Kia just took the wraps off the 2013 Pro cee'd, but new details are starting to emerge about the upcoming Turbo variant.

Autocar says the model will be launched next summer and feature a turbocharged 1.6-liter petrol engine with approximately 200 hp (149 kW / 203 PS). That doesn't sound terribly impressive but the car is also slated to have unique styling, a sportier suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels.

As Cee'd product manager Vladislav Alexiev explained, "We're ready for the next step but are careful and listen to the markets and what is expected from the brand. Our designers are always pushing, but we must keep establishing the brand with cars like the Procee'd to give it the credentials to do different things. We are very interested to hear the feedback."
