“As we continue to launch new products, including the all-new automatic Fiat 500 Abarth, the US Open of Surfing remains a great platform to showcase the depth of our portfolio and interact with the young audience attending this event”, said the head of the Fiat brand of North America, Jason Stoicevich.

The Fiat 500L Vans Concept is coming with four rings of LED daytime running lights, a new front grille, a 3-tone exterior paint job, a roof rack holding two surfboards, the checkerboard pattern on the roof, VANS stickers in the cabin, canvas seats, waffle sole tread pattern for the pedals and storage bins and more.
