I'd probably suggest a claybar, maybe a light polish if needed, and a few coats of sealant/wax.

I'd maybe wait a few weeks after you take possession of the car before doing any polishing on it though in case they had repainted some panels that you might not have known about.

A new car shouldn't need anything more than a clay and wax or sealant but if there are some dealer installed swirls, a glaze like CG Wet Mirror will help hide them until you decide to polish it.
