Moonroof vs. Sunroof: What's the Difference?


What’s the difference between a sunroof and moonroof? While many people use the terms interchangeably, there is 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, which slides open or pops up to allow light and air into the cabin.
  • A moonroof is usually a clear or tinted glass panel that slides between the roof and the headliner, and often can be tilted open to let in fresh air.

Either can make the interior of your car feel more spacious while driving down South Brunswick and Mount Laurel roads.

What Are Panoramic Roof Systems?

There are additional subcategories of sunroofs and moonroofs, including pop-up, spoiler, inbuilt, top-mount, solar, removable, electronic, and panoramic. Panoramic roof options are often available on mainstream models, but are more common on luxury cars and SUVs. Panoramic roofs come with a large single panel, or with multiple panels in the roof that are either operable or fixed. This allows front and rear passengers to open their panel for fresh air and sunlight.
