Personally, it depends on what you want. If you are willing to sacrifice some visual options in favor of performance, the XS is your go-to. If you would like to cruise in style, instead of cruise with speed, the Cabrio (regular Sentinel) is the perfect choice for you.

 

Is there a diff in performance?

Very slightly. My XS accelerates faster than the Cabrio that I fully modded for my friend. Both had equal modifications, and both were non-turbo starts during Arms Race. The XS overtook the Cabrio right off the line, but only slightly.

Why not just get the Carbinizzer over the Sentinal? Both are hardtop convertibles, but Carbinizzer is fast af.

Honestly, they should of made it so if you go to Michaels house you can actually sometimes see him/his family out doing stuff and you could steal one of his cars (Tail' Issy / sentinel)


You can...

Amanda Desantos' sentinel XS randomly spawns in the driveway.

If you find a XS save it and use it to drive around, youll find a normal one, Just worked for me. Cars spawn based on what your driving.

Anyone care to tell me the difference? Is the XS just the sport version?

Yes. The convertible looks better.

You've probably seen a convertible Sentinel more times than you realise. When driving by they look really similar to a Felon GT or even the Zion Cabrio, although the Zion is easiest to pick out of the 3.

To find mine I drove my XS around for a while, eventually caused every second car to spawn as the covertable version

Only thing I don't like about the vert is that I cant change the tops color.

 

I had a black one with red interior, wanted the convertible top to be red too.

The Convertible you can change the top color, it's the secondary color

 

The XS you can't change the roof because it's a permanent black.

 

Edit; The sentinel doesn't look like the Felon GT. That I can distinguish pretty easily

 

And in my experience the sentinel spawns a lot less frequently than the zion cabrio or the oracle, two cars that I have seen so much of while I was sentinel hunting that I vowed to never have either of those 2 cars in my garage, ever lol

STFU what? lol

 

Was this recently added, I swear to god I have changed the color scheme on mine multiple times and never has there been a secondary color scheme option.

 

Matter of fact every time I see one on the street its always a black top, along with other players personal vehicles.

surprised that the XS is gettin' no love, 'cause i think it is one of the most well-rounded cars in town. good acceleration, awesome handling, decent top speed and bulletproof durability. i find it to be quite an effective tool for free roam combat.

I have both!! Someone from the forum gave me a convertible last night, so I havent really done much to it yet. My xs has been my favorite all around car since I found it and fully suped it up. Im still deciding if I want to keep both or let one go to make room for a different car

I think the XS is much better to drive but still beaten by many other options, I found the cabrio lacked traction off the line, the XS is OK but my Entity or even the Oracle seemed a far better drive. The cabrio looks nice but that's about it for me.

Seriously, Normal Sentinel is like every-goddamn-where... I'd say XS is the rare one in my case.

My main character has the Sentinel XS, second has just picked up a Sentinel Cabrio.

Although overall I think the Zion actually handles way better than the Sentinel. The Sentinel are much more aggressive, fun and challenging to drive around.

i actually prefer my XS to the normal sentinel, i tested both out in single player before deciding which to go for, then found my sentinel xs in michaels driveway in online

 

its fast becoming my go to car for free-roam, although ive changed the colour to red with a yellow pearlescent since this pic

Complete opposite to me.

 

I remember someone looking for the Cabrio posted that they were looking for a Sentinel.  I hunted one for them, and found an XS within 5 minutes, but then they said they were specifically looking for the Cabrio,

 

The XS can also be easily acquired from the Black Sentinel dude who appears when you join sessions a lot of the time.  Not rare at all, and not near as cool as the Cabrio version.
