Sorry, Bud. Confirmed that MY 13 2.0i will not allow me to disable a/c on defrost mode. I tried it this evening, and there was definitely something bogging down the engine even after I tried to turn the a/c off. Either something else is running in the background (in addition to a/c) while on defrost, or the a/c didn't disengage. I'm thinking it's likely the latter, given the cold air blowing out of the vents.

Since MY 13 2.0i is just a re-badged MY 12 2.0i with minor edits, I suspect the same holds true for MY 12 2.0i.
