keyless ignition?

Does the Giulia/Stelvio have keyless ignition?

I see that the Feds are talking about requiring all new vehicles with keyless ignition to shut off after a certain amount of time if the car is parked but with engine running, due to the fact that many drivers seem to accidentally leave the engine idling after parking, and if the car is in a garage, the CO produced can kill house occupants. Another proposal is to have the horn beep several time and/or the car audibly warn the driver that the car is still idling after parking.

They are also thinking of requiring that a car cannot be moved if the engine is not shut after parking. The legislation would require carmakers to install technology that prevents a car from moving if the driverís door is opened, the driverís seat buckle is unfastened, and a brake is not engaged.

I'm personally not sure the idea of a keyless setup is worth it, having found that real keys work just fine, and without the associated electronics/complexity of the keyless idea.
