A20N Engine Start

The A320NEO seems to take an age between pushback and engine startup to request for taxi. Would a more learned subscriber venture the reason(s) why? After push and start the other day, we waited for the 'request taxi' call and an inbound to the ramp had to hold short waiting for the outbound. The flight deck commented on R/T "yes, we're in the NEO; it takes forever..." - what's different about the NEO that makes for a longer startup time? Thanks for enlightening me!
