Moonroof vs. Sunroof: What’s the Difference?

You may have heard the terms sunroof and moonroof used 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, which slides open or pops up to allow light and air into the cabin. A moonroof is normally a clear or tinted glass panel that slides between the roof and the headliner, and can usually be tilted open to let in Stockton fresh air. Either option can make your already luxurious Mercedes-Benz seem more spacious and upscale.

What Are Panoramic Roof Systems?

Vehicles can sport different types of sunroofs and moonroofs, including pop-up, spoiler, inbuilt, top-mount, solar, removable, electric, and electronic. One of the most popular options frequently found on Mercedes-Benz vehicles is the panoramic roof. While these roofs are often standard on luxury models, they’re usually only optional on mainstream brands. Panoramic roofs come with multiple panels in the roof that are either operable or fixed. This design element allows front and rear passengers to open their panel for fresh air and sunlight — just the thing for enjoying Merced’s weather.

Beyond the Mercedes-Benz lineup, Mercedes-Benz of Modesto also carries a wide assortment of pre-owned cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans that feature a sunroof, moonroof, or panoramic roof.

  • Honda – Among the many advantages of a used Honda is the power/tilt moonroof featured in models such as the Accord, Civic, CR-V, Odyssey, Pilot, and Ridgeline.
  • Lexus – A power tilt/slide moonroof can be found on select models of the Lexus ES, GX, LX, and RX.
