Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1994, the Argos was a small roadster geaturing a simple design and refined layout.
It foreshadowed the design of the second generation Clio. Lightweight at just 750kg with a clean symmetrical shape, the Argos had a perfect balance – reflected in the equilibrium between its exterior lines and interior curves.
The Argos had no superstructure, no roof and no windscreen. Its subtle wind deflector folded down and its retractable mirrors tucked into the front wings. The doors slid back to nestle into the satin-finished rear wings as the opened.
Inside, the Argos had an unusual three seater layout. The traditional gear level disappeared, instead a mini-lever mounted next to the steering wheel sent gear change commands via an electronic control unit to two electric actuators.
