I own a cvt-i
Major difference are sunroof and climate controls
Minor: dual airbag, paddle shifters (cvt-i one does have tiptronic), leather seats and height adjusters.
It does have retractable side mirrors, but not the one that reteracts on lock/unlock
Too many differences for very little price difference.
The latest grande has climate control but CVTi w/o sunroof doesn't have it.
Other differences are
rain sensing wipers
Lights under sun visors
Height adjuster for seat
Silver gear shift knob vs black of CVTi
Rear reading lights
And the new one has steering controls but the previous CVTi didn't have them either.
