Renault's small Fluence sedan has been given a makeover for 2013, replacing the anonymous face of the current model with the brand's new family look.

While the headlight shape is unchanged, Renault's wide new grille is now in play. The design was first seen on the DeZir concept, later transitioning to the light Zoe, the updated Twingo, the new Clio and the powerful Alpine A110-50.

The Fluence's new face and front bumper makes up the bulk of the styling tweaks however, with the current rear moving into 2013 with no changes.

Internationally, the Fluence picks up a new digital instrument cluster and new interior trim, and a passive entry system is also available, along with Bluetooth/USB connectivity and Renault's R-Link infotainment package.

Engine options include an 85kW 1.6 litre petrol engine, mated to the familiar X-Tronic CVT automatic transmission. Renault promises fuel consumption figures of 6.4 l/100km in this configuration.

There is also an 82kW four-cylinder diesel matched with an EDC 'Efficient Dual Clutch' roboticised manual automatic transmission, or a 96kW diesel with fuel consumption listed at 4.6 l/100km.

The updated Fluence will launch first in Turkey in early 2013, followed by more than 55 other markets.

However, it remains to be seen when, or even if, these updates will make their way to Australia.

Speaking with TMR today, Renault Australia's Emily Ambrosy confirmed that these changes apply to models built in Turkey.

Australia's Fluence is sourced from Korea, where it is built alongside the identical Renault Samsung SM3. Future plans for that model are still to be revealed.
