Mine has neither. The place where the button is in the diagram is where the backup camera would go, if I had one. Perhaps that manual in your link is for a different country.

My 2015 SE has a regular key, not the smart key. Where the trunk switch is on a smart key vehicle there's a non-operating plastic plug filling the hole where the switch is supposed to be so if your car uses a regular ignition key then no, you can only open the trunk with the fob or the lever by the driver's seat.

You can put the rear seats down and crawl into the trunk and pull the safety to open the trunk from the inside.

Or your cars probably have auto-trunks where you stand near the trunk for a few seconds and it opens on its own...that's what they have done for 2016.
Its not possible you don't have a button to open it from the outside.

On my 2015 the only way is fob or lever. A friend of mine added a button to his where the OEM button would go and it works when the car is unlocked. I don't see the point since I need the fob to unlock may as well just use the fob to get in.

Inside lever, fob or touch pad are my options. No key hole on the trunk.

That may only be for the Limited with tech package vehicles. I also know this is a 2017 option as well.


On my 2016 Limited I have the lever in front, my key fob, and the proximity button next to the backup camera. I think I would be to impatient to stand there for 3-5 seconds waiting for the lid to pop before I tried to press the button.

All joking aside I found an unused pin on a connector in the SJB that when energized pops the trunk.

Could use this to add another unlock method if you wanted.


However 2 ways in is already plenty no?

With my 2015 Limited with keyless entry, I can use the trunk lever by the driver seat, hold down the trunk button on the remote control, or have the keyfob in my pocket while I press the button under the rear deck lid. If you don't have keyless entry there's probably a keyhole somewhere, though just going by memory I don't think my 2015 (Canadian) owner's manual showed the keyed version with the key where the OP's pic has it; I think it was on the left side up under the deck lid.

Valid point. My first rodeo with this feature. I have "slowed my roll" when approaching the trunk. By the time I get there, the third flash has occurred and I'm a second away from the grand opening.

But you're right. I get impatient and press the button under the trunk lip. "If" my hands are ever full, I can appreciate the benefit it offers.
