Working on putting a donut spare tire kit in my 2020 TLX PMC EDITION such a sweet ride 馃槏
I had to replace all 4 aging, but good tread, tires on my 2016, and I bought a cheap hub and had the folks put one tire on the hub as a spare. The full tire raises the trunk floorboard about an inch above level, but I can live with that. Just ran some Velcro on back of trunk flooring and its mate on the tire.

Drag, tho, to have to buy both jack and tire iron, but now it's done. Never felt comfortable with that usb inflator.

I've been looking at the local junk yards for a spare tire kit. Buying them new is $$$.
Understand the corporate mentality for not including them - easy way to drop a few pounds and get marginal increase in MPG.
But man, a cheap dc powered air pump and flat seal won't work on a severely damaged flat. And I can change a tire faster than I can call for roadside assistance.

Where did you get yours, and what did it cost, if I may ask?
