Turning behavoir on these cars

Anyone else notice that when you are in a turn the car does not seamlessly glide into the turn? Almost like it does a semi downshift. Its nit picky but I find it a little irritating . Most vehicles will glide into a turn if you dont have your foot on the accelerator as if the car is in neutral, but not mine. Whats up with that? Even in eco mode it still slows me down when Im turning. Im guessing there is no way to get rid of that? I can understand accelerating out of turn but not into one.

I think it has to do with the regeneration feature, when you take the foot off the gas the car slows to recharge the battery?
