How about.... Xcent? I am using one for few months and it is way better than what you mentioned, if it is Petrol. For diesel, I suggest you to go with Zest.
Xcent is a VFM car. But there have been serious quality issues with Xcent. The review at team-bhp says it doesnt even have a covering beneath it. So when you drive, anything will bounce and probably hit the engine, and other components from the base. Is it true?
Chevrolet sail is also a good sedan, if you want comfort and security. It has acres of space and has a safe cage structure. Also the engine and pickup is good.
There are quality concerned for amaze and xcent...the new Tata zest seems to be good overall, but I'd rather go for dzire as Maruti has better servicing centres( have owned santro, indica and sx4.. Hence, speaking from personal experience..) , much cheaper spare parts and are efficient.. Thus, peace of mind is assured..
The handling on the dzire is also pretty good...
