Definitely i20 between the two going by higher weight. But both of them are unlikely to be safe during high speed crash. Any car for that matter. Although we cant judge how safe the Baleno is unless the NCAP ratings are out. If you don't drive at speeds over 120kmph on regular basis then Baleno might be fine. These hatchbacks loose thier limits post 120/130 kmph. To prevent that the roads must be next to excellent, which isn't the case in most of our countries.
Although the Light weight has given Maruti advantage in terms of FE, they should have added weight and made the car feel more confidential.
I have never driven my i20 beyond 130 kmph. Although it is stable at that speed, it doesn't inspire confidence, same will be the case with Baleno. Still, if you have liked Baleno go ahead with it and drive safely.
