Teens, Tech and the new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu

Teen Driver & Chevy Malibu

 

The newly redesigned 2016 Chevy Malibu offers something for pretty much everyone in the family. This newest version of the Chevy Malibu has the team at Mountainview Chevrolet really excited not only for a new look, a new hybrid engine option and several tech features that parents will love. What we're going to focus on in this post are the tech features parents can use to keep track of their driving habits and encourage safe driving habits for their kids, even when they are not in the car with them. This can be great, especially with new drivers in the family.

The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu debuts a system, called Teen Driver, that provides parents with a tool to help encourage safe driving habits for their kids, even when they are not in the car with them.

It allows parents to set speed alerts, limit audio volume, and even receive vehicle reports "so parents could use it as a teaching tool with their kids-they can discuss and reinforce safe driving habits.

For example:
1. Stereo audio is muted when front seat occupants aren't wearing safety belts.
2. Audible and visual warnings are given when the Malibu is traveling over preset speeds.
3. Music volume limitations can be put in place.
4. Parents can check to see how the car was driven; whether Forward Collision Alert or Lane Departure Warning features were triggered and what speeds the Malibu reached on its last drive.

Aside from the available teen driving safety tech, the 2016 Malibu also offers seamless Apple Car Play and Android Auto app integration with the Chevrolet MyLink system. This tech feature makes it easier to manage your busy life as a parent and working professional.

Want to take a look? Call us at Mountainview Chevrolet to schedule a test drive.

How To Test Drive A Car

Silverado Test Drive
Test driving seems simple, but that perception is why it's so easy to overlook things when taking a car for a test drive; we all can get caught up in the experience.

One of the most important things to remember before you take a test drive is to not compare the car you're test driving to your old car. Instead, compare the car you're test driving to your wants and needs. You want to purchase a new car that meets your requirements; not limit yourself to the next best car. Before you take a test drive at Mountain View Chevrolet, consider the below checks.

1. Do your research online; know what type of vehicle you want before visiting the dealership. We suggest this because it will save you time and ensure you're analyzing vehicles based on your everyday needs. Consider garage size, towing capacity needs, roof racks for bikes and other everyday lifestyle needs.

2. Observe the car from the outside; don't just jump in and turn the key. You'll want to take in the design features and equipment quality, and make sure it meets your specifications. Is the front end too low? Will it scrape on the ground pulling into work or your driveway?

3. Open all doors: front, back and trunk. Make note of how far they open and how easy they open.

4. Once inside the car, pay attention to interior seating. Make note of comfort levels, control locations and technology features. Are they convenient for your life?

5. Move the drivers' side seat back and forwards. Note the distance from the steering wheel as well as how much leg space you have. This is important to ensure driving comfort and airbag safety.

6. Before you start the engine, turn the key slightly, only to start the battery and not the engine. Check the dash for any engine warning lights. You should see none.

7. Once the engine is started and you're driving, don't limit yourself to just smooth roads. Test drive the vehicle on rougher roads. This will give you an idea of road noise in the cabin and suspension performance.

8. Note any visibility issues with mirrors, how the steering and handling feels, and how well the vehicle brakes and accelerates.

9. Lastly, take time to park the vehicle, so you're certain you won't dread parking it later if you decide to purchase the vehicle.

Why does Mountain View Chevrolet give you all this information? Because we want you to like the vehicle you purchase from us.

Chevrolet Sweeps Awards at the American International Auto Show

Chevrolet delivered an outstanding showcase at the 2014 North American International Auto Show and won the crowd’s attention with the new Corvette Stingray and Silverado which were awarded car and truck of the year. This marks the first time Chevrolet has won both awards in the same year. The Corvette was last named car of the year in 1998 while the Silverado was last named truck of the year in 2007. The big win for Chevrolet also meant a big win for domestic automakers, keeping them at the number one spot in the automotive industry. Domestic Automakers have won North American Car of the year 12 times while Japanese, European and Korean automakers have won nine times combined. Similarly, domestic automakers have also won truck of the year seven times more than Japanese and European automakers combined.

More than 5,000 journalists from over 60 countries attended the North American International Auto Show this year and only 49 multi-media journalists from USA and Canada chose the winners. The Corvette Stingray swept the car of the year award beating the new Cadillac CTS and the new Mazda3 compact.

Chevrolet Corvette
It is no surprise the new Corvette won the crowd’s attention considering its consistency in delivering outstanding performance driven features and futuristic technological characteristics. Improved features on the Corvette include the new aluminum-intensive chassis structure, which is 57 percent stiffer and 99 pounds lighter than the previous generation, and a re-designed spacious cabin. Corvette took a big leap forward and committed to creating not only a performance driven sports car but one that is also driven by beauty, comfort and safety.

Chevy Stingray

Chevrolet Silverado
The win for the Silverado was due to its re-designed structure and, improved interior and exterior appearance. The Silverado benefited from weight reduction from a redesigned exterior trim and a lighter but more powerful fuel efficient new 6.2-liter V8 engine. In addition to its spacious four-door spacious cab, the Silverado offers a two-door standard cab and an extended cab with a smaller rear seat and doors. This powerful truck has a towing capacity of 9,800 pounds and is capable of maneuvering through curves and steep surfaces. To top it off, the interior is superior in its class in terms of styling, quality, comfort and safety features.

Chevy Silverado

The Car and Truck of the year By Chevrolet serve as a benchmark for other vehicles in similar segments in terms of creativity, innovation, style, comfort and most importantly, safety. The Corvette and the Silverado are a true depiction of Chevy’s commitment and dedication to transforming the over 100 year’s old brand into the next generation of futuristic and innovative cars.

Chevy – More than Meets the Production Line

2012 Chevy Malibu

For years, millions have come to associate Chevy with the slogan “More than Meets the Eye,” as Chevrolet models have always received top-billing when casting the Transformers movie series.  While that speaks volumes in and of itself for Chevy as a brand of cars and trucks, muscle and sophistication alike, there’s even more to Chevy than meets the silver screen.  Chevrolet has been very busy helping to advance eco-friendly energy technology behind the scenes for years, and it shows not only in their Chevy car and truck lineup and record-setting fuel economy as a manufacturer, but in small towns all over the U.S. that are now home to renewable energy projects.

Outside the showroom, Chevy’s funding projects from South Dakota to North Carolina, from renewable biomass to wind turbines – and even waste heat recovery.  The goal, for Chevrolet, is to prevent 8 million metric tons of CO2 from entering the earth’s atmosphere over the next 5 years.  16 various eco-friendly projects like these are receiving 40 million dollars in funding from Chevy; that’s not just an investment in sales, it’s an investment in the future sustainability of the entire world – which, as altruistic as it may be, is one of the most sound business investments any corporation can make in a win-win (or wind-wind) situation!
