Kia's Europe-bound Pro_Cee'd GT will be packing a 1.6 litre turbocharged petrol engine putting out 152kW and 265Nm, the carmaker has confirmed.

Sharing its heart with Hyundai's Veloster SR Turbo, the GT's power boost is a 51 percent increase over the regular model, with torque up 61 percent.

Matched with a six-speed manual transmission, Kia expects the Pro_Cee'd GT to hit 100km/h in a worthy 7.9 seconds.

That target will keep the quick new Kia from worrying the Golf GTI and its own direct rivals, but if the price is right it will certainly find a lot of friends.

The GT will be offered in both three- and five-door bodystyles, and the six-speed manual will be the only transmission on offer.

Suspension will be MacPherson struts up front and a multi-link setup at the rear, with handling enhanced through stiffer springs, sports shocks and a thicker anti-roll bar.

Power steering will be electrically-assisted, and brakes will feature 300x28mm ventilated discs up front and 262x10mm solid discs at the rear. Wheels will be 18x7.5 inch all-round.



An Australian debut for the hotted-up Cee'd remains unclear, although Kia Australia has hinted that if circumstances permit (read: a solid business case can be made and production capacity allows), we could yet see it on local roads.

One hot Kia we can likely look forward to however is a turbocharged version of the next-generation Cerato Koup; essentially identical to the Cee'd beneath the skin. And that will be interesting.
