Default 2012 Impreza CVT shift delay

I'm wondering if what I'm experiencing is typical with a CVT transmission and/or the 2012 Impreza.

Shifting from Park to Drive
Park to Reverse
Reverse to Drive

All comes with about a 2 second delay in the transmission actually shifting.

When shifting into drive the car almost lurches forward once it engages, possibly due to how I'm holding the brake in, I think it's more that it still catches me off guard.

Is anyone else having this issue? I checked with Uncle Google and it seems like there are a lot of message boards across multiple make/models where people are saying the same general thing, but the same thing keeps coming out "it's my first CVT, is this normal?" with no real info if it is.
