Safe but sexy

Introduction

When it was first launched, the automotive industry was impressed with the new steps that Volvo has taken to attract a younger group of drivers. It started first with the XC60 that was much different from the slightly boxy XC90.

Then we got a glimpse of the current S60 when the C70 was launched. When the S60 was launched, it was the first time anyone ever used ‘sexy’ and Volvo in the same sentence. The design that was penned by Steve Mattin embodied soulful character and emotion in the new sedan. A design that was both dynamic and elegant at the same time.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
