Does a Ford EcoSport have a spare tire?

I want to buy an economical SUV to tour the country for my photography business. However, I only want to buy one if it comes equipped with a spare tire for emergencies. Is there a spare tire on the Ford EcoSport?

The Ford EcoSport doesn’t have a spare tire in most cases. However, certain models may have a spare tire that attaches to the exterior of the rear door, much like you’d find on a Jeep Wrangler.
While your EcoSport may not have a spare tire, Ford equips these models with a tire repair kit located beneath the rear cargo area instead. This kit includes a tire sealant and an air compressor, which should get you far enough to reach a tire repair shop.
