According to USA Today, Teen Driver will eventually become available on all Chevrolet vehicles in the future. Ford has instated a similar system, MyKey, which is now offered on a wide range of Ford passenger vehicles.
To activate the system, parents will designate a specific key fob for their teen driver. When that key is in use, the car will issue audible and visual warnings if its speed exceeds a predetermined limit. Additionally, on-board safety systems will remain on while the teen driver is at the wheel, which include forward collision alert, parking assists, and forward collision and pedestrian braking.
Teen Driver also offers a report card (photo above) detailing the car’s top speed, distance driven, and which active safety features were engaged during a trip, such as if stability control kicked in.
Chevrolet says the system will come standard on the 2016 Malibu in the Premier trim level, as well as an option on LT models with the Convenience Package.
