The 2016 Malibu is redesigned and redefining car tech. Owners can now track driving habits. It might seem like Chevy is taking a step toward George Orwell's book 1984 but really Chevy is simply offering ways to instill good driving habits in teenagers, and allow car owners to have the ability to keep track of how their friends drive their car.
A few new Malibu tech features to ask about:
1. When front seat occupants aren't wearing seat belts, will the stereo audio be muted?
2. When the Malibu is traveling over preset speeds, will audible and visual warnings be emitted?
3. The Malibu also keeps a record on how it was driven; ask whether Forward Collision Alert or Lane Departure Warning features are triggered and whether max speeds are reached.
Aside from trip recording software and safety features in the Malibu, Chevrolet continues to add car features that sync to your life. New Malibu drivers will find Apple Car Play and Android Auto apps on the Chevrolet MyLink system - a system that connects to your car to your phone and keeps you connected to the outside world while you drive.
Whether you're a parent, a working professional or both, MyLink tech can help you manage your life and your digital entertainment. Want to learn more? Schedule a test drive with Mountain View Chevrolet today.
