A car definitely shouldn't unlock just by being near it with the key - but many modern cars have great feature where (if you have the key with you) they unlock the door as soon as you touch the handle, by having a touch sensor in the handle. So the effect is the same as a proximity unlock, but without the chance of accidentally unlocking it when you don't mean to.

Not sure why our Kias don't have that, maybe they decided it's too expensive.
