Alfa Romeo's American arrival coming in fall; talk to your Sonic, Spark


(Alfa Romeo)

Brand returns
The latest blueprint for Alfa Romeo's American resurrection calls for sales of the 4C sports coupe, a 2014 model (shown), to begin here in the fall. Sergio Marchionne, chief executive of Alfa's parent, the Fiat Group, said recently that customers could pre-order the car this spring. But he didn't say who would take the orders or what the car would cost. The 4C will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic and Spark vehicles equipped with MyLink are now available with Siri, a program that responds to verbal commands. Through the company's MyLink infotainment system, drivers with a compatible iPhone running iOS 6 can direct Siri to perform tasks while they keep their eyes on the road.
