New 3G hardtop or Countryman?

Newb here and looking for advice.

Been looking at minis on line and went to dealer yesterday to see firsthand. Loved the size of the countryman but also loved what mini has done with 3G hardtop.

What is consensus on new 3G hardtop? Better?

Is it worthwhile to go 4wd? Does it add to the handling performance? We would not be going off road, but do get a lot of rain in western wa state and a little snow.

Is the Cooper works package worth it? While I want the MPG's, I do not think I would be happy in anything but an S or Cooper works.

6spd or automatic? Is the auto Fun to drive?

Thanks for helping me gain some insights!
