Basic safety features have been made mandatory for every car so no matter what car you buy you will get ABS airbags as standard.
Other safety features like ESC, hill start assist etc comes in car costing over 20 lakhs. So don't get confused.
Get an upper model variant and you will get a touchscreen system with GPS.
Other features which should be present - Bluetooth calling , steering mounted audio controls , rear defogger, rear wiper and fog lamps are optional.

As rightly suggested above by @allhyundaicars, go through the brochures of cars falling in your budget. Short list your priorities like:
> Engine: Petrol or Diesel
> Capacity: 1.0L or 1.2L for Petrol or 1.5 Diesel
> Whether you need Turbo or Non Turbo
> Seating i.e Number of people travelling at one time 2,3,5,7
> Transmission: AMT, Manual, iMT
> Monthly as well as Annual Running
> Self Driven or Chauffeur Driven
> Highway Driving or City Driving
> How much should be the maintenance cost as per you.
