You should go for Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone Turanza AR20. Both these tyres offer superb wet and dry grip, precise handling and comfort. But out of these two, Michelin would offer a better ride comfort while Turanza would be more durable over rough roads. So, decide accordingly.
If you want something cost effective then go for Yokohama Earth-1 tyre.
Sadly, there isn't a universal definition of "Best" when it comes to tyres. We all have our different priorities and preferences. But I would try to suggest you something which would tick all the right boxes.
You should look at buying Michelin Energy XM2 tyres of Bridgestone Turanza AR20 for your Xing. Both these tyres offer superb grip, handling and tread life. They both make use of Silica in their rubber compound. This increases grip levels over wet surfaces and enhance tyre life. But Michelin Energy XM2 would offer a more comfortable and quiet ride quality.
In case you want something cost-friendly, then go for MRF ZVTS. It offers confident wet and dry grip and a long tyre life, but is a bit noisy , especially at high speeds.
Yokohama Earth-1 is also a very good tyre and delivers a great performance. It is also priced somewhere between MRF and Bridgestone/MIchelin. So, if you can afford to spend a bit more than MRF then you should go for this.
I'd suggest maintaining the same size but opting for a softer compound tyre for better grip on highways. With an upsize, you run the risk of either tyres rubbing against the wheel well or you'll have to opt for low profile tyres, which will take away the comfort on rough roads.
This Bridgestone Turanza is the same size as your existing tyre. It's good for touring, contains road noise and offers excellent wet road grip.
Yokohama Earth 1 is another one to look at. It's even better at containing road noise:
However, if you absolutely want to upsize, then here are two options to consider with the tyre spec 185/70 R14.
MRF ZLO is the first. It displaces water very well at the cost of contact patch for dry conditions.
The Turanza is another tyre that's almost as good at displacing water but maximises the amount of rubber in touch with the tarmac for maximum dry grip.
These MRF ZVTS will last a long time and are also very affordable. Many compact cars come with these tyres from the factory.
Spending a little more for the Bridgestone B290 will give you better grip and much less road noise.
These Bridgestone Turanzas are the cream, though. They are extremely quiet and the grip on wet roads is exceptional. As expected, the price is also on the higher side.
My personal recommendation would be the B290 as it offers a fantastic balance of grip, road noise and aren't that pricey either.
You can go for Bridgestone tyres. They offer great performance and durability. We would recommend Bridgestone Turanza AR20 tyres. You can also look at Bridgestone B290. They are quite good in terms of comfort, reliability and traction level, hoever, not as good at Turanza.
However, if your car's running is low and you are looking for something more economical then MRF ZVTS would be a good option.
Hankook Optimo K424 ME02 is a pretty good tyre, offers a good comfortable ride with great traction and handling, yet, Bridgestone Turanza AR20 is a better buy.
This is because AR20 consists of silica enriched compound which makes for superior wet performance and also enhances tyre life. Even the comfort on this tyre is pretty good. Also, Bridgestone has better after sales support as compared to Hankook.
You can begin with MRF ZV2K. It offers good traction and long tyre life. A better option however would be Goodyear Assurance Triplemax. This tyre offers superior handling and wet performance. Even the tyre life is good.
If you could stretch your budget more then go for Yokohama Earth-1 tyres. They come with solid construction and are silica enriched. This helps in offering superior grip.
Top of the line options would be Bridgestone Turanza AR20 or Michelin Energy XM2. Michelins would offer the best ride comfort but would not be very durable over rough roads.
You can go for this upsize. In fact, 185/65 R15 is the stock tyre size on Swift ZXI/ZDI. You can go for MRF ZVTV to begin with. This tyre offers good wet and dry grip and has long tyre life, although it is a little noisy.
You can also consider Bridgestone B290. It is better than ZVTV in all aspects.
If you want great tyres and budget is not an issue then go for Continental ContiConfortContact CC5. You could also look at Bridgestone Turanza AR20 or Michelin Energy XM2.

You can go for Yokohama Earth-1 tyre. It is a good option to begin with. It offers good traction and long tyre life and is also economical.
Anything better than this would include Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone Turanza AR20. While Michelin offers better ride comfort, yet Turanza is more durable to rough roads.
Hands down, Michelin energy XM2 is a far better tyre. In case you are comparing Michelin Energy XM1 then go for Bridgestone B250 as it is more durable. In case your usage is more over rough or unpaved surface then Bridgestone Turanza AR20 would be a better option instead of Energy XM2.
