why does box only drop 2.5 litres.
Welcome. It is quite common for gearboxes (and other components) not to drop their entire contents when drained. There could be baffles inside the sump or an internal filter and/or oil pump that retains fluid. The main thing is that when you refill it, you let excess oil escape from the Fill/Level port so as not to overfill it.

A drain only releases around 2.5 litres. capacity is double that..approx. 
Honda's schedule cannot be a full drain.. That requires drain once, refill 2.5litres. Drive 15 minutes. drain again. Refill. That is more like 150+ worth of work..

It's actually just over 3 litres that drains out, it's because it's an automatic and oil remains in the operating parts of the gearbox, you can only drain all the oil if you open it up.

You need to get the service manual which is available via google or google how to check the CVT oil level because it's a bit of a process. Do not drive the vehicle until you've ensured the level is correct because you may cause expensive damage.
