Chevy just made a lot of parents happy and, though they may not agree, teenagers should be happy too. There’s a new technology that has the potential to take a lot of stress out of teaching your teenager how to drive.
The new technology is called Chevy Teen Driver and it can be found on the all-new, redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Malibu. This suite of technologies is designed to give parents a way to monitor their teen’s performance.
Though the use of an app, parents can see if their teen has exceeded a preset speed limit, gone outside a set radius or find out if the anti-lock brakes were engaged. Teen Driver also allows parents to make it so that the stereo is muted until seat belts are engaged.
Chevy Teen Driver in no way interferes with the performance of the car but is intended to create and improve the dialogue between worried parents and teens. That’s according to MaryAnn Beebe, a Chevrolet safety engineer who also happens to a mom.
If that’s not in an assurance of safety, we don’t know what is!
Come check the Chevy Teen Driver feature out at Bush Auto Place in Wilmington, OH near Dayton and Xenia.
