The new turbocharged 1.6-litre GDI petrol engine will produce 204 PS (201 bhp) and 265 Nm (195lb/ft), powering the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and allowing the Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in 7.9 seconds.

The pro_cee’d GT will go sale in the UK from the middle of the year, while the five door cee’d GT will follow end of 2013. The pro_cee’d GT is expected to start from around £16,000.
