how to pick the right toilet for a tight space?

We will be renovating our guest bathroom which is pretty small. One question is to how to pick the right toilet. The photo shows what we have now. The rough-in size is 12". The bowl itself is 14" wide. As you can see, the shower wall extends very close to the toilet. We will make that wall a bit narrower but it's still going to be tight. So:
1. Are there elongated bowls that are narrower that 14"?
2. Would you recommend on-piece or two-piece toilet? Our budget is relatively low so our goal is to have something practical and durable not fancy. However, paying extra for a toilet that will be more convenient to use, clean and repair is an option.
3. Any other things to consider when picking a piece for the tight space?

Use a corner model. This will allow you to rotate the throne away from the protruding wall of the shower.
