Hyundai has given its Elantra small car a subtle makeover, unveiled in Korea this week ahead of a late 2013 Australian introduction.

Sold in Korea as the Avante, the Elantra sedan picks up a revised face with a new grille, re-shaped foglights and new LED-enriched headlights.

There's also new LED lighting in the rear lamps, along with a softly updated rear bumper and new two-tone wheel designs.

The bumpers have been stretched a little at both ends, extending the Elantra's overall length by 20mm to 4550mm. Hyundai says the change, although small, gives the Elantra "a more stable and balanced look".

In the cabin, the Elantra scores new higher-mounted air vents and redesign controls for air-conditioning, audio and navigation. There's also new ventilated seat and heated steering wheel options.

There's also Hyundai's Smart Parking Assist System, along with the now familiar Flex Steer feature and new vents with a 3.5-inch OLED display in the rear row.

Mechanically, the Australian-delivered Elantra range's engine options will carry over largely unchanged.

Local sales for the updated Elantra will begin later this year.

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.

With 3110 sales between them, the Elantra and i30 sit behind the outgoing Mazda3 (3464) and the new Toyota Corolla (3945) as one of the most popular pairs in the Australian market.

Watch for the updated Elantra to hit Australia either later this year or early in 2014.
