The three-door Kia pro_cee'd coupe has been spied undergoing testing ahead of this year's programmed reveal.

In recent weeks we've seen the facelifted five-door cee'd hatchback testing in winter conditions and our spies also caught on camera the hotter GT version and now time has come to take a look at the more stylish pro_cee'd testing in a warmer climate. It wears camouflage on both front and rear fascias which could indicate they are hiding some big changes but taking into account sister model Hyundai i30 received only minor tweaks, chances are the facelifted cee’d range will also come with modest cosmetic revisions.

Perhaps some bigger changes will occur underneath the hood as those turbocharged 1.0- and 1.2-liter engines could finally replace the naturally aspirated 1.4- and 1.6-liter units. Output figures are expected to be similar while fuel consumption should go down considerably thanks to turbocharging. The standard six-speed manual gearbox could be joined by an optional newly developed seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission which made its debut on the i30 facelift.

Kia will probably bring the revised cee’d range (hatchback, coupe, wagon and GT hatch & coupe) in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
