If your budget is in range of 7 Lakh to 8 Lakh then to view CVT Automatic as what offered in Maruti Baleno and Honda Amaze is better

Choose Amaze if your majority (almost 95%) usage is in City as this car is what best meant for City Use, while choose Baleno if your usage is mix of both City and Highway as somehow Maruti Baleno has rather stiffer suspension for superior high speed dynamics

No, CVT by definition is Continuous Variable transmission, which means the ratios can be adjusted continuously.
When they come with a paddle shifter (6/7 Spd normally), they fix 6/7 ratios for the speed.
