Description

"You try paying for a high-end one of these - and alimony."
- Official Vice City Bureau of Investigation file description, GTA Vice City.[1]


Ever since the Sentinel's introduction in GTA III, a sportier variant has been present in every GTA game, excluding GTA San Andreas. The Sentinel XS's main visual distinction from the regular Sentinel is its spoiler and rear window grilles; performance-wise, the car is faster than the regular Sentinel, suggestively alluding on the BMW M5, although the car, like regular Sentinels, is still visually similar to the E23 7 Series BMW, which was not used in the M5 series. In GTA Vice City Stories, the Sentinel XS is not given the same aesthetic modification as the game's Sentinel, resulting in the car appearing more distinctive in the game. The Sentinel XS also emit a different engine sound than the regular Sentinel.

The Sentinel XS is the preferred gang car of the Mendez Cartel in GTA Vice City Stories.

Trivia

  • XS is a homophone of "excess," which may refer to the cars modifications that don't actually affect its performance in GTA IV.
  • In the November 8, 2012 Game Informer preview of GTA V, Michael's wife, Amanda, is stated to have driven a "Sentinel XS". It is currently unknown if the car follows GTA IV's naming convention of simply referring to a Sentinel with "XS" badges as a "Sentinel" in HUD, or if the car is to be officially referred as a "Sentinel XS".
