fuel injection producing 122 hp (91 kW) 1995 cc
2.5 litre diesel with 75 hp (56 kW) 2435 cc
Digiplex electronic ignition was fitted to some 2.0i models

In 1984, the Argenta was face-lifted. The grille was renewed with the then corporate 5-bar grille, and an anti-roll-bar was mounted on the rear axle. The front axle was widened by 40 mm (1.6 in), and new wheels with flat wheel trims & chrome embelishers used. Some minor changes were made inside the car, most notably to the style and colour of seat trim.

The Argenta had also two new engines: Fiat's first turbodiesel, 2.5 litre producing 90 hp (67 kW), and for the Argenta VX a supercharged engine with 135 hp (101 kW), derived from the Lancia Volumex models.

The car remained in production until 1986 when it was replaced by the Croma.
