Creaking sound on hills

I have a 2010 Fortwo Passion. Whenever I am on a steep incline and begin to accelerate I have what sounds like a creaking sound from the rear. Anyone have any ideas?

I agree with Bob. When accelerating on a hill, the center of gravity shifts toward back. This results in back end of the car squatting a little bit.
Looking at the bushings and lubricating them is a good place to start.
