Moonroof vs. Sunroof: What’s the Difference

Many drivers use the words sunroof and moonroof interchangeably, but there’s a difference between the two. A sunroof is a panel made of glass or metal installed in the roof of a car, truck, or SUV. It slides open or pops up to allow light and air into the vehicle’s interior. A moonroof is typically a clear or tinted glass panel that slides within the roof and the headliner, and can often be tilted open to let in fresh air. Either will make the interior of your vehicle feel more open and spacious on our Waterford commute.

What Are Panoramic Roof Systems?

The different types of moonroofs and sunroofs include pop-up, spoiler, inbuilt, top-mount, solar, removable, electric, and electronic. A panoramic roof is one of the most popular offered as available options on more mainstream vehicles, or as a standard feature for many luxury cars. Panoramic roofs will typically come with multiple panels in the roof that are either fixed or operable. This allows front and rear passengers to open the panel for fresh air and sunlight, allowing you to enjoy the weather in Oakland County.

Used Vehicles with a Sunroof or Moonroof

At Bowman Chevrolet, we carry a large inventory of pre-owned cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans that feature either a sunroof, moonroof, or panoramic roof. The best way for Lake Orion-area shoppers to find a sunroof/moonroof-equipped vehicle is to browse our inventory. A few models to look out for include:

  • Acura – Acura MDX, RDX, TLX, and TSX models can be equipped with a power moonroof.
  • Chevrolet – A Chevy Suburban with a sunroof or an Equinox with a panoramic power sunroof are both great options. A used Chevrolet model offers a wide range of benefits for Highland drivers.
  • Honda – Among the many advantages of a used Honda is the power/tilt moonroof featured in models like the Accord, Civic, CR-V, Odyssey, Pilot, and Ridgeline.
  • Lexus – A power tilt/slide moonroof is available on select models of the Lexus ES, GX, LX, and RX.
  • Mercedes-Benz – Used Mercedes models feature the premium amenities you’d expect from a world-class luxury automaker, including a power tilt/slide tinted glass sunroof in the C-Class sedan, a sliding and tilting glass sunroof with sunshade in the E-Class, and a panoramic moonroof in the S-Class.
  • Toyota – Look for models like the Rav4, Land Cruiser, and Highlander which all can feature a power tilt/slide moonroof. Also, the Camry can come with a panoramic 2-panel moonroof. A moonroof is just one of the many benefits of driving a used Toyota.
