Yaris Cross Space Saver Spare Wheel

Hello fellow Yaris Cross owners - since owning my 2022 Yaris Cross Excel, I have been researching why I have a tyre repair kit and not a spare wheel as standard? My extensive research to now has revealed that the UK version of the Yaris Cross has a repair kit included simply to keep the vehicle weight within a defined taxation class, a space saver wheel is supplied as standard in non-European models. The good news is that there is a space saver spare wheel complete kit available in the UK. It comprises of space saver wheel and tyre, jack and necessary tools, support former to fit onto the wheel in the boot and the wheel/tyre clamp for the boot. I have ordered, received and installed the kit, absolutely perfect. It is available from toyotadirectparts.co.uk at a total cost of £230.99, including VAT and shipping. Toyota Direct Parts are absolutely fabulous to deal with - they are a main Toyota dealer located in Swindon (Fish Brothers) and they come highly recommended for efficiency and service.

I really hope the above information saves some of you many hours of research - I now feel so much more secure in the knowledge that I have a spare wheel on board in the event of an unfortunate puncture. I DETEST tyre repair kits, a very poor option and, in my opinion, an unsatisfactory option.

The parts list has been shared before, but it is good to know that this is available as a kit. I ordered the rubber mat set from the same website/dealer.

It is a shame the wheel kit won’t fit in AWD models.
