Sporty car: Audi A5 Cabriolet
Price: $42,000
Mileage: 30 Hwy, 23 City
Annual fuel cost: $1,629
Like really good low-fat ice cream, the A5 Cabriolet offers plenty of pleasure with less guilt. And, at the press of a button, you can enjoy it with a topping or without.

The reason the convertible A5 holds this distinction and not the hard-top version, is that the convertible is available without all-wheel-drive. The hard-top isn't. Added to that, the front-wheel-drive A5 Cabriolet also gets a continuously variable transmission which, besides being slightly more efficient than Audi's six-speed transmission, weighs less, too.
