Spare Tire for 2019 Hybrid Niro

Post by Johnxyz » Mon Apr 08, 2019 12:38 pm

I am preparing to buy a new 2019 Niro EX. Could an owner of a 2019 Niro tell me if there is enough room under the interior cargo area mat/floor to put a smaller size spare?

We do not have a local Niro dealer I will have to travel to pick up my new vehicle when we get it .When we test drove one I had to go to another city. My point being there are none locally to look at. I forgot to check the one we drove for the space under the rear cargo area

Thank you

Niro EX? I guess you must be based in N. America. I imagine the EX is fitted the same as the European models. If so, then there is a plastic tray under the mat which contains the tyre repair kit. If you remove that tray, there is plenty of room for a space saver spare, jack and wheel brace, which you can get from Kia,(or for a better price elsewhere). I believe that some owners have managed to source a full size spare which will also fit in the space - I'm not sure whether that only applies to the 16" wheel, or if there is room for the 18". Unfortunately, the plug-in has a reduced space due to the larger battery, and there isn't room even for the space saver.
