Anti-corrosion protection for the body consists of modern metallic protective coatings on the sheet metal, a high-quality painting process, corrosion-protected and minimised metal overlap, and shielding plastic components, abrasion protection and supplemental rust inhibitor in exposed areas. This combination guarantees that the body will remain free from corrosion problems over time. In the chassis, exposed components of the wheel suspension are made of corrosion-resistant cast aluminium.
Inspection and maintenance
The car's anti-corrosion protection normally requires no maintenance, but a good way to further reduce the risk of corrosion is to keep the car clean. Strong alkaline or acidic cleaning solutions must always be avoided on glossy trim components. Any stone chips should be rectified as soon as they are discovered.
