2005 Mercedes-Benz S430

Enlarge Photo
The big-buck S-Class continues atop Mercedes' sedan line for 2005 with relatively few changes. The rear-drive S430 and S500 versions come powered by V-6 and V-8 engines, respectively, which drive the rear wheels via a seven-speed-automatic transmission. A 5.5-liter supercharged V-8 in the S55 AMG variant produces 493 horsepower, while the twin-turbo V-12 in the S600 generates the same power, but with greater low-end torque. A laundry list of features from virtually every page of Mercedes parts list includes four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, front- and rear-side and side-curtain airbags, Automatic Slip Control, Electronic Stability Program, an adaptive suspension, variable-focus headlamps, a satellite navigation system, premium Bose audio system, leather upholstery, and heated windshield washers.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
