1. A method implemented by one or more processors, comprising:
receiving, at an automated assistant application, an electronic message that is directed to a user that is on an excursion to a destination via a vehicle that includes a computing device,
wherein the automated assistant application executes on the computing device or communicates with the computing device, and
wherein the message is received during or before a first portion of a route of the excursion;
determining, before the user has completed the first portion of the route, a first predicted level of driving engagement for the user during the first portion of the route;
determining, before the user has begun a second portion of the route, a second predicted level of driving engagement for the user during the second portion of the route that is subsequent to the first portion of the route;
determining that the second predicted level of driving engagement indicates less driving engagement than the first predicted level of driving engagement; and
based on determining that the second predicted level of driving engagement indicates less driving engagement than the first predicted level of driving engagement:
determining to withhold output, of any content that is based on the message, while the vehicle is navigating the first portion of the route, and
causing the computing device of the vehicle to output, to the user while the vehicle is navigating the second portion of the route, content that is based on the message.
