Yes.

You can do the sandwich Baggie test to see if it needs clay. Being a new car you should be ok. Unless the car has been sitting on the lot for months.

Most vehicles are transported by road or rail and will become contaminated with brake / rail dust (ferrous metal) as suggested try the 'bag test' 99% of the time it will benefit from a clay process
