Moving back to manual from automatic; 1.5 l to 1.2 l for city driving

Hello, I am using a Honda City Automatic since last 5 years. Avg usage is 7k kms / year. Max speed of 120 kmph and avg of 50 kmph. Mainly for within city driving. Now I am planning for a new car in 2 months. Three questions A) is opting for a lower power like 1.2 ltr Jazz/ Baleno a good option? Will the downgrade be perceptible for my requirements mentioned. B) is opting for a manual instead of automatic a good one as it increase the options. C) should I wait for Suzuki Vitara or Honda BRV? Thanks in advance.
