Unlike previous generations of Toyota SUV's that came with a standard spare, this time around it should be optional. Being a vehicle made for a lot of folks in the city, tire patch kits are suitable. You even see less vehicles come with spare tires as standard. A better question would be how many of you would opt for a spare?

I'd rather a spare than a patch kit any time. Yeah it's a little extra weight to lug around but if it's only a dummy, it's essentially only an extra like 15 pounds ?!

If you were to get a side wall intrusion of some sort, the patch kit isn't going to do anything helpful for you.
Not much weight at all, I agree, but for me its more of a space issue. Spares and the tools to go with them take up a good amount of space. Living an active lifestyle I can find so many more uses for that space, likewise with a lot of people I know living different lifestyles.

Being an entry-level product there's a smaller chance we'll get it powered, instead what will be better is to have a hatch that opens and stays opens with struts.

At this rate Toyota needs features like this to better appeal to younger crowds and in addition get more marketing power.
Plus they are sitting on a lot of money right now, this won't be much of a commitment to them in terms of dollars
