If I change all 4 tyres to Michelin Cross Climates could I still use my space saver wheel?

I have a Volvo XC60 and am thinking of changing all four tyres to Michelin Cross Climates, however, I have a space saver spare wheel. Would I still be able to use the space saver in the event of a puncture, or would I have to purchase a fifth Cross Climate and rim, assuming it would fit in the boot space currently occupied by the space saver?

Cross Climates are directional and the space saver won't be. But you can still use the space saver in emergencies only in the same way as you would with the standard summer tyres. Very important not to drive too far on a space saver in an car with automatic AWD because the disparity will confuse the AWD system.
