Reverse start down hill


We are new T Roc owners, picked it up last Friday. All good, but struggling with reverse start down hill.

Our driveway is quite a steep slope. With our old car, we would put it in reverse and gently roll back using gravity, then turn car on and drive off.

With the automated handbrake, we put the T Roc in reverse gear, then have to gently accelerate to start the car - at which point it shoot backwards fairly quickly - even being gentle on the accelerator. Can we get the car to roll back without pressing accelerate?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
