Full size spare on 2019 DS HSE ?

Post by ksu499 » Tue Jun 11, 2019 2:31 pm

Hello. I have a 2019 HSE on a slow boat from Britain heading for Virginia. It's a 5 seat model and suddenly the question has come up of the spare tire. It has 18 inch wheels. Is it going to have a full size spare tire? Going off road with a donut is not one of my favorite things.

Thanks so much for your attention.

Rain sensing windscreen wipers
Front fog lights

Rear fog light

I can't believe LR would do that. I expect a donut with a Toyota Camry -- not a Land Rover product.

you get a can of foam as standard in the UK - reduced section spare steel wheel is ca US$200 extra for us
