yes but they are very limited now most utilize something close to AWD which is an intelligent system that activates the needed wheels when it senses slippage, others uses buttons or switches no more auxiliary gear.

depends on cost cutting tires and rims fitted under the trunk are exposed to environmental weather and elements which can degrade it since it's in the open it is cheaper that way than say one fitted inside the car with a special holding or those fitted at rear of the car for aesthetics.

some like the rear fitted ones found in Honda CR-V others like it hidden in the car in a special column made for it, while someone like me won't mind the exposed under trunk type makes extra space available for luggage
