One of my collegues has pointed me to a site that says the keyless
entry is an option:
 Optional on the XL and standard on the XLS are anti-theft device with
keyless entry system, aluminum wheels and power bucket seats.

I'll call a Toyota dealer and get to the bottom of it on Monday!

   The keyless entry option from  is a
better solution as one does not need to carry car keys.

One can enter by using his fingerprint.Its called Identisafe-09
fingerprint keyless entry system.

I have used it on my Toyota for a period of a year now.
I hope i have answered your question.

Also check for comparison between RF keyless entry and Fingerprint keyless entry.

I feel fingerprint keyles entry and ignition start is more secure.Well
you can still use or keys also.
