hmmm dude, u seem to be stuck in a dilemma that is not actually much of a dilemma...!
New city AT has a 5 speed AT gear box... no CVT.
GLi is 4 speed AT but with 1.6 engine and a few more goodies like ECO drive feature, gate type shift lever, greater interior space etc etc.
City has awesome drive bro... excellent handling, excellent braking performance. BUT the only factor is its Rock like hard suspension system.
Gli is more like a family sedan. Softer, lighter easy drive...
Long story short, if u want a family car, Greater interior space, better resale, go for GLi.
If u want to be a bit on the economy side and can live with a bit hardy suspension, less resale value, go for city...
P.S giving u my advice generally... not as a honda city fan..
