My understanding of manufacturers covering corrosion has been limited to wheels and if the rust is from the inside out. In this case it is not therefore not warranty.

My 2016 plate Antara with only 37k and one owner has this. It seems road grime gets behind the plastic and then causes the grit to wear through the paint.

Mine is now fixed but here is the before.
