I didn't spring for the cargo cover for mine. I keep a Harbor Freight moving blanket folded up and stashed in the back. It is useful to use to protect the rear bumper when loading cargo and big enough,and dark gray, almost black colored that it does a good job of concealing anything in the hatch area. With as dark as the hatch window is tinted and a dark covering over objects in the rear, someone is going to almost have to press their nose against the glass to even notice anything. It will deter the casual observer who is just walking by.
