SAN JUAN –The 2016 Summer Auto Fest, self-described as the “largest indoor summer auto show in Puerto Rico” and aptly named “La Movida del Verano” (“The Summer’s Groove”), returned May 30 to the Plaza Las Américas shopping mall in Hato Rey and will run through June 5.

The unique weeklong event, now in its 15th edition, features a collection of the summer’s most appealing and popular models on the market, including the latest arrivals and a large selection of sport-utility vehicles (SUVs) and sports cars, as well as off-road, recreational and family vehicles.

The exhibited vehicles were chosen for their outdoorsy quality, safety features, efficiency and great value, said Myrna Escabí, who also produces the Puerto Rico International Auto Show held during the fall at the same venue.
