I am not sure about CRDI engine, as I have not driven it..
Currently I am using my i10 1.2 Petrol which is good and having proper engine for City Driving...
I td the elite i20 with 3 people. Yes it was sluggish but the power delivery was linear. True you will have to downshift to overtake on highways but i guess you will have to do this in most of the cars.
I td the jazz on the same day with 3 people and i was shocked to see that the engine just won't move the car. At higher rpm the power was noticeable but still sluggish. If you have main usage in city then go for the elite i20.
I also test drove the polo petrol but the long clutch travel was tiring for me.
Take a look at the toyota liva as well. Agreed it does not have the best interiors and the build quality but the car was fun to drive. The brakes were really good with a very effective AC.
My choice would be the elite i20 if budget is not a problem. I get 10 kmpl in my verna petrol , grand i10 gives 14 kmpl so i20 should return between 12-14 kmpl.
