A Ceramic Coating provides much better protection then any wax or sealant while keeping your car cleaner longer and enhancing gloss. Ceramic coatings work so well for several reasons. Sealants and waxes sit on top of the paint and behave as a sacrificial layer that breaks down very quickly, and offers no additional strength to the paint. Ceramic coatings are different, as they are microscopic silica molecules. These molecular bodies work their way into the pores of the clear coat and permanently cross link with the paint. This infuses the ceramic into the paint, greatly increasing hydrophobics(water contact angle), the slickness(surface tension), and greatly improves resistance to chemical etching.
These characteristics are exactly what you want with any protection to your paint. The best part about these coatings is they last 1-7 years or more depending on the coating you choose and how well you maintain the vehicle. So to recap a ceramic coating is extremely beneficial to your paint's protection, gloss, and longevity.
It is important to be realistic of what your expectations are and how you care for your vehicle to make the decision as to weather or not you should coat your new car. Coatings are not some impenetrable barrier that will prevent scratches on your paint, and they will not keep your car perfectly clean all the time. They still require you to properly care for and maintain your vehicle, which many people may not have time for. Some folks like to run their car through the auto car wash and go through their day. If this is you, it may not be best to invest into a coating.
If you are the type who will properly wash and keep up with the maintenance of your vehicle's appearance, plans to baby their new car and want to keep it looking good long term; coatings make this much easier for you.
