Cold start

When the engine is warm I typically press the start/stop button with the key in the ignition and the car starts right up. When it's cold outside and it's starting up, I hear the car struggling but then starts up - takes about 4 seconds or so. Is that normal? Thanks

I guess I'm just paranoid - I got the car a month ago and already changed all 12 coils and spark plugs, so now I am paranoid over everything.
