Moonroof vs. Sunroof: What's the Difference?

2023 Toyota Camry Red Interior on downtown street with Sunroof

 

Many drivers refer to moonroofs and sunroofs as the same thing. However, they aren’t the same. What’s the difference between a sunroof and moonroof? The key differences between a sunroof and moonroof are:

  • Sunroofs are usually opaque panels made of metal, or even canvas in some cases, that are installed in the roof of a vehicle. They pop up, can be removed, or slide open to allow light and air into the cabin.
  • Moonroofs, on the other hand, are usually a clear or tinted glass panel that slides between the roof and the headliner. They can sometimes also be tilted open to let in fresh air. Moonroofs are sometimes, but not always, larger than sunroofs.

Keep on reading to find out more and to see which roof you’d like better for your next new Albuquerque ride.

What is a Sunroof?

Classic sunroofs are opaque panels on the top of a vehicle that match the rest of the body color. Generally, they can be tilted open or sometimes even taken off, so that you can let the sun fill inside the cabin as you’re commuting around Rio Rancho.

What is a Moonroof?

A moonroof is a type of sunroof, and it can also typically slide or tilt open. Then, what’s the difference between a sunroof and a moonroof? A moonroof is made of glass and can’t be removed from your vehicle. They usually come with an interior sliding panel that you can slide open to access the moonroof itself. The panel typically matches the vehicle’s interior to flow seamlessly with the rest of the materials. Most modern cars nowadays feature a moonroof rather than a sunroof.

What Are Panoramic Roof Systems?

After learning about the differences between a sunroof and a moonroof, you should also know about panoramic roof systems. The types of sunroofs and moonroofs include pop-up, spoiler, inbuilt, top-mount, solar, and removable– with panoramic roof being one of the most popular. These are usually available on most mainstream models or standard on many luxury cars. Since they come with multiple panels in the roof that are either operable or fixed, passengers can open the panel for fresh air and sunlight when the weather’s nice out in Espanola.
