For teenagers, getting their first car is a monumental moment on their path to independence and adulthood. For parents, however, it’s mostly a stressful and scary proposition. Chevrolet, thanks to the new 2016 Malibu, is looking to put parents’ minds at ease and teach teens safe driving habits all in one fell swoop with the Chevrolet Teen Driver System.

The system teaches teen drivers safe driving habits in unique and effective ways. The vehicle will mute the audio from the radio or any paired device if front seat passengers are not buckled. It will also display audible and visual warning signs if the car is being driven over preset speed limits.

And this information doesn’t just stay with the driver, either. Parents can also check the log via a built-in display that shows how fast the car was driven, how far the car was driven, and the number of times the car’s active safety features became engaged. “We developed this system so parents could use it as a teaching tool with their kids—they can discuss and reinforce safe driving habits.”

The system allows the parents to stay in control of their children’s education, but assists them wonderfully in that education as well. To learn more about the system or the other great features of the Chevy Malibu, come see us at Lang Chevrolet today.
