Anyone here order the optional spare tire on the tailgate? Had one on my previous RAV4 but noticed that the backup camera is completely blocked on the EcoSport with spare tire. Can anyone confirm this?

I believe that this is why the tire was left off. There is a regulation that all new cars now be equipped with a backup camera and safety system. The tire would block the camera. Which model did you purchase?

If you order the spare tire, the camera is moved to the mount. The rear bumper is also different because it now holds the license plate.
