MEXICO CITY Aug 13 (Reuters) - Mexico's central bank was divided over its decision late last month to hold rates steady, with one member arguing for a quarter point hike before the U.S. Federal Reserve raises rates.

Central Bank board members voted 3 to 1 at their July 30 meeting to hold their benchmark rate at a record low of 3.0 percent, minutes showed on Thursday.
