Kia has revealed UK pricing details for the 2013 pro_cee'd which is already available for order.

Offered in S and SE trims, the second generation of the pro_cee'd is priced from 17,495 GBP and comes as standard with 16-inch alloys, automatic lights with follow-me-home, electric windows, cruise control, electrically-operated, heated and folding door mirrors, trip computer and rear parking sensors.

SE trim (19,495 GBP) adds 17-inch wheels, stainless steel door sill plates and pedals, automatic dual-zone climate control, 7-inch touchscreen sat-nav system, automatic rain-sensing wipers and driver/passenger power lumbar seat support.

Surprisingly, SE variants seem to be quicker when compared to S models with the same engine. For example, the 1.6-liter GDi gasoline with its 133 hp (99 kW) and 164 lb-ft (222 Nm) will do the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 9.8 seconds in the S trim while the SE variant needs 0.3s less.

The same thing applies for the 1.6-liter CRDi producing 126 hp (94 kW) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm). The diesel pro_cee'd S hits 62 mph in 11.5 seconds while the SE is a full second quicker. Both engines are connected to a 6-speed manual transmission, while the 1.6 GDi SE can be optionally fitted with a 6-speed DCT.

Full details are available in the press release section.
