2016 Chevrolet Malibu LT with Teen Driver – Review and Road Test
Ok, class, today we are going to cover the new Chevy Malibu. Please pay attention as this material will be in the exam next week.
We first saw the new 2016 Malibu at the New York auto show last spring and first had a chance to get behind the wheel at the beginning of the current year. The Malibu is a technological tour de force that includes Apple CarPlay, in-vehicle Wi-Fi, a hybrid drivetrain that can power the car in all-electric mode at highway speeds, and a variety of driver assistance technologies.
Let’s have a closer look at the Teen Driver functionality for a moment, shall we (stage notes: writes on chalkboard).
Driver assistance technology available on the new Malibu includes:
- Front Pedestrian Alert with automatic last-second braking
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
- Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert
- Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator
Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Front and Rear Park Assist
- Intellibeam automatic high beams
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Front Automatic Braking
- Automatic Parking Assist
This list makes the Malibu one of the safest cars for anyone to drive and it provides an extra cushion of support for new drivers, such as teenagers.
