IDK this specific vehicle but almost anything even this model year with a key you can copy to fit a lock and tumblers but it may set off alarms and isn't going to run engine.
A copy usually has to be done by a locksmith with correct key blanks or chips AND still may need to acquaint that to the vehicle.

If a cut key it should have opened a door it's not uncommon to mis-cut metal keys that don't work right or at all,

That's not a vehicle we have here in the US so I don't have anything specific to that car but most all vehicles these days are equipped with an immobilizer and chipped keys have to be registered or programmed to the vehicle before it will start.
