Default Used car 15-20 range

I'm doing some research for my buddy who's starting to look at cars. He's trying to get out of his '06 Corolla.

He lives in Wisconsin so he's trying to get an AWD if possible. He also prefers manual. Looking to spend $15-20. He doesn't particularly like hatchbacks, but its not totally out of the question. Also trying to look at something 2008 or newer.

Cars I've thought of so far: Infiniti G35x, Volvo S60 R, VW GTI, Audi A3/A4, Subaru Impreza WRX

The hard part is just finding something that's easy enough to find in manual in his area. Any other suggestions on what to look for?

AWD Cadillac CTS.

Something like this
2008 Cadillac CTS 3.6 AWD

They can be had under $20k if you get one with a few miles. Can't beat it for luxury AWD bank for buck. Only downside is no manual on the AWD versions. Manual can be had with RWD versions.

Nice car... I like. I think he's going to want something with a lot fewer miles in general, though. He's only 23 as well so I doubt he'll be very eager to jump on a Caddy, though these newer ones look pretty cool.
