Chevrolet has released a new video about the 2016 Malibu, this time talking about a new system called Teen Driver.
The tool will allow parents to check out what happened while their teenager driver took the Malibu for a ride. It will be capable of showing a plethora of characteristics such as the distance driven, maximum speed traveled, over-speed warning issued and stability control events. Moreover, Teen Driver will also display any antilock brake events as well as forward collision alerts and forward collision braking events.
In addition, it will mute the radio until the front seat belts will be fastened and will give audible and visual warnings whenever the teenager is driving faster than the pre-established speed. The teenager driver won't be able to manually disable the following safety & assistance systems: stability control, front & rear park assist, side blind zone alert, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision alert, daytime running lights / automatic light control, forward collision warning, traction control and front pedestrian braking.
In order to use Teen Driver, the parent will have to create a PIN in the Settings menu which will allow them to register their kid’s key fob. All the aforementioned settings will be automatically activated once the registered key fob is inserted.
Chevrolet has previously announced the 2016 Malibu will be unveiled on April 1 at the New York Auto Show.
