Toyota has released a teaser image of an upcoming X Prologue model that will be revealed next week.

The single image shows a darkened silhouette of a narrow and stylised LED headlight, which wraps around a closed-off front fascia. The machine also features a relatively short bonnet.

The machine is set to be revealed on Wednesday 17 March, but not further details have been released by Toyota. The headline of the press release accompanying the image reads 'X Prologue – “a small” preview of what’s next', with the deliberate use of quote marks around ‘a small’ potentially hinting at a relatively compact model. That suggests it could be the forthcoming compact Aygo successor the firm recently confirmed it was building.

Reinforcing that, the image features a black Toyota badge, while the firm has traditionally used blue badges for its electrified models. The city car Toyota is working on will be combustion engine-powered.

Dear Peter,

Prologue is a very logical choice for a name of a concept car:

Prologue (noun):

1. An introduction or preface.

2. Any person (or object) who performs this.

3. Anything that serves as a preamble or introduction

Regards.
