If you take care of your car, it'll take care of you. Just wash and polish your car lots. I've driven RWD convertible BMWs in Alberta winters for the past 5 years and never have seen 1 spot of rust on them (the last one being a M4 Cab). The Esso auto touchless washes are also good for hitting the undercarriage good. It sometimes can be a pain to spray hard-to-get-to areas in there manually with a pressure washer at an angle.
Weird as I noticed that too here. See a lot less rusted Euro vehicles than any other make. Also, in very low temperatures like -30C, -40C, and below, the Euro vehicles still start without having to have a block heater plugged in. I used to lol when I'd drive away from work sites/staff housing as others would be stuck because their vehicles wouldn't start from being left in the cold.
