All cars have parking lights. They are also referred to as marker lights.

Move the headlight switch one click to turn on parking lights. The second click is the headlights, which keeps the marker lights on. This has been how all cars have done it since the 1940's and probably earlier than that. Up until the 1960's or 1970's, depending on manufacturer and the laws in each country, the front marker lights would turn off when the headlights were turned on.

Newer cars with Auto Headlights are supposed to turn on the headlights for you when it senses that it is dark enough. In this case, moving the switch from Auto one click will turn off the headlights but keep the marker lights on.
