It's a fundamental decision not to fit EU models with a spare, as there is no bolt hole in the well to secure the wheel either. US and Australian models have the wheel and mount as standard. Alternatives:
# A Civic s/s rim is the same size, but the tyre for an HR-V is larger*, i.e. Continental CST-17 T135/90 R16 102M as fitted in other territories (about £70). This is what is being made up by Cox and others.
# There is an exact match from certain Mitsubishi cars such as the Grandis, but the centre bore is 67.1mm v 64.1mm for the HRV, so would require spigot rings as well (+£10 set of 4, send other 3 to members on here?)
Official kits might be available in the spring, but the lack of a secure fixing point may leave dealers unwilling to supply loose wheels, and might be annoying over speed bumps.
* HR-V T135/90 R16 dia 649mm
* Civic T135/80 R16 dia 622mm

Local alternative under development with HME Technical Service / not all parts needed for test are available yet
Long term & structural solution being developped with Japan
I'm afraid I don't have good news.
At present, there is no spare wheel available for HR-V and unfortunately, the issue is with the car itself rather than parts supply.
On European spec models, the requisite bolt hole to secure the wheel is not present which is why no spare wheel kit has been created.
Honda Motor Europe are urgently investigating a countermeasure for this, but it's not clear at this stage how long this will take, or indeed if a retrospective solution is even possible.
We are liaising directly with them on a regular basis but that's all the information I have at this stage.
Of course, we will pass on any more concrete information as soon as we have it.
