Just to say - pretty much any polish will be at least slightly abrasive, if only for paint cleaning purposes.

From personal experience I can recommend Bilt Hamber Cleanser Polish, and Britemax Blackmax.

Any good old cleaner wax will do the job well, some contain abrasives, some are solvent based, hard to remember without reading every description on the products .... Dodo juice lime prime lite is pretty good, meguiars cleanser wax is good but abrasive, bilt hamber do a polish, ol' trusty autoglym SRP.
Just be sure to protect it with a sealent of your choice after polishing.

I’m doing a new car very soon (F Pace) and I’m looking at using Dodos supernatural Micro Prime subject to a test with a few pads.
It’s a great polish that is very easy to use and break down and can remove marring and light swirling.

I have autoglym SRP that I used to use on my old car but have read it as quite abrasive on new paintwork

SRP is probably one of the mildest products on the market, and the one polish most of us start with. Most people will apply it by hand so unless you are using the wrong applicator I can't see it causing any damage to new paint.
SRP is the product I would recommend to anyone who wants to polish a new car, topped with EGP of HD Wax.
I would go EGP for ease of use but the new Ultra HD Wax is easier to apply than the old HD Wax.
They wont break the bank either.

No abrasives?
Have you looked at Glare?!

A few threads knocking about on here about it

Quality products and no abrasives (other than Glare Micro)
