The new Teen Driver feature helps responsible parties keep track of new drivers by monitoring speed, distance, and safety alerts. The system takes down the overall volume of the radio and will not play the radio at all until all passengers are buckled in.
In addition to Teen Driver, the Chevrolet Malibu is now available with a variety of driver's aids. The Driver Confidence package includes front pedestrian braking, forward-collision alert, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist and lane change warning, and a following distance indicator. The Driver Confidence 2 package adds adaptive cruise control, automated parallel and pull-in parking assist.
