Hyundai has released a handful of small images teasing an update to its small Elantra sedan (sold in Korea as the Avante), expected in the coming weeks.
Released on the company's Korean website, the images reveal a subtle update to the front end, focusing on new ribbon-like LED lights integrated into the existing headlight design.
Changes at the front end are rounded out by a revised chrome garnish in the upper grille, along with new foglights and bezels at each end of the front bumper.
The 2014 Elantra's updated back-end sees similarly subtle tweaks, including new LED-rich lights. It is unclear from the teaser images if any changes will come to the rear bumper, however.
It remains to be seen what upgrades have been made to the Elantra's interior, or to its mechanical package.
It is known however that Hyundai will offer its Smart Parking Assist System with the Korean-market update, and the company's three-model Flex Steer system will likely also feature.
The current Elantra made its Australian debut in June 2011, arriving with one petrol engine, along with six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
The small sedan has been a relatively strong seller for Hyundai, with 820 units sold in July. That number was eclipsed however by its i30 hatch sibling, with 2290 sales in July.
Watch for the updated Elantra to hit Australia either later this year or early in 2014.
