Galvanised body

Galvanising is a surface coating of metallic zinc on steel. The zinc forms a physical and electro-chemical barrier to rust. Even if scratched down to the base metal, the zinc layer will continue to protect the steel from rust. Sheet steel can be galvanised on one or both sides. All our cars feature galvanised body panels, a process that helps enable their industry-leading 12-year corrosion perforation limited warranty.
