Re: Converting Karoq SE-L with space saver spare wheel to full-size spare wheel

Mark,

I'm in the 'Can't do without a spare wheel' brigade in this argument (and blame transverse engines for killing off starting handles even though they survived on Minis for a time!!!)

But as it will only be used in an emergency, I'm inclined to opt for the skinny narrow one rather than the fat one. Can you remember if the boot floors at the same height with either spare wheels(leaving a useful gap between the narrow spare wheel and the boot floor)? I can see from your picture 01 that there are gaps around the sides of the skinny spare wheel, but wonder if there's room to put items on top of it as well. (Thanks to lockdown I haven't been able to investigate showroom cars for a while :)

I understand that the 4x4 Karoqs have a higher well in the boot to allow for the Halex bits, but as Skoda quote the same boot size for 4x4 and FWD am not sure why they haven't lost some space like the Ateca does!

To answer my own question, from elsewhere it looks like the boot floor always sits directly on the spare wheel, so the floor is lower on the narrow spare and gives more boot space above it, but no extra room below it!
