vibrating in drive when car is stationary / transmission

I just bought a 2017 Ti x trail 2.5 L petrol. car is new .
when I am stopped at the lights and in drive, after around 20 seconds car starts to vibrate a little ( not excessive) but enough to annoy me. idle set at around 620 rpm.
Any ideas what is causing this and how we can fix this?
I took it back to the dealership for 1000 km check up and they said it is normal ? my friend bought the same car and it does not do this so it is definitely not normal. They also said they cannot adjust the idle rpm up a little which I thought might help.
If I put the air con on, does not seem to vibrate as much also ?
Also when slowing down, and gentle braking applied at around 20 km /hr, transmission seems to jump a little sometimes ?
Not sure if the 2 are related ?
I would appreciate any thoughts / ideas

Unfortunately i can't tell you exactly what the issue is, but can definitely confirm it is not normal.

I have test driven several of the new Xtrails to see what difference there is to the 2012 i own, surprisingly other than the new body and nice interior the mechanical side is very similar.

The first 2 i drove were very smooth, no vibrations or gear changing noticeable.
The third i drove seemed to respond in a similar fashion to what you say. When i queried this with the dealer i got the same standard response. its the way the car is.

It's funny that your issue is lessened if you turn the air con on. The reason i say this is because the air con puts extra strain on the engine as the compressor engages. In my car i had the air con coil assembly replaced, which stopped the vehicle from nearly stalling when air con was on and car in idle.

I have spoken with a mechanic friend and he has suggested to take the car to 2 separate dealerships and see what they say. If you have the time also take it to a mechanic you trust and get his opinion.

As the car is new it will be covered by warranty.
