Am I missing something? Put the a/c on today using the auto button then varying the temperature setting. I cannot see how to turn the a/c off without going into the climate control, settings, turning it off. Turning off the auto button does not do it.

Do you not have an A/C button on the climate control panel?

On my RC the Auto button simply controls the airflow and fan speed to maintain the desired cabin temperature. There is a separate button (A/C) to switch the compressor on and off. 

It is also possible to change the function of the A/C button via the customisation menu, check your handbook for details

No a/c button on or off. The only way to start the a/c is put it on auto.

Never ever turned A/c off .

A gain in mpg in normal driving in D-Mode would be negligible & cabin climate less comfortable .

I'd noticed it appears that the only way to turn off the a/c is on the screen, pressing the auto button will turn it on but no button to turn it off.

I've downloaded the full user manual as the car only came with a short version. Will have a search in there to see if there is another way.

I get a dry throat from a/c if its on too long, either in the car or in work. As a result I only use it if its really hot or to demist in humid conditions.

Could it be that the Auto button works as a toggle switch?

Just been out and tried that, unfortunately doesn't switch it off.

same on my GS - there is no physical AC button, you need to go through the A/C controls on the infotainment screen to toggle it on/off.

Because it's meant by design to be left on ..
