Hey OP you might look into a Toyota Yaris sedan, if that fits the bill. Might not be capable of the towing level you want, but it's possible to get a manual transmission. Has electric mirrors, windows, and power steering.

That said, it was difficult for me to track down an '09 Yaris sedan with manual back in 2012, so it might be really difficult to find one now. The reason I can recommend it the most is that I did literally nothing but oil changes, and replaced the serpentine belt once. Drove it from 28,500 miles to ~100,000 miles and had absolutely 0 mechanical issues. And due to hypermiling I was still on the factory brake pads.
Nissan Leaf driver? Join me in Team Leaf and feel smugly superior about our MPGe
