YES! AWD. I was given a FWD non-turbo loaner, and in the rain it was a mess. I was used to my turbo CX5, and I was spinning all over the place. The AWD does a TON for you in this vehicle. If you don't get it, I wouldn't bother with the turbo, either, because you're obviously not buying the vehicle for performance reasons at this point. That's literally how strongly I feel about the AWD in it. Don't even bother with more power, the 186hp overwhelms it in FWD on anything but perfectly clean, dry pavement. With my GTR, I could floor it. In the rain. It would dead hook. In the rain if you floor the FWD even without the turbo, it's going to spin badly, lol. Corners are another area where it matters, maybe even moreso.
Otherwise your mission statement is at odds with each other, unless you want the turbo solely for 50mph+ passing maneuvers or something.
