What wagon should I get?

I'm a college student and currently rocking a 2003 Acura cl type-s with a 6 speed. I'm a huge wagon fan and I want a fast wagon for my next car (which will probably be in 3-6 years from now), but I'm not quite sure what I want to get. For the past little while, I've been really liking the Volvo V70R because of its 300 hp turbocharged inline 5 with awd and it looks pretty cool, but I'm wondering if there are any better and possibly newer/easier to find options out there that I should consider. My budget will be probably around 10 grand, but I'll consider anything under $15k depending on what it is. I've also looked into a saab 9-3x wagon but they're incredibly hard to find and I think it's a little underpowered for what I want. Here's some of the criteria that are important:

- under $15k

- able to find them with under 150k miles (preferably under 100k but as long as they'll last another 70-100k miles it's not a big deal)

- awd (preferably) or at least rwd 

- ideally available in a manual trans but not required 

- fairly reliable

- 2004 or newer (the newer the better)

- fast and actually fun to drive

- cool looking 

I like to do as much research as I can on cars before I choose what I want because I wanna get the best car for my money so I like to have all the options I can. Any insight is welcome, thanks!
