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.
