It's always a little disappointing to sample a convertible during the colder months in Michigan, but Audi's S5 is one of the few drop-tops I could seriously consider using in both sun and snow. Competitors boast of insulation and seat heaters, but few (if any) offer an all-wheel-drive system as formidable as Quattro. Seat heaters also help keep things toasty, but if you're planning on occasionally dropping the top during low temperatures, spring for the comfort package. Sure, it does away with these sexy two-tone sport seats, but you do gain embedded neck-level heat vents, a la the Mercedes-Benz Airscarf system.
