Yes i have the same rattle!!
But i have many rattles :(
I think its the hard plastic cover in the boot that sits ontop the
tire well. It cant be the parcel shelf because thats just material and not solid in any way (i think)

Stick a tea towel in the boot, drive, move tea towel, drive.... find where it's rattling and then make a plan.Or take it to a dealer and complain... Only way I think.

An example would be lovely lol

Sorry. Pad the area you supsect of rattling with the tea towel. Use it to isolate plastic from metal, plastic from plastic etc etc.Something we do a LOT in our old camper...

Gotta find the rattle first. Maybe try taking everything out the boot for a day to see if the rattle goes away? If not then maybe a loose cable under the rear seats. Saw it when messing about in the boot.

Some things to check:*Rubber bumpers on the hatch might need to be extended a bit more.*Wire in the rear hatch (there is a plastic cover that you can remove) Sometimes the wire hits the metal tab. Might want to felt tape it.*Jack tools, tow hook might need to be padded.*Styrofoam in the trunk area might need the bottoms felt taped to avoid squeeks.*Heat shield tabs for muffler might not be inserted all the way.*Latch/lock when rear seats are up. Might need some felt tape.*License plate bolts might not be tightened all the way.
...These were issues in the US.
