Kia has announced that they will be releasing a pro_cee’d GT hot hatch in the second quarter of 2013.
All we know that it will feature a 200 hp 1.6-litre turbocharged GDI engine with six-speed manual gearbox which features in the Hyundai Veloster Turbo. So you should expect 0-62 mph in just over 8 seconds with a top speed of over 130 mph.
It will be interesting to see what Kia comes up with as we feel they need a show case model, but it prove a little too soft to compete with the likes of Renault’s Megane 265 Cup.
