Renault will reveal a preview of its luxury-focused Initiale Paris models at next month's Paris Motor Show, according to a new report out of Europe.

French newspaper La Tribune reports that the model to kick off the new trim-grade will also be the brand's newest offering: the 2013 Clio light car.

A leather-clad and feature-rich Clio Initiale Paris would give Renault a rival for the upcoming Peugeot 208 XY variant, and Citroen's DS3, a re-styled and up-spec cousin to the regular C3 hatch.

Speaking with the French paper, Renault COO Carlos Tavares is quoted as confirming that the brand is preparing to launch the Initiale Paris line-up, but did not offer any hints on timing.

"We've already got a team of designers and engineers working on launching the Initiale Paris brand," Tavares said. "We're shooting for Volvo, not Mercedes-Benz and BMW."

The ‘Initiale’ moniker has been applied to several top-end Renault models in the past, including a 1995 concept luxury sedan.

It is unclear whether the brand would be treated as a separate brand - such as Nissan's Infiniti line - or as an extension of the Renault brand, similar to Citroen’s DS line.

Tavares reportedly added that the rebirth of the Alpine sports marque, previewed by the recent A110-50 concept, is on track for a 2015 or 2016 launch.

As for the regular Clio, Australian buyers can look forward to their first taste of the new hatch in mid-2013.
