What’s the Difference Between a Moonroof and a Sunroof?

You may hear people refer to sunroofs and moonroofs interchangeably, but there are some distinct details that separate the two.

While a sunroof is a panel of glass or metal placed in the roof of a car that slides open or can even pop up, a moonroof is a clear or tinted glass panel between the roof and the headliner that is tilted to let in fresh air. Either option can be a great way to let in more light and air into your cabin on a beautiful day. Find out which you prefer with this moonroof vs. sunroof breakdown from the experts at Findlay Acura.

These include pop-up, spoiler, inbuilt, top-mount, solar, removable, electric, and electronic with the panoramic roof being the most popular among buyers. The main selling point is that they come with several panels that can be adjusted so front and passengers can operate them to their liking for more sunlight or fresh air.
