Report: Alfa Romeo still on track with new SUV, BMW 3-Series competitor, and all-new Mazda-based Spider

In a live web seminar with TheTelegraph in the United Kingdom, Alfa Romeo’s head honcho for the UK division, Damien Dally has confirmed that an Alfa Romeo SUV is on the way. This is due in part to Fiat’s acquisition of Jeep, which has opened up a “whole portfolio of technologies” wherein many of Fiat’s other subsidiaries could now base any future SUV plans using technology that exists in current day Jeeps.

“There will certainly be an [Alfa Romeo] SUV in the next two or three years,” Dally said to TheTelegraph.

In other words, Fiat can now utilize Jeep platforms because they own part of Chrysler, who owns the Jeep brand.

Fiat’s and Chryslers relationship is pretty well established as the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee is based on the same modular platform as the Dodge Dart and the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. That said, there is a chance that the new Alfa Romeo SUV could be based on this platform and will utilize a range of engines and either front- or all-wheel drive.

Dally didn’t comment on the styling, though TheTelegraph says the new SUV may be based on the 2003 Alfa Romeo Kamal Concept.

On the flipside, Alfa Romeo is also still reportedly due to release a new Spider roadster in 2015 as part of a collaborative effort with Mazda. Word is that the new Spider will be closely related to the next-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata.

Alfa is also supposedly in the works with an Audi A4/BMW 3-Series competitor as Dally said that Fiat’s Sergio Marchionne is “absolutely exacting” in ensuring that this competitor can do its job as intended. A launch date sometime in 2014 is expected.

Should I Buy The Amazon Echo Plus (2nd-gen)?
The new Echo Plus offers a radical redesign compared to the original, ditching the plastic body for a fabric mesh housing that helps the speaker blend into the home environment.

Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Pulse Best-Value Activity Tracker Review

You will not find an activity tracker that offers better value than Xiaomi's Mi Band Pulse. We put the upgraded Mi Band to the test in our Xiaomi Mi Band 1S review.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Pulse?
With a tougher band addressing our issues with the original, and a new heart-rate sensor bringing it into line with rival activity trackers, you quite simply won't find a better-value fitness band than the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S Pulse. It still falls down on social interaction, apps and its use of a proprietary charging cable, but given the price we can accept these shortcomings.

Does Amazon's New FireTV Stick 4K Do It All

HDR, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos... Yup!
It seems like every year a new format comes along to make all our "old" gear obsolete. For audio video afficionados, those latest formats include Dolby Atmos immersive sound, and three different flavors of High Dynamic Range for enhanced picture quality. The three HDR flavors currently on the market include HDR 10 (the most common), HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision and HDR10+ promise better picture quality than standard HDR 10 by using something called "dynamic meta data." Basically they're able to shift around the required storage bits on a scene-by-scene basis to get the best dynamic range out of movies and TV shows that are encoded in the format.
