Based on other people's experience and form what I've read, the WS70 will make a much stronger first impression in all winter conditions - but the degradation from season to season will probably be much greater than the Michelin's. In addition to wearing better, the Michelins will feel more like an all season tire in dry & rainy conditions.

For the cars you mentioned, which are not particularly challenging to to drive in the winter, I would consider shopping around for something a little less pricey.

The Altimax is one possibility. I also highly recommend the Gislaved Nordfrost 5 - I ran one for two winters on a Saturn Coupe then gave to my sister for her Civic which she used the past four winters - they handled Toronto & Niagara conditions extremely well, wear is slow & even and for cars of this type, there is really no dry weather performance drop off compared to low & midrange all-seasons.

I've run both Blizzaks and Xi3's, and I have to say the Michelins win on performance and amazing treadwear, a 40,000 mile warranty on a snow tire, unheard of before now.
