Not many new cars come with this item now. (for info have a VW Passat Estate)
This is a pet hate of mine.

The problem is the politicly driven emmission laws.
Improve power to weight ration, and you emit less.

It should be mandatory to have the spare available as an option, and have somewhere to stow it.
