The surge you might notice is the "rev-matching" when manually gearing down... that's normal. When the transmission is in DS mode you'll notice earlier gear down (engine braking) without the surge when coming to a stop.

If the auto box is left in automatic you shouldn't feel anything.

If you engage "auto hold" the brakes are applied as soon as the car comes to a stop and the car will not move unless you physically step on the gas pedal.
