Hesitant gearbox 2.4 JTDm

I've had my 159 2.4 JTDm Ti SW for a month, and am loving it. The only niggle is a tendency for the automatic gearbox to be caught out on a trailing throttle, with an awkward little jump as it downchanges to a lower gear when I then accelerate. Having stepped from a manual 147 GTA, I'm not sure if this hesitency is expected in an automatic turbodiesel? Wasn't there on a turbodiesel Toyota Prado I recently hired.

Any thoughts?
