Chevrolet is continuing to tease the upcoming 2016 Malibu, which will show its totally-redesigned face in a little over a week at the 2015 New York Auto Show, and recently showcased its industry-first technology to monitor how teen drivers behave behind the wheel.
The Chevrolet Teen Driver system, one of the twenty-five new technologies for the brand this year, allows parents to set critical options for a registered key fob in the car. The system can mute the radio until all seatbelts are fastened, and parents can even set a max speed for their teen. Upon exceeding the max speed, an audible message appears on the driver information system and a chime will ring until the speed is brought back under the set limit.
Teen Driver can also automatically turn on all optioned safety features on the 2016 Malibu, and upon the teen’s return home, parents can view a report card on how they performed.
All of these are shown in the accompanying video, and we get a few looks at the camouflaged car and a few interior pieces. We’ll have more information on the Teen Driver system upon the car’s reveal, but in the meantime, have a look at the video down below.
