Cambelt or chain cam?

Am interesting changing my car for a small turbo engine, like to Up but that is a cam belt and also looking at the Kia/Hyundai 1.0l turbo engine in the i20 or new Rio, is this engine chain or belt cam? As I like to keep my cars for a good few years I like to factor the cost of a possible change into my figures.

Many thanks and please keep up the good work on the website, first thing I look at every morning!
