Default Which models have 2nd gear start hill holder on automatic tranny?

I drove an ATX 2011 Impreza today.

It has the manumatic shifter. From dead stop, it can be placed into 1st or 2nd. The 2nd is documented in the manual for low traction condition starting.

Something I noticed while playing around is that when you do a 2nd gear start from dead stop is that it automatically activates hill holder.

Put the car into 1st or D and it will roll back as usual, but put it in 2nd and hill holder kicks in.

This isn't mentioned in manual as far as I can tell. Do all new Subarus have this feature?
