Moonroof vs. Sunroof: What's the Difference?

Honda Sunroof in Odyssey


While both a sunroof and moonroof are designed to let light or air into a car, 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, van, or SUV, which can slide open or pop up to allow light and air into the cabin. A moonroof, on the other hand, is usually a clear or tinted glass panel that slides between the roof and the headliner, and in some cases can be tilted open to let in the fresh air. Either one helps to make the interior of your car feel more open and spacious as you drive on the roads in and around Anaheim Hills.

What Are Panoramic Roof Systems?

The different types of sunroofs and moonroofs that Yorba Linda drivers are likely to encounter include pop-up, spoiler, inbuilt, top-mount, solar, removable, electric, and electronic. An available option on many new vehicles, and standard on most luxury vehicles, is the panoramic roof. These generally feature multiple panels in the roof that are either operable or fixed. A panoramic roof, like the one that comes standard with the Honda Pilot Elite model, lets in sunlight while providing expansive views of the sky.

As mentioned, the Honda Pilot Elite comes standard with a panoramic roof situated above the second and third-row seats.
