no going back
After someone buys one of these cars they just can't go back to anything else. With out all the 'safety' features making them lazy drivers combined with a touch screen you have to look down and take both youe eyes off the road and a hand off the wheel for, they'll end up wrapped around a tree if they drive anything else. It concerns me that someone, especially someone learning to drive, that gets used to all they safety features that basically let you get away driving with less than your full attention could be hazardous to everyone's health if they drive a car without those features. And if you're going to put a touch screen somewhere, put it where you havea prayer of seeing the kid dart in front of the car or the tractor trailer swerve. Putting it down by the armrest is begging for trouble.

GPS tracking Malibu for the teens

I don't think teenagers will be very happy with that. Neither they will with the Chevy Malibu's track system, or when the audio system shuts off when the front seat belts aren't buckled. But then again, I don't believe a Malibu is a car for teens anyway. Going to Malibu, yes. A car, not so.
I also like the Jaguar XF, specially the "system that monitors drivers in case they get tired at the wheel". I wonder if the car will stop automatically for a coffee.

Gorgeous cars! I love the self tinting sunroof and the GPS tracking Malibu for the teens. My personal favorite is the 2016 Jaguar XF. The new InControl Touch Pro program is neat and useful!
