He made a strong start against Bautista Agut as he broke for a 4-3 lead.
Bautista Agut had a chance to hit back when Coric served for the set, but the Croatian held firm with a smash.
An ace sealed the first set for Coric and another one won the match after he had opened up a 4-1 lead in the second set tie-break.
Cilic overcame an error-strewn display that included 15 double faults to beat Pablo Carreno Busta 5-7 6-3 7-6(5) in a thrilling match.
Cilic struggled in the first set, finishing with 22 unforced errors compared to two from the Spaniard.
Carreno Busta won the last three games of the set to take the lead.
