Kia reveals details of Cee'd GT

Kia has revealed details of the new performance GT versions of its Cee'd and Pro_Cee'd hatchbacks. Set to go on sale in mid 2013 there are no details on prices yet but we do know that the GT models will be powered by the same 1.6-litre turbocharged engine that's used in the Veloster Turbo with power boosted to 204PS and 265Nm of torque.

There will also be LED daytime running lights while inside the GT gets Recaro sports seats and alloy pedals.
