What Are Switchable Type Controllers In Hyundai Kia Cars?

Hyundai Motor is all set to launch the new-gen Verna on March 21, 2023. The sedan will undergo significant design and feature changes. As already revealed by the carmaker, the new-age Hyundai Verna will receive a host of segment-first features, including switchable-type infotainment and climate controllers. But what exactly is it?

As the name suggests, this is the single controller that controls both the infotainment and the climate control system. At the touch of a button, you can switch between the two. Until now, this feature has only been found in high-end Hyundai Group cars, such as the Kia EV6 and Niro. The 2023 Hyundai Verna will be the first mass-market Hyundai model to get switchable controllers.
