Sentinel XS: Misc

A Sentinel XS in GTA Vice City (Rear quarter view).

The Sentinel XS is a sportier variant of the regular Sentinel luxury car. It has appeared in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV.



Ever since the Sentinel's introduction in GTA III, a sportier variant has been present in every GTA game, excluding GTA San Andreas. In GTA III and Liberty City Stories, only the Leone Family gang members drive this car, and it is therefore known as the Mafia Sentinel and Leone Sentinel, respectively. In GTA Vice City Stories, the Sentinel XS is the preferred gang car of the Mendez Cartel.

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. The Sentinel XS in GTA Vice City and Vice City Stories is based on the BMW M5.

GTA IV features an updated Sentinel XS, however it is no longer considered a distinct vehicle — it handles identically to the Sentinel, and the game refers to the car simply as "Sentinel" when entered. In a nod to the Mafia Sentinel of GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories it serves as one of two cars (the other being the PMP 600) that are usually driven by the Mafia. Its visual differences include "XS" badging, and a rear spoiler sporting "STD" decals. STD stands for "Sentinel Tuning Division", likely a play on Subaru's STi marque and BMW's in-house tuning division, BMW M, but also a reference to the acronym for "sexually transmitted disease". The features of the GTA IV Sentinel XS emulate the BMW M3 GTR.
