Should I fit Michelin Cross Climate tyres to my 2017 Ford Fiesta?

I intend to fit Michelin cross climate or similar to improve ride comfort on my 2017 Fiesta. Tyres currently fitted are 195/55 R15. The tyre pressure indication plate shows this size or 195/50 R16. The manual also lists 195/60 R15. Given this higher profile may improve ride comfort further and are less expensive, what would you recommend?

The tyre sizes for a 2017 Fiesta 1.0T Ecoboost are: 175/65 R14; 195/60 R15 ; 195/55 R16 ; 205/45 ZR17 ; 205/40ZR18. But, confusingly, the sizes for a 1.25 are: 175/65 R14; 195/55 R15 ; 195/45 R16 and 195/50 R16. I think the 195/60 R15 is for the Active.
