I posed same question recently and was told that it's the catalytic converters getting broken in. Asked the parts guy at the dealer when I was in there and he said the same thing.

I know what you are talking about and I wouldn't exactly call it a burning smell, but a hot smell, yes... hard to describe.

I have just over 150 miles on mine now and it's no longer noticeable.

New cars have a lot of greases and oils and stickers and things that all get burned off as the car gets used. It's ok, no need to panic.

Oops, typo, I have just over 250 miles on mine. The smell is completely gone now.
