There are a number of reasons new cars run at higher temps. The main reason is emissions, the higher temps assist in burning off hydrocarbons. Another reason is internal condensation. There are many places in the engine where water will condense as the car cools. If you get the fluid temps over 212 the condensation boils off.

Bottom line, it's normal.
