Learn Safe Driving Habits with Chevrolet Malibu Teen Driver System

As a parent, there’s nothing more terrifying than watching your teenager drive off in a car all by themselves for the first time. Well, maybe there is one thing more terrifying—being in the car with them. But, all jokes aside, driving is a somber responsibility, one that it can be hard to get teenagers to take seriously.

Now, Chevrolet is hoping to change all that with the newest version of the Chevrolet Malibu. The 2016 model sedan features the Teen Driver system, which helps teach teenagers safe driving habits and put parents’ minds at ease. The system can mute audio if passengers aren’t wearing seatbelts and give warnings if the driver starts passing preset speed limits. Parents will be able to view a record of how their teens drove as well—including how fast they were driving.

It might sound like a teenager’s worst nightmare, but in this case, it’s a nightmare that could save millions of lives. “We developed this system so parents could use it as a teaching tool with their kids—they can discuss and reinforce safe driving habits,” said GM safety engineer MaryAnn Beebe. Beebe has a personal connection to the technology as well. “As a mother of two, I know anything that has the potential of keeping one’s family safer is of great value to parents.” Come see us at Hanner Chevrolet to learn how to get equipped with the Malibu Teen Driver system today.
