What is the trunk volume with the factory spare tire option?

I was trying to see pictures of how BMW is installing a spare tire in the trunk of the new G20. I purchased a 2018 X3 with the spare tire. It required raising the cargo area floor and the loss of cargo volume.

Does anyone know what the G20 spare tire volume looks like?

The odds are high adding the spare will raise the trunk floor. I would add it, but probably only carry it when traveling.

if you order no cost option non runflats the configurator tosses a spare in for $150.

I have the spare in my X3M40i.

G20 may equip space-saver spare similar to G30.

I donít suppose anyone knows if the UK spec m340i will be available on non-runflats?

First thing I changed on my e90 335d was remove the run-flats and carry tire weld with me.

Saw one yesterday and it looks close to that. You do loose significant trunk space.

Thanks for confirming! Although not exactly the answer we like to hear from BMW (elevated cargo liner floor), hopefully BMW will improve it with LCI or something similar to compressor/sealant option from M models.

By the way NH_F36, is cargo liner mat or tray available for order now?

No accessories yet. As soon as I get the list I will post it.

It's actually not that bad as you can take out the spare and compartments next to it and the cover just covers the area where the spare tire was previously so your trunk becomes the same as one who didn't get the option. It'll be the best $150 you ever spend if you're going to go-flats as buying those parts later costs us G30er's close to $900!!

Does the car come with a carpet cover to hide the spare tire? Or does the trunk remain uncovered with the spare tire exposed?

I just placed an order for the 2020 G20 with the space saver spare and non run flat tires. Hoping it comes with some type of cover to hide that spare tire...

I saw a picture posted here, but cannot find it. You lose a lot of trunk space as the spare just sits on top of the trunk floor since the battery is there. There is also some plastic to hold it in place and creates a small cubby or two.


Edit
These arent the pictures I saw originally, but you can see how much space is lost

Yes there is a cover and that cover is used when the spare is removed.

I had a loaner yes the spare is covered but you lose trunk space. Though you can remove it and get the trunk space back if you need the space to haul something. Just don't get a flat. Here is a review showing what it looks like.


See 8:54

This is the m430i without the spare:
