    Hi All,

    Does any one have idea whether Variable Displacement A/C Compressors are used fro emotion variants?
    More info about Variable Displacement A/C Compressors can be found in


    Advantages if Variable Displacement A/C Compressors used :
    -> no AC clutch failure, since they do not have one.
    -> highly efficient (so improved mileage)
    -> Does not put huge load on battery (which is required to engage clutch)
    -> Variable air temperature can be achieved without mixing hot air.

    I will be happy to know whether Variable Displacement A/C Compressors has been used for top end variants with climate control?

    Definitely not because my Punto E+ has magnetic AC clutch - which means it is conventional compressor, not variable displacement type.

    @Ravi
    One more question. Can u please share the manufacturing date of your car.
    Because From this link http://www.teamfiat.com/threads/ac-compressor.6836/ I infer that Fiats with automatic climate control manufactured after 2012 has variable displacement compressors.

    Mine is Jan-2010. If what that post says is correct then I am stuck with outdated technology :-(
