Default 2016 Swift GL Navigator Auto Delayed Take Off??

Would a 2016 Suzuki Swift GL Navigator 1.4 automatic with just over 2,000 kms on it need “running in”?
I checked out one today and it was amazing, until I drove it and it had delayed acceleration. At least a 1.5 second delay before it would take off, but that would be when I’d put my foot from on the break to flat on the accelerator. But still, a car should take off when you press the accelerator down hard, you need to when you need to move quick!
I had a 2016 base model two years ago, it didn’t have delayed acceleration.
I’m thinking does the car need to be ran in? Or would it already be ran in.
I’m so confused and I don’t understand why it’s having delayed acceleration!
Thanks for any help

If this is at a dealer, have them rectify...

This is a dealer issue, but only if somethings not set correctly. These things are usually like rocket ships.
If coming straight off the brake and flooring it, there will be a delay as the ECU is expecting a "sensible" thing to happen and not a sudden request for power that it may interpret as a "slipped foot" and the unit will default to "brake pedal override" where until brake pressure drops fully, acceleration will be delayed.

What happens if you take the foot off the brake and press the gas, not mash it to the firewall? as soon as it revs, then stomp on it. I think you will find it will behave normally at this point and you are actually triggering its "safety" feature to prevent "unintended acceleration"

And at 2000 kms it will be "run in" as far as the initial component bedding in procedure but won't reach its best until its done at least 10-15,000 kms.
