If this is similar to the glassy-smooth "wood" trim as we have in older
Audis, you really don't _have_ wood to maintain. You have to deal with the
thick, plastic resin finish, which covers (obscures, IMHO) a beautiful
wood-grain surface below it :(.

Mainly avoid scratching, or cracking the finish--dust gently with a
(slightly damp, if possible) cloth, and, if needed, clean with a mild
cleaner--probably the manual gives suggestions. But there's no need (or
benefit) for traditional wood maintenance such as rubbing in tung or
linseed oil, etc.
