Not sure if this has been discussed yet. Did a quick search and didnt find anything on the first few pages.

Anyway, theyre both based on BMW so im looking for opinions.

Which do you prefer and why?

Feel free to post pics of your own.

The Sentinel, is fast and stuff.

 

The Zion is relaxed and a good vehicle to transport other players.

Sentinel every single time. The Zion is like a cheap knock off of the Sentinel. The Sentinel, especially the XS is much faster than the Zion and looks better too.

 

It's down to you at the end of the day, which one you prefer to drive. I would prefer the Sentinel though.

What is the Zion XS?

 

I know you have the hard-top non-convertible Zion and the Zion cabrio. I have yet to see an XS version? Or are you confusing it with something else?

 

Do you mean the Sentinel XS?

The hard-top Zion has a "XS" badge on the rear truck lid, but the game doesn't call it the "Zion XS"

The Zion has the ugliest rear end of any car in the game.

It also seems the Zion has less customization options.

The Sentinel XS is the longest surviving car in my garage. It has maximum drivability for me. Not as all-purpose as a Sultan, but I think it handles well for chases and such in the city. Sharp corners and what have you.

The sentinel of course. It's one of the best looking cars in the game if you ask me plus the top down animation is very unique. In terms of performance it's pretty decent so I prefer it over the Zion

Sentinel XS is my trophy first kill. Well I thought it was a player off radar who tried to kill me but it was the NPC. Also kept it b/c it has some sick visual mods and handles really well. It wasn't the fastest coupe but has great handling. It's lame that it's in SPORTS now as if it can beat the Elegy or Carbo. Stupid R*. The Sentinel XS is my freeroam car of choice b/c it's nimble and I think the roll cage offers decent protection from the back. Only $500 for MMI insurance too if a tank blows me up.

 

But the Zion XS is sick too. Not visually appealing but it's faster than the Sentinel XS. Not worthy of a garage space though.

 

AS far as the cabrio for each... no convertible has better mechanics than the Sentinel XS.

Zion every time, simply a better car to drive - I've messed around with Sentinel's a few times but I always move them on and go back to the Zion. One of the best and fastest cars around the city - perfect balance of acceleration, braking, speed and handling.

I've driven the zion a few times. its nice, tidy. But the sentinel is the best out of the 2 imo. Drives better and looks better

I don't like either. But if I had to choose one it would be the Sentinel.

Ubermacht, huh?

Sentinel feels like it's a racer. I like it. Zion on the other hand feels slick, low and smooth. I like that as well. I choose Zion, though.


But still, Obey > Ubermacht.

Sentinel XS(Sports) is sharper, faster, more moddable than Sentinel(Coupe) cabrio. But simply because i spent 2 weeks trying to find Sentinel cabrio one, it became a keeper. My other cabrio is carbonizzare, might replace it with Roosevelt but not too sure if its worth it.

Obey Tailgater is one of most boring cars to drive, I'm sorry to reveal the truth. It looks sleek, but I preffer faster (sedan)Benefactor Shafter.

I really enjoy my Sentinel. But was considering adding a Zion to the garage also. Sill may do it. It just gave me the idea to create this thread to start a discussion on the two cars.

I have a sentinel (not XS) its a nice car I use to have the Zion, the Zion was ugly so I got rid of it, it's more about looks then performance for me.

I am all about looks as well.

I dont think the Zion is that bad. Its kind of long from bumper to bumper. Looks like it was meant to be 4 door. 85F4BFD6-04A5-46C4-ACD0-D03171338F4C.jpg

I think most people just have some kind of nostalgia for the sentinel. From experience the Zion feels so much lighter on the streets. The sentinel has too much wheel spin and feels like it struggles to rev high

For some reason I prefer the regular Sentinel over the XS. I don't find the XS any faster, at any rate.

this shouldnt even be up for discussion..the Sentinel hands down, i think its even better than the XS, because of the hard top convertable
