Didn't find this in the manual anywhere / could not self discover it...

I'm always locking the doors after getting out of the driver's seat.
Is there a way to lock all the car doors from the trunk / tail gate area after I've collected my stuff?

Examples:

Honda CRV tailgate button has two buttons. A large one to open, and a small one to lock all doors


Benz has this button inside the tailgate:

If you've already locked the car, then opening and closing the lift gate afterwards will leave it also locked. You could check this by trying to open it again after you put the key down somewhere away from you. There is no button on the liftgate that allows you to lock all doors, that I'm aware of.

This is the way my blue trim hybrid also works. I can open the liftgate, whether or not all the doors are locked, as long as I am carrying the fob in my pocket.

No you're saying the car already works the way I am currently already doing things, which I'm forced to do, because the button I want doesn't exist
The button doesn't exist because you don't need it. Why do you need a lock button for doors that are already locked? I do agree with you in a way though. It is rather counter intuitive to walk away from a door you just closed and not have to do anything to lock it, especially when you just had to push a button to lock all the other doors. There is a reason why the hatch can work that way. It is because the hatch opens with an electronic switch, not with a mechanical latch. I know there are people here that complain about not having all doors on their cars work that way but I am not one of them. The whole car locking system is a great example of confusing electromechanical overkill, not just Hyundai but all newer vehicles. Give me a key, a fob, a couple of key holes (including a key operated ignition switch) , mechanical lock buttons on the insides of the doors (hatch included) and take your pushbutton start and shove it.
