Moonroof vs. Sunroof: What's the Difference?

Sunroof on an SUV

Are you letting the sun or the moon through the roof of your car when you’re driving through Stephenville? And what is the difference between a sunroof and moonroof, anyway? It’s pretty simple: A sunroof is made of glass or metal that slides open or pops up to allow light to flow into the cabin. The difference between a sunroof and a moonroof is the latter is a clear or tinted glass that can slide between the roof and headliner, tilting open for fresh air. Learn more with Bayer Auto Group:

There are many types of moonroof vs. sunroof systems in cars all around Brownwood. Here are a few examples of popular ones:

  • Panoramic: large or multi-panel moonroof with openings above the front and rear seats that can be made of operable or fixed glass panels
  • Pop-up:  a manually operated tilting panel that’s usually removable
  • Spoiler: tilts to vent, and slides open above the roof
  • Inbuilt: a panel that slides between the metal roof and interior headliner

What are Panoramic Roof Systems?

Panoramic roof systems are becoming the most popular roof systems, no matter the difference between a sunroof and a moonroof. They’re often standard on many luxury cars because of their ability to cover large areas of the vehicle’s roof and filter large amounts of sunlight and fresh air into all areas of the cabin.
