When was car last serviced and the likes of plugs checked ? Many possible causes , see how it goes next time from cold , may have been a one off. If not get back to board for info / help .

If it's only doing it at cold start , could be engine coolant temp sensor . But see how it goes . You may have to get a diagnostic scan check if it persists .Also depends on what service and parts were fitted as some do very little , basically only levels , tyre checks etc .Also depends if it's to dealer servicing recommendations and also mileage on car .

prior to starting had it been on a short run or stop started on the drive if so this will be the cause
