Which 4x4s are chain cam?

I'm looking to replace my Renault Sport Clio 172 next year with a Hyundai Ix35. Does the Hyundai Ix35 CRDi Style 2.0 litre have a chain cam engine as I've found that replacing cambelts every 4 years is getting expensive?

I'm also gravitating towards the Skoda Yeti 2.0 TDI 140 4WD SE 5dr. Does this vehicle also have a chain cam engine?

Do these vehicles come with a full size spare wheel?

All Hyundais and KIAs are now chain cam. Only the Yeti 1.2TSI, 1.4TSI and 1.8TSI are chain cam. The 1.8TSI with 4WD is by far the best Yeti. The Hyundai ix35 and KIA Sportage both have full size alloy spare wheels. The Yeti doesn't.
